I installed some new plug-ins to Firefox, both LJ related. If you run Firefox, these are very handy.
El Jay Icon Maker
El Jay icon maker allows you to right click on any image and create an icon for use with livejournal.com. There are two options to choose from when making an icon "Create Icon Instantly" and "Create Icon With Options." Selecting either link redirects you to the El Jay icon maker home page where you can rotate, crop, add text and borders to the image. The El Jay icon maker was made for use with llivejournal.com, but can be used on any site that requires an image smaller than 100x100 for an icon.
Requires: Firefox: 0.9.x - 1.0+
LiveJournal Hook - LOVE THIS ONE!!
Integration of LiveJournal specific tags and text formatting into the right click context menu. Other features include: Automatic random selection of user icon. Automatic selection of privacy setting. LiveJournal poll creation wizard.
Right-click in the update portal or in a comment reply to see all of the options. VERY handy indeed!
Requires: Firefox: 0.9.x - 1.0 on Windows
