Some books are available in their entirety, some have limited previews and the others have no previews at all. It so happens that often one needs only a topic or two from a specific book. While the Internet is a good source for finding the information otherwise, I have quite often seen people trying (unsuccessfully of course) to copy-paste, save images or take screen shots of Google Book search results.
If you have been in a similar situation where you badly wanted a page or two of the book, try the Google Books Downloader.
For those folks out there who have WordPress blogs, have you ever tried to post an image as a thumbnail only to have it actually appear as a full-sized image that takes up the entire page? You can still click on the image to view it, but it will appear in the blog post as only half an image, and makes the post look really congested and cluttered. I have had that problem occasionally, and resizing the image doesn’t help, either. A little bug in WordPress, I suppose
So this morning I opened a Flicker account, uploaded the Death Certificates to it, and then added them here as thumbnails. All very simple to do, and the results are exactly what I wanted. I have previously used PhotoBucket, but Flicker is much simpler, so I’ll probably use it in the future.
