    QuentinJ - a question... In your OneDrive folder ( Pictures > Saved pictures >Windows 10 wallpapers > Spotlight ) there's a bunch of pictures that are 1MB-6MB in size, while all pictures I get from Spotlight's "Assets" folder are around 460-470kB. Do you edit these pictures or do you find better quality somewhere? I haven't noticed any real visual difference when comparing same image that I've copied from "Assets" vs same image from you that is larger in size, but I'm still curious :)

    I don't edit anything, but for some reason a few of the recent additions were larger in size. They are still 1920 x 1080 resolution like the others but are larger for an unknown reason.
    Their size is the same as when I found them in my Assets folder

    Yeah, I took a note last several days and noticed the same. Roughly 1 out of 5 pictures from Assets folder would be larger (1.5MB+) while others are in the range of 460-480kb. Weird. But thanks for confirming anyway :)

    Also, as a side note - new images again in my OneDrive ( http://1drv.ms/1OyEz2B ). Yeah, I can finally post a link! :)

    Is there anywhere that gives credits for the photos or that identifies locations? One of the industrial photos reminds me of a place I used to work (sure it isn't the same place, just similar) and I'd like to know where it is.

    Gorgeous collection! I would like to help -- how are you guys obtaining these? Are they available in 4K resolution?
    12-08-2015 08:08 PM

    they are by default in 1920*1080, i don't think you will get larger resolutions if you have a 4K screen but i don't know that for a fact.
    The files are in C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets - just add .jpg at the end to view the pictures.

    Hey Guys, the images are great but I am having a hard time downloading from onedrive due to low internet speeds... and the fact that onedrive kind of sucks. Can someone please place the collection in a google drive or dropbox folder.

    I'm looking for the new spotlight lockscreen of the snowman wearing headphones. I believe it might be a IHeartRadio ad, but regardless, I can't find it online anywhere to use as wallpaper. Thank you!

    Hi guys!

    Enough the hassle with the manual searching and renaming the pictures!
    I've made an app with let's you easily search and download the Windows Spotlight Wallpapers in Full HD!

    Heres the store link to my app named "SpotBright": http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=OdCSI6Sz

    I've done this app yesterday night and haven't tested it thoroughly over multiple days or weeks on different devices or in different regions - so it might be possible that it stops working, but I dont hope so. If all stays how it should, I will very likely implement additional features like Live Tile or wallpaper/lockscreen picture rotation things or even implement a behaviour that is similar to the one of Windows Spotlight itself.

    Let me know what you think of the app and have a wonderful day! :)

    Great app! Although I'm a little unclear how it works. Where does SpotBright look when you choose "fast search" or "in-depth search"?

    Also, it would be nice if there were a way to choose your save location (e.g. locally in your wallpapers folder, or online only in OneDrive, etc.). But this app is really helpful so far. Thanks Tipako!

    Hi Ethan,
    great to hear you like it :)

    It uses the same Web API as Micorosft does in their Spotlight app.
    There will be a option to pick the download folder with the next version ;)

    Thank you for posting your links to all the lost spotlight photos. I can't access the Crise links but the QuentinJ links work perfectly and have all the ones I was looking for.

    Hey Tipako,

    Great to see updates to SpotBright coming every day. I have it installed on W10 Desktop (Surface) and W10 Mobile (Lumia 950XL).

    One thing I noticed is that on W10 Mobile, when you select "choose download location", it doesn't let you choose a folder in OneDrive. The only options are "This Device" and "SD Card". It's unfortunate that OneDrive isn't an option, because I already have a "SpotBright" folder in my OneDrive where desktop SpotBright is saving pictures. Any chance you can fix this?

    Thanks!

    I'm afraid, it's not possible to select the OneDrive folder on Mobile because OneDrive isn't integrated in the folder structure as it is on Desktop. On W10 Mobile, der is no OneDrive folder, it's all encapsulated in the OneDrive app...

    Thanks for your response Tipako!

    It's strange, because in some apps the file picker lets you select OneDrive as an option. For example, these are all the options offered to you (including OneDrive) when you choose an attachment in Outlook Mail:

    wp_ss_20160116_0002.jpg

    and also in WhatsApp:

    wp_ss_20160116_0003.jpg

    However SpotBright only gives us the options "This Device" and "SD Card":

    wp_ss_20160116_0001.jpg

    I don't understand why other apps (Outlook Mail, WhatsApp, etc.) have access to more locations than SpotBright. Thanks again for your reply!

    My first guess would be, this is possible in those apps because they need reading access and want to pick a file.
    In Spotbright I need writing access and want to pick a folder.
    But I will have another look into it!

    @tipako - nice app, thanks :) Too bad you have to pay for notifications :P But I guess eveyone needs to make a living ;)

    I do have a question. Are you people still getting new images or not? My PC did not get any new images since New Year, so a bit over a month now. I keep checking manually, but nothing. I'll try now with SpotBright, just downloaded everything (276 pics) and will re-check in a week or so, but it's weird I always got few new ones each week, and now nothing for 5 full weeks, entering 6th today...

    New pictures popped at January, 16th the last time. I have no idea in which intervals Microsoft is updating the pictures, could be a month, could be 6 months...
