Download images from web-albums
(05-07-2006) PicDownloader is now online at softpedia.com. Check it out!
(08-06-2006) PicDownloader v1.0 has recently been completed. The program can be downloaded from here.
Before running the program you need to make sure that you have installed Microsoft .NET 2 framework on your system. Please keep in mind that this is beta software, so it might not work! Try it with the www.seriouswheels.com site. You can download it from here.
The program is designed to perform in the following way:
- Load a web page that contains thumbnails of various images.
- Investigate which of the thumbnails refer to images and download them.
- Allow the user to choose which images to download.
- Download the specified images.
Unfortunately internet image albums are not a standardized thing. In the short time that took me to make this program I discovered that there are sites where the thumbnails are linked with the images. However there are other sites where the thumbnails link to other html pages that host the images. This is the most difficult case to handle since many images may be present on these target images.
