Shutterfly's Awesome Upload Tool
Tonight Heidi created a folder filled with 141 digital photos from recent trips that she wanted printed. Upon going to shutterfly and starting the normal upload process (browse for one photo at a time) I decided that somewhere, someone must have made a better tool for uploading photos. Lo and behold there's a link right on the shutterfly page to their upload utility, and they've even got one for Mac OS X.
I download, install, restart my browser and when I go to upload photos I get this awesome plugin which lets me select all 141 photos in one action and it gives me a thumbnail, image name, size and progress bar for each one in the plugin. Looks like the plugin throttles the upload to four photos at a time, keeping the other photos on a "pending" queue.
Way better than any other web-based upload utility I've used.
