I was looking for a certain picture in the "show us some of your pixel work" topic, but I couldn't find it. I just wanted to take a peek at it for inspiration.

With 1103 pages it was kinda hard to find what I was looking for. So I whipped up this quick tool:
http://daid.eu/~daid/tigsource_pics/

It shows all images posted in the "show us some of your pixel work" topic, in a reverse order. 1000 per page. It gets only  updated once a day (getting the full topic is quite stressful) and it only shows each image once. Small warning, it does put quite a bit of stress on your browser.

It might help other people who are looking for inspiration or something else.

I did find what I was looking for, and a LOT more. So have fun, and... you'll be wasting the next few hours of your life looking at pixel art. So you are warned.

You should lower the image count to some lower value, like 100 images for example. Chrome just says that an error occured while loading the page and that's it.

This is great. I believe a sticky is in order. Actually... Don't. I'll be wasting to much time.

Reduced the amount to 500 per page.
Else, use an URL like this:
http://daid2.mine.nu/~daid/tigsource_pics.php?imgCnt=100
Could you check what the max seems to be? Because with 100 per page you have 81 pages, and with 1000 per page you only have 8 pages. (loading all 8000+ images in a single page crashes firefox)

Oh man, this is crazy.  Is there a way to adapt it for other threads (like the 3D thread)?

A picture is worth a 1000 words, so naturally they save a lot of time.

This is pretty great, thank you for it. I only wish it had some way of indicating who had posted each image, like an alt text with the poster's name or a link to the post the image first appeared in

Yes. But I need to change the caching then a bit. But it can work on any topic. (mockup is also an interesting one)

As for the other features, it's only a 50 line php script or so. Quick and dirty because I was looking for something. Didn't think it was this awesome myself Tongue

It's not the means, but the idea that makes it awesome.

Wow this is really cool, thanks heaps for that!

Edit: Quick idea though: could you insert a link to the page the images appeared in? So we can get the author, etc..

Nope, it keeps a 24 hour cache. So it won't overload the server to much, asking for the whole topic creates quite a load (and takes a while)

I understand the requests for topic link/author. I just tried to add that, but because of some the changes the performance is really bad on my test version. So I'll have to rethink my strategy there.

One more vote for links to the post ID of each image.  This was a great idea and should be both stickied and front-paged.   Beer!
