    i use iMessage to send funny pics / interesting links to my friends quite a bit. Its a massive pain in the arse that its not there on lion, but i was wondering if anyone knows of any chrome / safari / ff shortcut or addon that would let me say right click an image and have it somehow pushed to the phone? So that i could iMessage it on from there?

    The only way i can think of doing it is emailing it to myself then saving it but thats a massive pain in the backside

    You could use Dropbox on OS X, put your photos there, then use the Dropbox iOS app and retreive them on the iPhone, save them to Photos.app and then iMessage them out.

    I use an app called myPhoneDesktop. You can send pictures, text, links, etc. from your computer and they get pushed to your iPhone.
