How it Works

Select a game from within LaunchBox and right click to bring up your context menu.  choose Image Search and your default browser will display the images from AOL, Google, Bing, PicSearch and Yahoo.
Find an image you like and then copy the URL and Paste it in the download form that has also opened and paste the URL.  Click download to save your file.   The file will be the renamed to the selected 
Title and save in the  Plugin/ImageSearch/downloads folder.   

In BigBox make sure you have the details screen turned on. select a game and in the details screen choose Image Search and your default browser will display the images from AOL, Google, Bing, PicSearch and Yahoo. Find an image you like and then copy the URL and Paste it in the download form that has also opened and paste the URL.  Click download to save your file.   The file will be the renamed to the selected 
Title and save in the  Plugin/ImageSearch/downloads folder.   

Under tools in LaunchBox only you can access the Image Search Configuration. Here you can make various changes

2.  Select which Search engines you like to use
3.  Change the default path of your Downloaded images.

Any chance this awesome plugin could be updated? I think it's buggy sometimes, and I got this crash after using it for about a 30min session... (right when submitting a URL to an image, for a game) - I'm using the latest NON-BETA v8.3)

I wrote this plugin back when plugins were introduced into Launchbox. I looks like with all the updates in LB/BB I may need to revisit this plugin.    I use it a lot myself to fill in the missing artwork.    I will take a look at and see what i can do to improve and release a new version.

Hi again. Any chance something newer can be released for this? It's was really helpful, but now it won't even launch with the latest version of Launchbox (v12)
