After installation of Open With Photoshop you can right click on any image inside a web page and choose Open With Photoshop option from context menu to send the very image to the Adobe Photoshop. If the Photoshop is not in open state the add-on will start up the Photoshop and will place the image inside the Photoshop when Photoshop is ready.
