I am looking for an application that when given a website it rips/downloads all the pictures of a certain size or type. Anyone knows an app that does this?

There's an extension in FireFox called DownThemAll. it filters the links according to what you want (pics, video, mp3, whatever)

It should help you.

I was thinking more along the lines of a stand alone program that would automatically traverse through the whole site structure and download only certain file types and sizes...I used to use a program like this under windows and would like to find one to do the same under os x

and I tried using automator and this would work however im unable to loop through the necessary range of urls to grab all the images...

like for a specific celebrity/model the format of the link where the images are store is

http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/name/number/resolution/

and i need the number to loop and try each link ranging from 1 - 40000 and if it fails on a certain link, continue on to the next...anyone know how to do this with automator or maybe and applescript combined with automator?

Ampd...I'm betting the reason you havent' gotten a response is b/c there doesn't appear to be any real easy way to do that. I was checking out some of the movie wallpaper (would love to get that Spider-Man 3 WP in 1280x800), and I can't tell anyway to get automator to do that (or even any of the other suggestions on here).

After some time playing with automator i actually produced a working workflow which acomplishes this to a degree...so im happy...

Could you share that Automator workflow? I'm looking for something that will pick up files about two clicks away (or two links deep). have you figured out how to do that?
