If you are one of these then you might want to read this article about how to download bulk images from any website. I know how much irritating it is to click on every image and then saving it in your machine. Here is what I came up with few extensions for downloading images in bulk.

There are some bulk image downloader software’s  in the market but the downside of them is that you need to purchase them, I mean at least 9 out of 10 software’s are paid. And if you are tight on the budget then you will always consider using free software’s. You need an browser extension which will work same as the paid software might have worked.

These are the percentage of work completed, for e.g. if a page has 100 images and plugin has successfully downloaded 10 images then it will show “10” number.

Now this plugin will start downloading all the images from this web page but unlike the chrome’s extension it will not give you a .zip file option but it will fill your downloads directory.

[UPDATE]

“the Simple Mass Downloader don’t “fill your downloads directory” if you indicate a custom directory using the dedicated text field.”

Aram commented that you can chose a custom download directory in Simple mass downloader.

Also, As Aram suggested there is another Google chrome extension available called Download All images you can download it here.

  1. The simple mass downloader addon has a google chrome version too. It’s not only for images but any type of direct links (unfortunately not embedded video, no Youtube, no SoundCloud…). It has a lot of filtering possibilities (including width/height) and many special features as favorites folders or a rule system for automatically setting of download directories.

    The Download All Images (by Sneeack) has good image detection, but no filtering options. There is another extension named Download All Images (by MeryDev this time) that has filtering possibilities and save as zip features. This addon has a very interesting “deep search” feature, though very slow as all brute force methods.

    No addon has a perfect image detection though. In most cases, these extensions only see thumbnails, not full images. This is understandable, given that many sites try to obfuscate the direct links using all sorts of javascript tricks

    • Agreed to “No addon has a perfect image detection though.”, Thanks for suggesting “Download All Images (by MeryDev)” Addon, I will ad this in the article.

  2. Also, the Simple Mass Downloader don’t “fill your downloads directory” if you indicate a custom directory using the dedicated text field. What’s weird though is that all custom directories are in fact only subdirectories of default download folder… this is a limitation of today’s browsers, they say that for security reasons (but personally do not understand this, the user should be able to set any folder he wants …)
