Image Junky – Recent Downloads (Some NSFW)

And now for another edition of Image Junky – What Has Dan Right-Clicked In the Last Five Days? Taking a look at my recent pictures it looks like I visited a few sci-fi websites along with some cool photography and portraiture sites. I don’t always remember where I get these, but the source matters little to me. It’s the picture that I love!

All images are named as found. If you’d like more information, I suggest using TinEye Reverse Image Search. Google Images also has a reverse image search that so many people don’t even know about.

Image Junky – Recent Downloads (Maybe NSFW)

When I say I’m an image junky, it’s not a lie. Sure, the “junky” part is hyperbole, but the fact is that I download a lot of images every day. If I see an appealing picture, photo, drawing, art, animated gif, diagramme, painting, or anything else that might be rendered in a manner pertaining to standards of the Joint Photographic Experts Group, Portable Network Graphics, Graphics Interchange Format… I’ll right click and save it. Actually, I don’t even do that much, I use a Firefox extension called Save File To that allows me to set up a directory structure for easy sorting, and then save directly into that structure.

I mean, I have to have some organization. When you’re downloading perhaps a few hundred images per week, you need to be able to find them again. Besides, I am a librarian.

My tastes in images run a full spectrum from beautiful people to beautiful scenery. Sometimes the people and scenery are images of fantasy or sci-fi, places that never were, people who never lived. I like design, people, science fiction, fantasy, art, posters, movies, music, whatever. Is it a cool image? Save it.

Beyond that, thanks to smart folders in OS X, I can set up a folder that shows me what I’ve downloaded in the last few days. And then I can share it on my website.

Just like this.

Image Junky – Flights of Fantasy (Some NSFW)

You know what I’ve missed?

My Image Junky sharing. I used to have a blog focused on it, but it wasn’t very well done. However, I have this site, and this site has a Gallery connected to it. Since this site revolves around online creativity and, shall we say, the “clickable arts,” I figure I can bring back the image junky anew. So to kick that off, here are some fantastic (literally, as the base word for “fantastic” is “fantasy.) images from Boris Vallejo.

As I share these, they’ll also wind up in the Gallery, and many of them will be categorized into their own albums.
