A place to collect web images for later viewing

Need a place to save tagged images as you browse the web? I use http://vi.sualize.us. This is how it is describe on their website:

What is vi.sualize.us?

vi.sualize.us is a social bookmarking website for visual contents — vi.sualize.us (read visualize us) allows you to remember your favorite images around the web, and share them with everyone.

Sometimes, you are looking through pictures and one of them catches your eye. You know you want to remember it and been able to look at it again in the future, but it's not that easy: downloading to your hard disk is as useless as bookmarking the website in the usual way.

This is where vi.sualize.us changes the rules. Within two clicks, you can quote the image reference in your account, and easily look at it whenever you want to, just as your new favorite picture deserves. All without thinking about what computer you stored it in: always online, always available.

I was saving images I liked to evernote, but now I am using vi.sualize.us. It's easier, and no problems with upload restrictions. The linked images are available from any computer. They can be shared with anyone. Check out my entries at http://vi.sualize.us/hwphoto/.
