Amazon Images

Categories: [ IT ]

In Abusing Amazon images you learn how to abuse Amazon images, creating images of an Amazon product with whatever tag overlaid on it (such as a “99% off” bullet).

But the interesting part is that you can get images in any format with the following syntax: http://ecw.images-amazon.com/images/P/ASIN.01.size_info.jpg .

Useful values for size info are:

  • THUMBZZZ for thumbnail
  • TZZZZZZZ for medium-size
  • nothing for default size
  • L, LZ or LZZ for large
  • AAxx, xx is the size of the largest dimension
  • SXxx, xx is the width
  • XYxx, xx is the height
  • SSxx, xx is the size of width and height (image is padded with white)

Plenty of other features are available, I now use SSxx for the blog so that I can add size/height attributes to the IMG elements in the HTML and WAP 2.0 versions.
