Safari 2.0 contextual menus: Save to iPhoto or iTunes Web Browsers
This may not be news for some, but I was pleasantly suprised to discover these nuggets of goodness. When mousing over photos or images, Safari's contextual menu includes 'Add Image to iPhoto Library,' allowing you to easily dump the image straight into iPhoto.

The same applies to linked MP3s, allowing you to 'Open with iTunes' from within Safari's contextual menu.

[robg adds: Yes, it's a contextual menu hint, but sometimes these things go unseen and are worth sharing. Granted, I don't use Safari all that often, but I had no idea they'd made it so easy to add images to your iPhoto library.]

This doesn't work for me, most likely because I don't use iPhoto. I do use iTunes, however, and so the "Add to iTunes" item does show up for me when appropriate.

Only for current iPhoto users?
Authored by: johngoodman on Jul 29, '06 06:30:28PM

I'm using iPhoto and I still don't get the contextual menu option, but my version of iPhoto is only 2.0.1. I'm up-to-date with everything else, using Safari version 2.0.4 (419.3) and Mac OS 10.4.7. I guess that's what happens when you don't buy the iLife upgrades (or a new computer.)

Safari 2.0 contextual menus: Save to iPhoto or iTunes

I wish someone would write a plug-in that would allow me to setup other locations to download items to through the contextual menus. I use iView Media Pro instead of iPhoto and it would be nice to be able to download right into one of my iView watch folders.

Twist - when you have right clicked on an image in a web page (and the contextual menu has appeared), press the Option key. You'll see that Save Image to the Desktop changes to Save Image As.... Similarly, Save Linked File to the Desktop changes to Save Linked File As....

From there, it's just a short hop, skip and a jump - via the File Save dialog box - to put your files wherever you want to. Especially if, for example, you have added your iView watch folder to the sidebar...

An easy alternate to contextual menus: Save to iPhoto or iTunes
Authored by: Walt Kessel on Jul 28, '06 02:14:03PM
If the contextual menu hint doesn't work for you, try the one at this link: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20060531021354168&query=paper%2Bclip
It's just as easy.

In some cases, it should work better with the "alt" key stroke.
