Wow, very nice! You were right - sorry.
I will give a sign when the script is fully skinnable.

Thanks again for adding the skin support , it's working perfectly
One small suggestion I have would be to split the ListItem.Label into two separate labels. Right now it's only possible to display the album name and headline name in one place (I used a hackery bit to only display the album name at the top). It would be nice if I could display the album name at the top and the headline name above the description.
Keep up the great work

This is a very nice addon, excellent work sphere.
The Guardian UK website has a similar photo journal series called 'Eyewitness' (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/series/eyewitness) would it be possible to add this as a source? It is one picture per day, usually of artistic and/or technical merit.

i have splitted the infos into the three following elements (for use in skinfile):
$INFO[ListItem.Property(Album)] -> Sourcename: "Boston.com: The Big Picture"
$INFO[ListItem.Label] -> Album or Picture title: "Pictures of the day 09.11.2010"
$INFO[ListItem.Property(duration) -> Element/Len Elements: "1/10"
could you please test this betaversion and tell if it works like you requested?

this website is already on my list, but to be honest, this site is not good to scrape:
- It has only low-res pictures on its "index page", I had to load for each picture its article - which would take >1 sec per picture.
- It has no real albums
I am working on a nearly complete rewritten version with a dynamic scraper system - there it will scrape each source and save its data to xml-files - which will be cached.
If this proof of concept will be successful this website and several others will be available. This is planned as version 1.4.0
But, website suggestions are always welcome, they will get at least on my list

You are going to make a new thread or should I post feature suggestions here?

Hm, you are right - I forgot to create a new thread...
I will do when 1.4 is there.
Please post your feature suggestions here until 1.4
smithr99 Wrote:+1 for BBC in-pictures. Always some great shots on there
The same like with guardian, good photos, hard/slow to scrape. In 1.4 with xml cache it will be included.

Hey Sphere, just tried this out and it's working perfectly Many thanks!

Sphere, I just thought about this site maybe being suitable as a source: http://gigapica.geenstijl.nl/ ?
It's a dutch site, but they have started providing english descriptions some time ago.
One issue may be that not all images are in landscape format (mostly when in an album), but using a fixed with and scaling method this can be remedied (to an extent) in the skin file.
Just thought I'd let you know. Cheers
