Right after I mentioned Kink.com in my last post, Thomas Roche sent me a press release announcing that Kink.com has redone all its photo galleries so you can view ‘em all fancy shmancy — full screen, pan, zoom, etc — with the PicLens plugin.
The PicLens plugin, which transforms photo browsing into a tactile, three-dimensional experience for users of Internet Explorer, FireFox and Safari, is available for free download at PicLens.com. Once installed, the utility allows users to view all Kink.com galleries in the new format. The PicLens galleries join an extensive library of streaming and downloadable videos as Kink.com’s premium adult content.
Rather than thumbnails in a traditional browser window, PicLens galleries are shown in cinematic glory as if they were virtual photos on a giant gallery wall in virtual space. As described by the PicLens website, “Our new interactive ‘3D Wall’ lets you effortlessly drag, click, and zoom your way around a wall of pictures for an extraordinary, full-screen viewing experience.”
I just installed it and restarted Firefox to see it in action (using only the PicLens SFW test gallery; I’m at the day job today and while of course I’m not billing for blogging time, I’m not going to visit Kink.com while VPNed into the client network, now, am I? In fact I’m being so Responsible I haven’t even uploaded a kinky picture to illustrate this post. Yay me!).
