0Images by Name Studios LogoResurrected: Collaborative ImagesByName Project

With the sad loss of TheHTPC.net there no longer appears to be a home for the Col­lab­or­at­ive Images­By­Name Pro­ject (know as CiP or IBN at vari­ous times).  Whilst devel­op­ment on these seems to have hal­ted some time back, the resources them­selves are still sub­stan­tial and will be sorely missed.  As I still had down­loaded cop­ies avail­able, and could­n’t find them any­where else of the net, I’ve decided to host them here so that oth­ers may con­tin­ue to enjoy the pre­vi­ous hard work inves­ted in cre­at­ing them.

Update: TheHTPC.net is back.  Hav­ing cre­ated mir­rors we’ll leave them intact, but recom­mend you head to theHTPC.net for the latest versions

I don’t know if there are new­er ways of provid­ing the same func­tion­al­ity — e.g. via a plu­gin which down­loads images in real­time, but hav­ing such a large loc­ally cached resource already avail­able is well worth­while.  If it proves pop­u­lar we’ll look to find a way to rein­state devel­op­ment.  In the mean­time I have recom­pressed all of the PNGs with PNG­Gaunt­let, and have rezipped the archives into 7zip archives with ultra com­pres­sion to save a bit of space.

You can find links on [int­link id=“741” type=“page”]the down­loads page[/intlink] to most (but not all) of the resources that used to be on TheHTPC.net as detailed below

  • People Wave 1
  • 3D Box­set Cov­ers 2.0
  • Ori­gin­al Stu­dio Base Images (15-Jan-2010)
  • Rom­in­at­or Stu­dio Logos 3.0
  • Chip Stu­dio Logos 1.0
  • Techols Movie & TV Rat­ings 3.0

If you have any oth­er col­lec­tions please get in touch with links, or ideally, to pass them on so I can host them with the ones above.  If you are a cre­at­or / co-cre­at­or of any of the col­lec­tions and have any issues with me provid­ing a link please get in touch — it is not my inten­tion to tread on any­one’s toes.
