    Hi, I have been asked to do a Slideshow of a bunch of pictures from our local newspaper's website. When I go to the site I can't just download the pics form the site, I can do a screenshot of the pictures manually but there are over 250 pictures in the set and it will take forever to do each one individually. I was wondering if anyone knows of an application that will let me either snap a shot of just one part of the screen or set a standard size to take each shot. The pictures are all consistant sizes in either portrait or landscape if that helps. I found SnapzPro but haven't tried it out yet.

    Any help would be greatly appriciated.

    What happens if you try to drag the photo out of Safari to the Desktop?

    Whenever I try to drag the images out of Safari (or Firefox) I just get a blank image called overlay.gif. I'm sure that this is just the newspaper's way of protecting their images but they want $2 for a 3x3.5 print and I don't need any kind of real quility for a slide show.

    If you're using firefox, download the extension 'Downthemall!' and it should give you a list of all the files found on a page.

    Or just look at the source code, and find where the files are kept on the server.

    If you post a link to the site, I'm sure we'll be able to see what the problem is.

    Have you tried contacting the local paper to request they provide you the photos?

    Looking at the site, the best thing to do would be to contact the newspaper and ask them.

    The images are stored in

    with one being:

    You could either go through all the images and find where it's stored, email each one to yourself or ask the newspaper.

    Saving all the images on the thumbnail page (your link) wouldn't be the best idea as they all seem to be scaled down versions of the real thing.
