Reveal blocked images on many different sites

This Safari extension helps reveal blocked images on Google Books, ebay, life.com and many other sites that try to disallow saving images. It adds 'Reveal Image' options to the right-click menu, shows the image name and dimensions, and allows opening the image in a new window or tab.

MICRO-FAQ:

CAN YOU PROVIDE 'DOWNLOAD IMAGE' ALONG WITH 'REVEAL IMAGE' FUNCTIONALITY?
I wish the Safari extensions API could trigger downloads, but it currently cannot. Nor does it allow rewriting headers, so content-type trickery won't work either. To save the image you'll have to 'Reveal' it and then use the normal 'Save Image' mechanism.

ON GOOGLE BOOKS, I WANT TO RIGHT-CLICK AND DIRECTLY DOWNLOAD IMAGES.
My other little extension does that.

DOES THIS EXTENSION REVEAL BACKGROUND IMAGES?
Yes, to a limited extent.

I HAVE A SUGGESTION.
Love to hear it! Please leave a comment.

Unhide and save Google Books images

You may also want to check out my Image Reveal extension, which unblocks images on many different sites.

Google Books disables saving book images and related functions (open image, save image as, etc) in the right-click (context menu) when viewing book images.

This extension for Safari, Google Books Image Unhider, re-enables those image-related actions.
