Zemanta Browser Widget vs. Zemanta Plugin

When I first downloaded the web browser widget, I was not too satisfied. They have actually given that improved things so much that I have to admit a true fondness for Zemanta. I like the online variation so much I decided to give the real plugin a try, simply to see if it had any extra functions.

So, after I disabled the web browser widget, I installed and activated the plugin. I saw that it generally looked the same. However, the photos it picked were somewhat different than the web browser widget selection. Not a lot that you d observe – in fact it may simply be that the plugin sort them differently.

It goes along with the whole concept of magazine-style blog sites that have lots of content that interests people. I have attempted a couple other curation tools, but Zemanta is the most convenient and most readily available of the existing products.

< map wp-tag-caption id =" "line up =" alignright" width =" 75" caption="Web browser (Photo credit: Wikipedia) "/ wp-end-tag > The photo above- or maybe to your left depending upon your web browser, is an eample of what Zemanta does. It was chosen based upon tet I had already typed into the post editor. Heres another photo, undoubtedly based on the word “web browser” in this post. I minimized the size automatically utilizing the Zemanta photo controls.

Heres a lot of related short articles Zemanta chosen for me.

The plugin looks practically the like the browser widget version, and runs simply as quickly (I was worried about that aspect). Associated articles are all there, and tags too.

It would appear the plugin version of Zemanta works basically the very same as the browser widget version.

It would appear the plugin variation of Zemanta works essentially the exact same as the browser widget version. For me it makes far more sense to have the web browser variation – then its automatically there for any blog site I tend to. For somebody who only has a single blog site, or has a computer system that lack horse power (any internet browser widgets will suck resources), it may be an excellent method to opt for the plugin. However, I will recommend the internet browser widget as by default call.

By for now …

      Are these from a digital camera? If so, you can get them printed anywhere for a few pence each. Don’t know what photo credits are…sorry.

    If I Ask A Stranger To Take My Photo With My Camera, Who Owns The Copyright? Many times couples ask for a stranger to take a picture, but since the stranger took the picture, does he or she own the copyright. Who would the photo be credited to if it is obvious that I was in the photo and therefore couldn’t have taken the photo.
    In the case of Ashley Dupree, Spitzer’s call girl, she is claiming claim copyright infringement for her photos being used on commercial websites, but how can she prove she even owns the copyright? Wouldn’t the photographer need to do that?

      -Copyright belongs to the author of the work.- In this case, a stranger. Theory has nothing to do with it, this is copyright law. Without a written contract copyright does not change hands. You can own the picture, but you can’t own the copyright. That has been determined in court over and over. Unless you are willing to commit perjury and risk imprisonment, your “claim” means nothing.

      fhotoace, at least you didn’t call yourself an educator this time. This is basic photography copyright 101 – and you let people believe you on here.

      oxymandia, that may be a collective work. The assistant would be under contract.

    Firefox – Missing Plugins, No Suitable Plugins Found? This happens to me often.
    I try to use a site like this with Mozilla Firefox: http://office.microsoft.com/training/training.aspx?AssetID=RC011313811033
    but it will say “Additional Plugins are required to display all the media on this page”. So I click “Install Missing Plugins”, but then it says “No suitable plugins were found.” So I click “Manual Install” and it takes me to the Windows Media download center. Even though I already have WMP, I try to install it again but it says I already have the most updated version. Help?!

      You can go to your local bank and ask them to resent you a credit card with your photo. They will take a photo of you. Just your face and have it sent to you with in 3-7bussiness days. And yes you get 1% back on anything you buy. But the only problem is, is that this 1% gets build up to how much you spent in a qt ( 3months) then it gets added to your checking or savings. All the cash back with in that 3months will be put on a hold untill release.

    Why Do Photographers Get So Butthurt About Photo Credits? I’ve seen this all over Facebook and elsewhere. Every time somebody posts a picture of themselves that was taken by somebody else, the photographer always posts “Give credit to where credit is due”, or something like that. Is it illegal to post someone else’s picture without crediting the photographer?

      I don’t know

      If someone uses something of yours, wouldn’t you want to at least be acknowledges at the artist?

      Under copyright law, no one can use copyrighted material without expressed written permission and usually some payment for using the images. Whether the photographer is given credit or not, without permission, you are violating copyright law

    Firefox 3 Plugins? After installing Firefox 3 my real player plug in is not working. How to rectify the problem?

    View Comment

      Most of the plugins for FireFox are built for FireFox 2 or earlier. Since Firefox 3 is really just an open source beta testing version of Firefox and is quite unstable I recommend that you uninstall that version and just run firefox 2 until firefox 3 becomes the current version. once firefox3 becomes the current version then they will make sure it is compatible with the current plugins that are in existence. That is pretty much your only way to rectify your problem.
