I have a image blog at, similar to tumblr, where I post images I find on the net for my friends. But I also would like to have a local copy of all the images on my mac to use as wallpapers etc. I would download them via hand, but it is to cumbersome as I sometimes several dozen pictures a day. Do you know any software or service, that could help me?

I tried Automatic by Coding Curious, but it just stopped downloading after the first 'batch'. I contacted the programmer with the logs, but he couldn't help me. I also archive the blog in google reader which gets all images, but I don't know how to get them out of there.

Thank you

IMO, If the person who programmed the application could not help you, I would not trust the application. – ricbax Nov 26 '09 at 20:27
You should give more specs: what platform do you use for blogging? do you have FTP or SSH access to the server hosting it? How do you insert pictures on the blog? Do they simply get put in a directory or there is a logic you must follow for the software to recognise them? What operating system is being used for your server? Etc... – mac Nov 26 '09 at 20:44
the blog is hosted at – Framester Nov 27 '09 at 10:06

Use Httrack. You can easily filter by image types if you only want the images.
