Anyone got any apps/plugins that can download all the images on a webpage?

What sort of resolution do you need. Grab is an option, if you just want copies of the pics.

Automator has an action that will do that.

I think you can even use it to download the enlarged versions of thumbnails

I recommend Blue Crab (http://www.limit-point.com/BlueCrab/BlueCrab.html).

If BlueCrab isn't for you, then the Firefox extension Image Download might be.

Another FireFox option is DownThemAll!

I've found it to be incredibly useful with plenty of options, i.e. you can make it download images and/or movies and/or archives and/or pretty-much-anything-else you specify. You can also make it choose between downloading what's actually visible on the page (embedded) or the objects that are linked to from it (great for downloading all the full size images from a thumbnail gallery page). And that's just the basics...

How about:

Under safari -> file menu

-> save as..
-> Format: Web archive

Saves the whole lot on a page.

Is this what you're after?

I use an Automator script:

The flow is:

1. Get Current Webpage from Safari
2. Get Link URL's from Webpages
3. Filter URL's (whose URL ends with .mpg) - change the .mpg to end with whatever files you are trying to download..
4. Download URL's

Save as Plugin for Finder and it will be available from the scripts menu on the menubar..

Cheers,

Nelson..

you seem happy with nelsons idea, but even simpler is to use site sucker, which does the same type of thing...

Why not just use Firefox's "save page as" feature? No need for plugins that will slow you down, it simply saves the entire page (as 'HMTL, complete") graphics and all.

cos that'll only save the page you're viewing, something like site sucker allows you to only save and download all the jpegs up to ten links deep on the domain you're on..

especially handy when you want to get a bunch of images of, ahem, never mind..

.... and wget from cli can also suck the entire site down to the amount of levels you tell it to follow :)

Will site sucker drill down from the starting page of your choice, or does it insist on starting at the top level of the site?

So I see nobody has raised the ethical implications of stealing all of the images on a website. No better than illegally downloading music.

How would you know that I don't have permission to download them?

you're right. stealing music is far more rewarding.

You download the images to view them when you open up a website.

As for the legalities... It really depends on what's done once the images are downloaded.

It ain't. But it's easy to compile and install :)
curl is in there by default and does pretty much the same thing I think.

SuiteSucker does it all including external style sheets, images all pages. Great tool for looking at a site and check how was put together. (not or ripping of designs!)

I've used Automator for quite a while... for.. um... research purposes *cough*
