    So my friend posted all these photos from our trip to Spain on Webshots.com. Downloading them one-by-one is a pain. Is there any way to download all of them at once? I thought about WebGrabber, but that hasn't worked well in the past. Perhaps it would be in IE's cache if I just let them all go through a slideshow? How would I find the cache?

    Do you have Tiger? If so you could set up a simple Automator workflow to do it.

    Oh, and can I recommend not using Internet Explorer for Mac. :)

    By the way, I'm not sure how helpful this is, but if there's a large number of photos I want/need from a site, I just drag them to the desktop. Of course, this won't help if there are hundreds. :(

    Yup - a simple workflow like this should suffice:

    If you are using Firefox, there is an extension called "Download-Them-All" it can filter by images, pdf's, movies, music, or any user defined extension. The automator thing will probably work too.
