8/10, I have 2 apps in it
Authored by: mrdeep on Mar 01, '05 08:09:35PM
Here's my toolbar.

I considered also adding some sort of automatic compression / resizing stuff to it, but I concluded that it would be better to just use an Preview or Graphics Converter to do that because of the variety of size / desired quality of images I generally deal with. (Note that the icon makes sense to me as it would upload to my CS account at RPI

I didn't know about this before. I use Open Terminal Here (the Contextual Menu version, not sure where I got if from), but I like the idea of a button in the Finder window.

And I have a few ideas of what I might be able to make to extend this idea - upload files to a server, create an archive, things that I do semi-regularly but usually have to open a terminal for...
