PicLens Is Like iTunes Cover Flow, But For Pictures



Step aside, Cover Flow. Firefox plug-ins rarely get us excited, but PicLens is one of the most impressive we've ever seen. The plug-in creates a 3D stream of photos from a range of sources on the Web, including flickr, Google Image Search, Facebook, and more.

The full-screen experience of zipping through your photos is instantly responsive and seamless because PicLens does some fancy image loading in the background. You can zoom in and out with scroll-wheel movement, and clicking and dragging zips the screen along towards hundreds of new photos.

CoolIris offers PicLens for free and it runs on both Windows and Mac OS X.

Get it free at the Switched/CNET Download Center.
