I've played around with some skins already and noticed some views, such as Cover Wrap, or even Poster, can create a fairly large image per item which you can view, so I figure it cannot be too tough to include a Fullscreen View as well.
That would be what is needed to make any search turn up results in fullscreen. Hopefully this will come to play soon.
There actually is no longer an API, I now have to scrape the search results.
Also I'm not sure what your are describing here. You can still get a fullscreen view of the image by finding the correct image from the list of page images that you get when you click on the result. The problem is that I cannot determine in code which image on the page is correct, and that is the reason I can't display it fullscreen automatically.
Incidentally, I noticed error messages when testing, so obviously the addon is in need of some love
Sorry for the confusion. What I meant to say is to get skin developers to include a Fullscreen view as one of the views possible in their respective skins. if this were to happen, your addon would work perfect, even as it is. If so, nothing would be need to be done on your end; only on theirs.
For example, when using your addon, on whatever skin I'm on, I can always change the view to whatever one I want. The Google Image results that are on the screen after a search through your addon get shown in whatever view I have set. Some make the results huge, some make them super small, some medium-sized, and etc. Now, if there was just a view that could make each result as a fullscreen image, then it would be great.
Hope that makes more sense. The idea really has nothing to do with your addon. If I could get a fullscreen view option in a theme I could set your addon's home page to this new fullscreen view option, and get fullscreen images for each result. The same could be said for other picture addons as well. Or really, any addons which have an image/poster/whatever to display.
Finally, as for your comment above, I know I could get the fullscreen image of a particular result just by clicking it, and getting into its submenu list of images found on that particular website. But to change to another image, I would have to press 'back' and then go to another one, click it, and then do the same over and over to see all the images that a random search in your addon provided. Hence the reason why a simple fullscreen view in a skin would negate the need to even click a specific result, since all the images found in the search results are fullscreen to begin with.
Anyway, thanks for the updates. Look forward to any updates you may do to this. I'll be honest and say I haven't used your addon much, but it was mainly a result of not having an easy way to slideshow results. Hope to use more, though, as I see it a great thing to play around with and share stuff on Google.
