Counting on my flist again... - One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?

Counting on my flist again...
Can anyone suggest an easy-to-understand-and-use, (preferably free) "download manager"? I'm looking for something that I can use on a webpage "gallery" that will download all the images without having to click on each thumbnail. That's what the managers do, right?

You guys are always such great help, so I thought I'd ask the experts first.

*hugs*

Firefox has an add-on called DownThemAll try that.

If you don't have Firefox I would definitely recommend it. I'm so in love with it!

I have firefox and I tried dl'ing it, but I couldn't understand it well enough to figure out what it was doing. Call me dumb. And the other one they had that everyone raves about is "Flash-Got" and it says I need a manager. *sigh*

I've tried 2 extensions and I can't make heads or tails out of either. I'm ready to scream!

Yep, I'd definitely have to go with firefox and downloadthem all. That's what I have, although I don't generally download lots of stuff, so I'm not sure it has the capabilities you're looking for, but yeah.

Hi there! I´ve been using for ages a little program called "Express Web Pictures" . I ´ve got it in full version. Is very easy to use, you just copy and paste an URL of a site or gallery and it will automathically search for the .jpg files that belong to it.
If you want it, I can send it though an e-mail
see you!

That sounds like *exactly* what I'm looking for! Yes, please!

*waves hand* Jumping on the FireFox DownloadHelper. I was confusing to me, too at first, but when I got the hang of it, mostly from asking other people on El-Jay that use it. I find it a bit slow, bit if I have more than 10 pics to download, I just walk away and get a snack or something. *is very impatient*

Thanks honey! I'm pretty impatient too, but I always have 15 things to do at once. ;)

Firefox has batchdownload too.
It works really well for galleries of thumbnails that can be a hassle with downloadthemall
araestel From: araestel Date: December 2nd, 2006 05:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Okay--I'll check it out. *hugs*

Okay--you're smarter than me--how do you get this damn thing to work here: http://www.ka-bloom.org/gallerie/thumbnails.php?album=483

It keeps skipping or cancelling and I'm ready to scream! Help?
causette From: causette Date: December 2nd, 2006 05:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
aaaaaahhhhhh *nods* .php?album... yeah, I hate those!! I mean, how bloody inconsiderate of them not to offer zip files of all these pictures.

I'm afraid the downloadthemall feature wont work on this sort of an album :(
araestel From: araestel Date: December 2nd, 2006 09:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
Figures. *snort* Now I understand why I can't get the damn thing to work.

*hugs* Thanks for helping!
