User guide

theVideoGameGallery.com is a video game image repository, containing thousands of video game images.

This page is a little guide to how the site works, divided in small sections with basic information.

Categories

All images are categorized into five different categories:

  • Wallpapers All images here have specific aspect ratios so they can be used as backgrounds for different screens.
  • Artwork Scans or high resolution images that do not belong in the wallpaper section.
  • Screenshots Actual game play screenshots.
  • Covers High resolution scans from game cases
  • Others Any other images that do not belong to any other category.

Content Filter

In addition to using categories, all images are also classified using a two level filter system.
Safe or Adult. By default, only safe images are displayed; To see the other images you must first register and then update your settings.

Stars and Hearts

Stars determine the score of an image. By giving stars you are showing your support for the image and increasing its score.

Hearts are used to mark images as favorites. Any image you mark with a heart will be added to your favorites collection.
