If you’re a flickr user, there are three plugins that you need to know about: Flickr4Writer
, and Flickr4Word
. I had mentioned the Flickr4Writer plugin before when I blogged about some of my favorite plugins
for Windows Live Writer - it helps you to insert flickr photos into your blog posts. However, thanks to gHacks
, I learned that there are also similar plugins for both Word and Outlook. Like the WLW plugin, they give you easy access to your flickr photos from directly within the application. You can also use the built-in search feature to find photos from other flickr users that match the tags you enter in the search box. The Outlook and Word plugins only support Office 2007 installations (Word 2007, Outlook 2007). All of the plugins are available from their respective sites (linked above) as free downloads. Hey, does this count as software+services? I think it might!
