This extension allows me to download all the huge image galleries contributors posts with just couple of mouse clicks. It works perfect with imagebam and imagevenue (doesn't seem to work with postimage)
, and generally works on most any webpage you want to get pictures from fast.
How it works?
I highlight any or all thumbnail pictures that I'm interested in a post and right-click & select 'Build Gallery with All Selected Links
New tab opens with all these images (full-sized) in a single column, all opened on this single page (note it can take a short moment to open say 100 images all at once if you select a lot)
I right-click anywhere in the page and select "BatchDownload All Images...
" BatchDownload window opens where I select where to save all these images (and can customize other details if I want to)
I hit 'Start
' and all these images are immediately saved to my hard drive. This all takes just several mouse clicks and couple seconds instead of opening all individual full-sized images one by one and saving again one by one.
Once I have 'em all on my hard drive, I quicky go through 'em and delete any I don't want to keep.
note: to skip downloading any small unwanted pics that the extension might pickup along from image hosting pages, make sure to set the extension to ignore any small-res pics and/or tiny filesized pics
I've been using this extension for couple years and I seriously don't know how I did without it. There are similar batch downloading extensions, some of you may use something similar. Feel free to share what works for you!
