search cancel – See The Pictures Of The Day

GimmeShiny.comThere is just no end to the stream of inspiring artwork that can be found online. It is a bit hard to estimate the number of files that must be added daily to Flickr alone, not to mention all the popular services for hosting images that make up the Net.


As such, keeping fully up-to-date defies any human-powered search attempt. That is where this new service comes in.

In essence, Gimme Shiny will let you visualize the latest pictures that crop up in several image hosting services. Upon setting your browsers to the site, and without the need to register or furnish information of any kind, the pictures of the day will start playing as a slideshow for you to see what’s up at a mere glance. When you see something you like, you will be able to head straight to where it came from as the hosting service is linked to.

Some issues that the programmer hopes to eventually address include adding yet more image streams, and adding full support for mobile browsers. In the meantime, you can check the site as it stands right now and see if you come across any potential eye candy. In Their Own Words

“Gimme Shiny is a JavaScript slideshow of today’s popular images from Flickr and deviantART, as well as the most recent images on FFFFOUND, brought to you by Ian Gilman and his trusty amanuensis, Jeannie Cool. Click any image to go to its page.”

Why It Might Be A Killer
