When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo Show Photographs "Art"
« on: September 06, 2021, 06:01:32 am »
I have "Art" selected  for the "Clock & Photo Display" choice on my Echo Show and love the works that are displayed.
How can I find the titles of the pictures that are shown?
I've searched a number of times (although not here) without success for the answer to this.
Thanks in advance,
Peter

Have you tried asking Alexa "Who is the arttists and what is the name of this "Painting" or whatever you suspect it is... photo, etc...????

My Alexa environment includes :
1 Full Sized Echo
3 Echo Dots 2nd gen
2 Echo Dot 3rd gen, One with Clock
1 Echo Spot
Several Hue Lights with a single bridge
5 Fire Tablets (1 as a control panel in Kitchen)
One Ring Doorbell Pro
Also 4 cell phones with Alexa app installed!
You should see My Apple Device List!

Amazon has several backgrounds that you can use for your clock/home background. Unfortunately they don't say artist's name or where it came from. I suggest taking a picture of it from your phone and then do a Google image search with that picture and see what you come up with. I'm guessing that it's probably something that Amazon created internally and corporate owned, so it's unlikely to have an artist name.

Thanks, but no. As I had already discovered, that one's a dead end. :-(

The pictures are mostly classic 19th century style works, so I'm guessing that they're licensed by the Rijksmuseum or similar.
Still, your suggestion re. Google image search is a good one, and I'll put it to the test.
Thanks!

Yes, that works and, yes, my guess that they - or at least those I've tested - are from the Rijksmuseum collection is also correct!
Thanks again! :-)
