Image information

Various (command line) ways to find the format of an image:

  • file FILENAME
  • identify FILENAME (requires imagemagick)
  • sips -g all FILENAME (OSX only?)

Better images

Getting better images from various sites:


Replace 170x170 (or sometimes 100x100) in the image URL with 600x600


Replace ._SL500_AA300_.jpg or ._SS400_.jpg at the end of the URL with just .jpg (sometimes the letters and numbers are slightly different but it always starts with a dot and an underscore). This will usually get rid of any white borders around the image too.


Click the image to go to the page with the full images. Even when there isn't a "more images" link, the page will often have a larger front image.


Replace 1.100.jpg, 1.200.jpg, etc., at the end of the URL with 1.0.jpg


Replace cover_50.jpg, cover_160.jpg, etc., at the end of the URL with cover.jpg

Replace serve/300x300, serve/500, etc., with serve/_
