I’ve been a Flickr user since 2004, and apart from the occasional social picture, I’ve (ab)used it mainly to store screenshots and illustrations I found on the web. One of the useful tools Flickr provided in those first years, was the “Send to Flickr” bookmarklet: if you’re on a web page with an image you want to save for your own usage, click the bookmarklet, select the image and it’ll be stored in your own Flickr account Strangely enough, the bookmarklet has gone since long (you won’t find it on Flickr.com and most search hits elsewhere point to a vanished page), but the same code still functions perfectly if you had saved it in your browser. Because I was unable to find a copy of it on the web when I needed it on a new machine, I’ve put it online for those people who are scouring Google like I was:
