Save File to

Great Time Saver Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am a digital painter. This extension is great to sort quickly when I hand pick stock photos I am likely to use for reference. I like the fact that it bypasses the "save file to" pop-up when you save to a preselected folder. Saves some time there, unlike some similar extensions.

If it had the option to save a link to file from the page I got the image from at the same time (preferably named the same as the image) I would give this five stars. I (as well as many other artists) would find that addition very useful as I give credit to the owner of the reference stock when I use it. As it is, I now save the image with this extension, and save a link to the page I'm on with another. After that, it is often necessary to rename the web shortcuts to match the image name so that they are easy to find with the link right next to the image when sorted by name. I know not everyone would find that feature useful, although it might also be handy on occasion when downloading software you'd like to revisit the website of later. especially smaller utilities with developers that didn't think to make a click-able link in their about tab. that's a minor thing, but could save you a search in Google.

I'd also like to point out that I haven't found any commercial download software that will do that simple save a link back with the image. I doubt that's a practical thing with mass downloaders though as they'd likely link back to the file itself whereas I need a link back to the page it was on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1-signed).
