    I have tried some things like Suck it down, Web Dumper and wget apps and so far nothing is working well.

    Could people list the app they use for grabbing pictures off of websites?

    Thanks

    After a lot of trial with these applications I have found 2 of them that seem to work really well.

    Envision - http://www.opendoor.com/envision/
    Pros:
    Nice setting control
    Easy to use
    Cons:
    Seems a little slow
    Really built to do a 'web slide show'

    HyperImage - http://www.kavasoft.com/HyperImage/
    Pros:
    Fast
    Thorough
    Easy to catch on to
    cons:
    The size filter does not work for "only larger than" pixels
    Starts showing all your pics on your hard drive

    If HyperImage got that filtering thing fixed I would pick that one by far. However envision seems to be able to grab everything I wanted on my tests. I know a lot of people want to rip skins.be but thats not what I am going for so I didn't test that.

    From what I can tell with wget apps, they are pretty much crap for this. None of them grabbed anything I wanted.
