Description
=======================================================================
This is a simple mod. 

I found the image section of Nexus interesting but somehow lacking real purpose, the mod aims to change that: now you can utilize Nexus user-photos in-

game as a background.  I'll upload best selected photos that can be used in Skyrim or/and Enderal (they are fully randomized). Each release will have a

specified date of selection (time periods); in separate downloads to keep it clean. Don't be surprised to find your own photos some day.

=======================================================================
But what is this anyway?
=======================================================================

This is a randomizer with up to 20 photos (numbers may vary) selected in a specific time period from the image section of Nexus, simple: you load Skyrim

and you find a different player background. As the name says it will randomly select user photos taken straight from nexus pages. Installation instruction

can't be easier: drop all in data folder. This is super compatible since almost every wallpaper is made for randomizer.

=======================================================================
Time periods?
=======================================================================

For now the textures are  taken from months september/october, I am scouring the nexus image section to have a release  so this mod is an ongoing project and the resources seem infinite.

=======================================================================
How is it done technically
=======================================================================

This is ridiculously simple,  the hardest part is to get permits fast from a vast number of users in order to upload in time (call me a permit spammer). 
I made a  template, 100% compliant with SKSE plugin that is called ''randomizer'' by  hellstorm102, to it I add resized images so I can operate fast and efficiently. There are no other edits on the images as to retain their vanilla properties. The only change is the resolution, but up to a certain extent, so there might be smaller photos but with acceptable pixel quality. 100% match is impossible, I'd rather select good or/and interesting pictures than perfect fits/native resolutions. There are obvious cons of this mod but at the same time pictures are extremely varied and so the effect is unpredictable.. and so fun. 

Please if you find time give necessary credits to hellstorm102 and his randomizer mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/3708/? and his mesh.
