Favorite Apps: Droplr

Droplr is a great app that makes it easy to upload and share files, links, images, etc. It’s a little icon that sits in your menu bar. Drag a file to it, wait a second or two, and a link to your file will be automatically copied to your clipboard. You can also post the link directly to Twitter if you so choose.

One caveat I had with the app was embedding images. I do a fair amount of message boarding, so it was annoying to have to upload the image, follow the link, and right-click/copy the image URL before posting it online. Not very simple.

I googled the issue, and found this solution on Droplr’s support forum. The original poster had the same issue as I did, and as it turns out, right-clicking and copying the image URL causes the image to expire when embedded anyway.

Fortunately, the actual solution is infinitely simpler: just add a “+” to the Droplr URL. Awesome, easy, and works like a charm.

If this website had sponsors, I’d want Droplr to be one. Check it out, and watch the 45 second video.
