Image Searches Made Easy
As a Web Developer and Virtual Assistant I am constantly on the lookout for images that can be used for a multitude of projects. Frankly, I don’t want to devote a lot of time digging around the internet looking for images. Ginipic takes image search to a whole new and rather exciting level meaning that you can now search image search engines, photo sharing websites, or even your own local picture collections simultaneously.
Ginipic is a free desktop-based application that eliminates the need to search for an image, download it to your local machine and then copy and paste the image to whatever document or application you are working in. The application returns thumbnails as you can see below. Simply click on the thumbnail and see the result in a large preview window. Ginipic allows you to enter a search query and then drag and drop the image to anywhere you want. You can also post it to a blog, save it locally in a folder on your computer, share it on social networks, or even set it as a desktop wallpaper.
One of the things that I greatly appreciate about this application is that they are very cognizant of copyright issues and they make sure that you see the appropriate owner details and copyright level for any given search result.
Currently, Ginipic only supports the Windows Operating System so if you are a Mac user, you will not be able to use this application just yet. It also requires that you install Microsoft .Net Framework in order to run the sofware. Overall, I think this is a great application and would like to hear from other users.
