We’re happy to announce the release of the Loupe Bookmarklet.
What is it?
Why so cool?
The fun thing with the Loupe Bookmarklet is that it also grabs the link attached to the photo. So for example, when you make a collage of photos from your favorite blog, if the photos are linked from another source, when you click on the photo, it will go to the link attached to it. Here’s an example of a collage made using images from Pinterest. Click here if you want the original, or click on the image below:
When you scroll or hove-over an image, you can get a larger preview of the image. If you click on the image, it will go to the Pinterest page that the image came from (or is linked to). Pretty cool right?
What happens if you make a collage out of videos?
The Bookmarklet tries to figure out what happens when you click on an image in the completed collage and this not only applies to photos but videos as well. Check out this collage made of Youtube videos by Vincent! Click here for the original or click on the image below:
Now scroll over the screenshots from each video and what do you see? Now click one of the screenshots and where does it take you? Pretty cool right? What are you waiting for?
How do I get a Loupe Bookmarklet?
