    If you have a lot of images on your hardrive and the normal folder system fails to sort them, hydrus is a nice solution. You load you images into the database and tag them. The tool comes with some extras (search for duplicates, download options for different sites and sharing options) and gets updated almost every week.

    If you're putting pixels into any kind of a web browser, you'll want to be able to scale it up without turning it into a blurry mess. Unfortunately, web browsers are a bit of a moving target in that regard, but this blog post seems up-to-date on the subject.
