Identifying SCREENSAVER images

I need help identifying a location in a Comcast screensaver image. 

 

THEPLACE.jpgWHERE IS THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE?!?

I've done enough research on this to know there are a *lot* of people who would like to know details about the xfinity screensaver. What would it hurt to put up a link where we can have this information? Especially because there are so many who are curious about a variety of images. Obviously, whoever chooses these things has wonderful taste. If they could post these on a Facebook page, or a web page, it would be really great!

I hope someone can help me here! 

Thanks!

Some people have had luck with a google picture search.

Re: Identifying SCREENSAVER images

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried Google Image Search AND Tineye, with zero results. I'm going to try to see if I can get a better picture. But so far, nothing. Nothing at all. I'm frustrated because I know from exploring the net that there are LOTS of people who want to know details and locations of images that appear in the screensaver. ARgh. Anyhow, thank you so much for taking the time to respond.

Re: Identifying SCREENSAVER images

I believe xfinity or comcast should tag each image with its location.  How hard could that

be?

Most of the pictures you’re looking at are of New Zealand. Particularly the one with blue water and small church is Lake Tekapo. I was just there. Another is the road to Milford sound.

It is yet another example of the poor customer support xfinity/Comcast provide.  Yes, how hard is it to post the identification of the images...it’s not.  Even big old Apple does that for their screensaver images on AppleTV.  This request has been out there for a few years by my research.  Something an intern could do.

Ella,

 

I get the impression that most customers simply want to know the location. Most could care a less about who provided the picture.

@RickGr4 - The source that supplies pictures has all the details including the location as well. I passed the feedback asking to provide more information and hopefully, it will change in the near future.

Re: Identifying SCREENSAVER images

Many of us couch potatoes would like to know the locations of the photo screen savers. The location could be placed on the top or bottom of each screen saver. Personally, I am not asking for the photographer just the location. I think some wanted to know photographers, also. 

Thank you,

This was posted on a public forum. I don’t understand the comment from a Comcast employee.

Re: Identifying SCREENSAVER images

I want to thank the folks at Xfinity for labeling the screensaver pictures.  I know many of us have wanted this, and you did it and that's just fabulous.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

Was pleasant surprised to notice that location descriptions have been added in the bottom right corner of the images.  Thank you Comcast!

I’m in the Denver area and just tonight (July 13) noticed the screensaver images now show location identity. Glad to see this and hope they keep this feature. In the past there were some astonishing pictures I always wondered about.

ComcastAmira,

Thanks so much for the update on identifying the screensaver locations in the corner of the shot!  I haven’t seen it yet, but my husband has. This is great that we will now know locations of beautiful places that we might want to visit. I just saw one from Yellowstone; this is great!

Thanks,

Sheena

You’ll be happy to know that they recently added locations to all the photos in a daily update.  It’s fantastic.

Re: Identifying SCREENSAVER images

They’ve added all the locations in the last few days.  Happy viewing.

Re: Identifying SCREENSAVER images

I’d like to give a belated thanks to the Comcast team for adding the meta-data on the images in the screensaver. I would also encourage you to create a page on your website with links to all the pictures you use on the screensaver and any additional information that’s available that you don’t want to put on the screen.
