A great little tool for extracting images from websites and downloading them to your hard drive
PicPluck is a great little tool for extracting images from websites and downloading them to your hard drive.
Type in the base URL, check that the options you want are selected, and click on the Go button. Simple. PicPluck will squirrel down as many levels as you specify – the default is one level below the main URL you entered – and you can limit the images to those on the one domain (again, the default). You specify that the program only get either GIFs or JPGs, there are proxy facilities if you need to use them, you can limit the minimum image size grabbed, etc.
The only help is on-line but, in truth, none is needed – everything is so easy to use, and the options so obvious, that you will be using this program within seconds of first loading it.
Advertiser supported (it pulls down ads from the Net), we were less impressed with the constant nagging to `update` to the advertiser-free version. At least the splash screen nag should have a disabling feature as there is a permanent reminder on the main screen. However, every time you load this program you have to choose whether to register it or to continue unregistered (and therefore accept the advertising).
