See Internet pictures with an innovative browser plug-in

Posting and viewing pictures on the Internet has become a popular activity with sites such as Flickr and Picasa, as well as social networking sites Facebook and MySpace. I have always thought that the quality of the photos are not what they should be; now my opinion has changed. With the PicLens plug-in for Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari, there is a new way to browse pictures that really helps bring out the quality of high-resolution photos.
PicLens instantly transforms your browser into a full-screen, 3D experience for viewing images on the web. Photos will come to life via a cinematic presentation that goes well beyond the confines of the traditional browser window. With PicLens, browsing and viewing images on the web will never be the same again.
At first glance, this just looks like an alternative to browsing photos -- which works quite well, by the way. But what really sold me was how good my photos look using PicLens. It is simple to use, click the arrow that is superimposed on supporting websites and it launches the PicLens viewer.
Here are some of the many websites that work with PicLens:
Don't just take my word for it though, you have to give it a try for yourself. Once you have installed the PicLens plug-in, try one of these specific photo sites:
