Get a Smooth Image Gallery For Amazon Products With PictureFox

Himanshu Yadav

Amazon, as you know, is the premier site for purchasing different kinds of products. Apart from purchasing, you can also preview images of products in the inbuilt image viewer. But this image viewer is little clumsy. Also, watching images by clicking through them one by one is a time consuming task.

PictureFox addon for Firefox provides a cool, fast and visually-attractive way to view product images in Amazon. It displays images in a flow style image viewer which is eye-catching, and saves time and effort. Although, the add-on is in the experimental stage at the moment, it worked pretty well when I tried it out.

The following screenshot shows the default image viewer in Amazon, where you need to click and scroll through to view an image.

After you download and install the Picturefox add-on, go to the add-on settings in Tools> Addons. It will display a Picturefox settings option as shown in a screenshot below.

Check all the boxes given to enjoy all the features of this extension such as image flow gallery, costumer pictures and multiple gallery instances.

Now go to Amazon and search for any product you wish to purchase. In the example given below, I searched for Nikon D90 12.3 MP Digital SLR. In the left you can see that now there’s a small play button on the top-left of the main image. Click this button and it will redirect you to new and improved Amazon picture viewer page.

You can see in the screenshot below the way images are displayed. Notice that images are of full size (no need to use Amazon’s zoom button). You can jump to the next image by clicking on it, using the arrow keys on the keyboard or by using the scroll wheel of the mouse.

Overall it is fast, easy to use and a powerful extension to insert an image gallery for every Amazon product. You can view high resolution, marketplace, normal and customer pictures at one place in a smooth interface.

Download PictureFox for viewing Amazon product images in a better way.
