So today’s video shows us how to install an extension in Flock. Now, it’s not necessarily a “internet marketing” extension – but it is a pretty cool way to enhance your browsing experience.

The next post will include a list of several additional extensions (or add-ons) with links. We won’t learn a lot about how to use them – that will come later. For now – we’re just getting all of our tools in order.

For this post – Ed is showing us how to install an extension called “PicLens” You can click here to get to PicLens. Or just click the picture below…

Get PicLens

You can see on their site, they don’t mention that it is specifically compatible with Flock – mainly because Flock is relatively new. Just remember, Flock and FireFox are built on the same code base. So – if an add-on is compatible with FireFox, it is most likely compatible with Flock as well.

Time to click the big green “Download” button…Go ahead – just click it…

You’ll probably notice, Flock is looking out for you – warning you about downloading new software to your computer. It’ll happen a lot as you set things up – so get used to it. 🙂 Better safe than sorry, right?

Once you’ve told Flock to “allow” you to download – you’ll see the “download dialog” box.

PicLens Installation Dialog

Click on the “Install” button. If you followed the previous lesson and told Flock to show you the download progress – it’ll do just that for you. Once downloaded and installed – you’ll have to restart Flock.

Go ahead – you can come back. Actually, if you set Flock up to remember the tabs you were using last – it’ll pop back up here for you when it restarts. Pretty cool, huh?


Okay, I’m assuming you’ve gone ahead and installed PicLens and restarted Flock.

From there, Ed shows us how to get around a little bit on YouTube and Flickr.

It’s even more impressive on the video above – one of these days…I’ve got to get a Mac and Screenflow – until then…
