    how's making a montage from a Google Image search sound?

    well some guy's gone and done just that using the Google webservices API - and it's pretty cool stuff.

    there's just no guarantee that the images will be "work safe" so be careful... ;)

    Now that's fun - pretty pointless but a lot of fun!

    I do like how it identifies each source so you can go investigate where it came from.

    sorry themadchemist - it must hate you. :p :D

    you've just gotta be really careful what you search for... although for lots of my searches i came back with slightly different thumbnails of the same original picture. would be alot better if they had 20 different pics. that would be great...

    and yeah it's good that you can go to the original picture as well. this may be the new way to search Google Images. :p

    Hee hee. That is so cool.

    You could print and cut it into squares at 45 degrees, and make a fiendishly hard jigsaw puzzle...

    The next version (in beta right now) is supposed to be much faster, etc. But that version is pretty cool. I haven't spent the time to actually get one to look perfect... but then again, I haven't spent a huge amount of time on it.
