Pretty Pictures

I want a way to go through all the apod and epod archives and grab the high-res­o­lu­tion ver­sions of the pho­tos. I’ve been lured into the evil that is Web­Shots, and want those pho­tos to put in with my oth­ers and rotate as wallpaper/screensavers.

I’m sure there’s a way to do a script for that, but I’m not a pro­gram­mer. I know there are plen­ty of “grab this web­site for offline view­ing” pro­grams avail­able, but I don’t want all the HTML and low-res pho­tos, just the good stuff.

Yes, I am, in fact, finicky, as dwi­vian called me :-)

I would­n’t have thought that I’d ever want a paid mem­ber­ship to Web­Shots, but they’ve man­aged to make me desire one with some of the “unlim­it­ed only” shots. Dammit.

Yes, I think Sam’s right—I’m far more visu­al­ly ori­ent­ed than I’ve admit­ted before. I have to admit that I’m notic­ing such things more con­scious­ly these days, thanks to Robin Williams The Non-Design­er’s Design Book. Now I under­stand why Dr. Seabolt had us get four of Williams’ books for our course. And yes, they’re all well worth their cov­er price. Amazing.
