Pics are too small and worse many of these are in poor comdition. It took me about 3 minutes in Photoshop to correct the severe magenta color cast that many of these images have which is typical of slide shots or prints sitting around since the 1950s, 60s or 70s.
Today more than half a million people visit Mesa Verde National Park each year to gaze in wonder at the remarkable ruins and ponder what might have happened to the people who lived and died there.
Pictures are certainly nice, but is it only me that thinks that quality of the pictures is nowhere near for desktop wallpaper?
If anyone reading this post cares and is not aware of it, the 30x30 pixel thumbnails can be saved as .ico files and used as desktop icons if you are into custom icons.
Others have commented on the thumbnail size. My complaint is the laborious process of downloading the images. I will be the first to admit that I am probably not aware of a streamlined way - and there certainly is not a clue with this post. For me to capture the full resolution image - I click new image - I click the image - a new page opens with the full resolution - I right click and select save as - I then have to reassign the folder that I want the image to be saved to. And then I repeat the entire process - way too repetitious. I would love to have the series - I can figure out how to set up wallpaper and change the image on my own. Just provide an option to download all the images at once in a compressed file, or???
Who are you talking to? The guy too lazy to download them all individually, or the guy too lazy to zip them all into a one-file download?
why pay for something when u can get it for free. http://www.adsensoftware.com/imagegrab/ But u do not get the large image that u have clicked on.
You need to use bulk image downloader. You open it on the page you have the thumbnails on and it scans the page for the real images and displays them for you . You select what you want downloaded, the rest you discard, then you tell it where youwant the images downloaded to and hit start. Bingo it's done.
Check out the Yellowstone Digital Slide File website. Park employees have digitized hundreds of park photographs. Available courtesy of the National Park Service.
Excellent Idea! Better if one could select a list have fresh pics replace the older ones randomly of based on seasons/any other predefined criteria like month, etc.
I would like to suggest the use of larger thumbnails across the board for the Techrepublic website. As they are they might as well just be links because it really is impossible to see any of the pictures details. Just a thought from a regular.
