For Firefox Users

Then just hit the button and you are set. For simple posting, you cannot go wrong with this Tumblr extension for Firefox.
Tumblr Post is another convenient extension for sending those photos and links over to your Tumblr page. This tool works a bit differently than the official Tumblr extension in that it will post either the current page or a photo from it without any other actions needed and no pop-up window.
When you choose to post to Tumblr with this add-on, it is does so from the button’s menu. You will then receive a simple confirmation message. The extension also includes an option to write a text entry or view your Tumblelogs. Additionally, you can click to visit your Tumblr page quickly. For the fastest way to post, Tumblr Post delivers.
Tumblr Hi-Res is a unique extension in that it will look for high-resolution images for those you see on Tumblr. If one is available, you will be immediately redirected to it.
To use this add-on in Firefox, simply right-click your mouse on a Tumblr image and select Open Image in New Tab.

If there is no other version, you will simply see the original image. Tumblr Hi-Res is good for seeing those awesome images in a better way.
This posting extension works almost identically to the official Tumblr extension, with one exception. Post to Tumblr will automatically populate the description for you. You can edit this of course, but it does add a bit of convenience displaying the link within the description for you when posting a photo.
So, if you do not like the official Firefox Tumblr extension for some reason, give Post to Tumblr a try.

Post to Tumblr is the official Tumblr extension for Chrome (not to be confused with the Firefox extension of the same name).
