Hi i was wondering if you can search google images for images a certain size. For example; i need a graphic 720x375 in size. If so could you please tell me how or if you know of any other sites where i can do this.

Thank You
James

Google only allows you to restrict the image search to certain vague "size groups." But you can do this with the Yahoo Image search API, with a bit of programming. I did this for CoverBrowser.com to aggregate only images above a certain size – the Yahoo API result contains the image dimensions, so you can automatically reject those images which don't meet your requirements. However, if you only accept a very specific dimension and nothing else, this may become too slow.

Normal Yahoo image search allows you to restrict your dimensions to just wallpapers, though. Search for e.g. [wallpapers of flowers] and you get only dimensions like 640 x 480, 1024 x 768 and so on. (Incidentally, that syntax does not work with the Yahoo API.)

Thank You. But you are right that would take to long
