    Greeting, I am Han, an Engineer who like Andy Warhol.

    I have an project called "Eye See Run", one of my goal
    on this project is to let everyone make pop art easily.

    "15 minutes of fame.", just like Andy Warhol said.

    Please give it a try, and tell me what you think:

    www.eyeseerun.com

    If you have any question or problem when using it,
    please be sure to make contact with me as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

    very very very complicated. the site does not look welcoming and the product is not user friendly. the concept may have a place but before posting this anywhere else i would keep working on the delivery.

    while($get_it !== true){ continue; }

    I understand the concept, but don't understand why there are multiple input boxes. I tried one box with "cars" and got what I expected. Then I tried one box with "blue" and another box with "cars" and I did not get pics of blue cars. Needs to be simplified. Too many buttons on the bottom that the average user will never use or understand. Don't forget, most people are not that smart.

    It's an interesting concept. I've tried similar experiments in the past. My main issue with it is that the results do not come quickly enough and don't display in a very usable manner.

    Still working on it, right now I am focus on the algorithms to
    show thumbnails better.

    multiple input boxes let user try and see if there are something
    interesting within the whole combined image.

    For example, if you try Bush on one box and Obama on another,
    in some page between the thumbnails it may look like
    both of them are talking, or someone's doing strange thing to another.

    Thanks, I start this project on 2009 april,
    and now it's almost been one year.

    Results don't come quickly is due to I am using free API right now,
    I hope I can have chance make my project more formal in the future.

    Also there are debug hotkeys for change pages quickly: < and >
    Other debug hotkeys are ? [ ] = : " |
    Feel free to give it a try.

    __________________________________________________ __________________


    I am really glad to hear the concept has potential from you guys,
    because I have been working really hard on these image algorithms
    in order to achieve the goal right now.

    The concept is simple, but when you want to make it possible,
    you have to accurately calculate every step such as images'
    precise size without losing aspect ratio,
    the best position to arrange with other images,
    and successive display order for show.

    I even apply for patent on this project due to it's uniqueness.

    After almost one year, I found myself put all my time and energy
    on how to figure out the image algorithms, and have no clue on
    how to make it become popular and earn profits from it.

    If you have any suggestion on my project's future,
    please let me hear it.

    Thank you.

    Bottom line is user simplicity. I like your idea and can see you have a lot of work and thought to it. But you are falling into a classic trap when developing something, which is to make it more complicated FOR THE USER because it's too boring for YOUR complex brain! Look at Google's home page, pretty simple isn't it?

    We don't need much on your site except a search box (singular) and maybe a "Stop" and "Go" button so the pics stop coming and can resume. I was not sure where to put my cursor to get the pics going again.

    One thing for you to do is "User Testing", and I don't mean your nerd brain buddy 3 houses down from you! Get some normal "stupid" people to navigate your site and sit and watch them without saying anything and watch for the things they get confused about.

    Instead of putting this site in a coding forum, I would put it on some woman's recipe forum and ask them how it is! Seriously...I would.

    One thing I would change is the header. I don't care for it.

    The site itself looks fine, same old same old. It's been done a million times before. Would love to some some originality here but it is what it is.

    Orlando, how can you say it's the "same old same old" or "A million times"? That's the first image search I've seen like that one.

    Aero, I think he's talking about the design.
