    Default Is there someone here that can help me?

    Hello all,
    I know, i've just registered and already asking for help ^^
    But I need something done, and I dunno where to start actually :/

    I own a website, eih.bz (yeah theme aint finished yet, add /beta/ to see the new one )
    it's an image hosting site, full legal, no illegal stuff on it etc.
    We already have some nice tools to make uploading/remoting images faster but in the last weeks more and more people are asking me for the chrome addon so they easily can remote images.

    I already have a FireFox addon that does this:
    - Right click on the image in the browser to re-upload it to EIH
    - I have a button next to the address bar (same as our favicon)

    --> click on it: it opens EIH in the same tab
    --> middle mouse click: opens in new tab

    So yeah, that's a simple one.

    I'm wondering if someone could do the same but for chrome?
    I'm willing to make a little donation if needed, if not, I could include somewhere a link to your site or w/e saying "chrome addon by xxx"

    I'd appreciate any help.

    Thanks a lot!

    Best regards, pi0

    First thing Id do if I was you would be to offer a bookmarklet, the advantage of a bookmarklet is they can run on any browser (including mobile devices and what not). Just get them to open the image in a new tab and then click on the bookmarklet. Put the following code in a link for a bookmarklet....
    Code:
    javascript:location.href = "http://www.epicimagehost.com/?url=" + location.href;
    Here's a very simple extension for you....
    EpicImageHost.zip
    ....you'll need to pack it or upload it to Google.

    You might also think of asking this extensions author......
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...nfoccbdpeagdah
    ...if he would include your service, could help with your exposure if nothing else.

    Good luck!

    I didn't pack it as I thought you might like to check the text as I did it rather quickly.
    You can find instructions on packing it for chrome here......

    Wow, awesome work mate, I appreciate it.
    What if I want it more advanced? Like capturing only a selected area or capturing the whole active page..
    Got any tips for me?
