FRSPhotoGrabber is a software tool that makes it easy to download sequentially-numbered image files from a web site. Note that whether or not you are allowed to download such files is a legal issue between you and that web site's owner.

Why use FRSPhotoGrabber?

Sometimes you come across an image/photo file on a web site and you want to download it for your own personal use. For example, it may be one of a set of photos that show you how to install or repair something. Usually, the web site owner will name such files in a sequential manner (e.g. "Photo1.jpg", "Photo2.jpg", "Photo3.jpg", etc.). Downloading each of those files manually is a bit tedious. If you can determine that the only difference between the file names is the number at the end of the file name, FRSPhotoGrabber can download them all for you automatically.

How Do I Use FRSPhotoGrabber?

(fig. 1: downloading files)

You need to supply the web site address of where the file or files are to be found, select the folder on your computer to where you would like to download those files, and then specify the first and last names of the files to attempt to download. You can guess at the sequential file names, because FRSPhotoGrabber will only download those files it found on the web site's server, and notify you of the ones it didn't find.

When you press the Download button, the downloading will commence, if the files exist. This is shown in figure 1. As each is downloaded, the file is selected and shown in a small preview window.

Note that it is entirely possible that a file you specify to have FRSPhotoGrabber download could contain viruses, malware, adware, or other nasties. Although this is rare with image files, it is still a possibility, so you are forewarned. Use FRSPhotoGrabber with caution and only on reputable web sites. And, be sure that your anti-virus software is always up to date.

How Do I Get the Latest Version?

For free applications we do not support automatic upgrading from within the application. We, therefore, recommend that you check our News page (see above) from time to time to see if we have released a new version of FRSPhotoGrabber. The application is fairly stable in the feature set we want to include in it, so upgrades shouldn't happen very often. If a new version is made available, simply download it via the "Download" tab above. You can safely install over top of the previous installation, as it will preserve your application settings.
