Bing Image Downloader

AppVeyor branch Nuget GitHub release (latest by date) GitHub issues

Simple command line application which will retrive the latest set of Bing images.

Images are downloaded from Bing directly at: http://www.bing.com/HPImageArchive.aspx?format=xml&idx=0&n=8&mkt={Culture} E.g. http://www.bing.com/HPImageArchive.aspx?format=xml&idx=20&n=8&mkt=en-GB

The app will attempt to use every known culture code to get images.

This does result in a lot of duplicate URLs, but the app is also designed to prevent this causing issues!
