I want to download around 500 photos from a user account on yfrog.com. The photos are located under the URL in the following format:

http://yfrog.com/user/<username>/photos

Is there a free downloader that can mass download all pictures in that gallery? I tried the trial version of "Bulk Image Downloader" but it couldn't locate the photos.

What is the exact link for the pictures? –  soandos Aug 31 '11 at 2:20
    
It's a gallery of a friend of mine. I'd better not give the link. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Sep 3 '11 at 14:41

1 Answer 1

You can use wget + 'for' command + batch file

1) Download wget (Google, "wget.exe for windows")

2) Create new text file download.cmd:

@echo off
set LIST=1 2 3
set LIST=%LIST% 4 5 6
for %i in (%LIST%) do (
    wget.exe http://yfrog.com/user/aaa/photos/%i.jpg
)

4) Edit download.cmd to your liking. Of course you need to get list of image ids somewhere (1 2 3 4 5 6 in this example), but I believe it's beyond the scope of the question.

5) Save download.cmd to the same folder as wget.exe and run it.

Thanks for the answer. Getting the list of image IDs is crucial and the core of my question. I need a total solution which can acquire the image IDs automatically. If I could do that, I wouldn't ask this question. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Nov 13 '11 at 12:31
