Auto-Save for Flash

My CS4 just crashed.  Again.  Although I try to be good about saving, sometimes I get focused on what I’m doing, and it’s always at these times when Flash decides that clicking that last frame was in some way offensive.  Much swearing ensues and a short break is taken, then I begin that complex string of animations again.

This time though I thought to employ google, and turned up a neat little extension on flashguru: Flash Auto-Save.

Pay no attention to the comment about it not working on CS4, I’ve installed it and it works fine.  The only thing to be aware of is that it needs to be visible at all times, and hiding it in a panel group will stop it working.

I hope this saves more people a bit of fury.

FireShot Firefox Extension

Looking through Firefox extensions always causes me to install something, and often not what I was originally looking for. That was the case with FireShot, a nifty little tool that captures your current browser viewport, or the entire page, and lets you perform various actions with the resulting image.

You can just save your grab as a jpg, png, bmp or compressed file, but before you do that you might want to edit it, adding text and graphics. Alternatively you can copy it, upload it, mail it or open it in a pre-selected editor of your choice.

The built in editor seems pretty well featured at a glance, the only obvious omission being an option to resize. I can see this getting a lot of use.
