    I found an application called "Speed Download" that makes is really easily to download stuff. For example, if provided a list of 200 image urls I can drop those into "Speed Download" and download all of them to a certain folder. (this comes in handy for my job)

    I'm looking for an application that can take this a step further: I'd like to be able to specify the list of 200 image urls in one column, and the new file names in a second column. (so i can assign a new image name to each of the images)

    Anyone know of some sort of imaging/downloading application that would be good at this?? :confused:

    Not sure if there's a program to do that but you could probably do it with an apple script and folder actions.

    Do the names of the images have to correspond to the URL you download them from?

    thanks for your reply...

    no.

    website.com/image.jpg could be downloaded as just image.com.

    or, ideally, i could have the script re-name the image to something newly specified, such as newimage.com
