Are You Spending Too Much Time Getting Images from the Web to Your Website?

What if I told you, any image I come across on the vast internet, that I could get it onto my own server, and get the new URL into my clipboard in 3 clicks?

Well I can (gotcha, puppy!):


See there’s this PHP script I drop onto my server, which makes this bookmarklet. Which when I click the bookmarklet I can click on any image and it sends it over to my server and then loads a page presenting me with the image’s new URL and image tag I can post write in my blog.

Here’s the code.

Here’s what it looks like:

Where did it come from?

This bookmarklet/script is the first project I pledged on ($3.00) using a new startup called Micropledge. And it’s certainly a sucess story. PaulButler finished this in a matter of days. The website lets people pledge small amounts of money to get open source software built. It’s pretty neat. Here are all of the projects I’ve thought of so far.

    […] As far as I can tell, this was the first open-source project to be completed through microPledge. We ran into a few bugs, but Ben Hoyt, one of the site’s founders, was very helpful and fixed all the bugs we ran into within hours. If you want to pitch an open-source project idea to programmers, microPledge is the place to go. Greg, the guy who pitched the idea and pledged towards it, had a good experience as well. […]

    A firefox plugin or extension that allowed a right-click & “save to server”, and a copy to the clip-board would be two-clicks.

    Good point, Ivan. That would be better, yes.
