Web Image Collector is a utility that lets you download photos from websites. The great thing about this app is that it can search and download images automatically. You can carry out searches on image search engines or you can tell the application to download all the pictures from any website. There are very advanced filtering options available so that you can get exactly the pictures you want.

The first step to start downloading images is to select the search type. There are four options available. The first one lets you input the address of a website and download all the pictures linked to it. The second mode lets you download images in sequence. The third one can be used just like you use the Google Images search: you type in a few keywords and the app will look for those images on the Web. Lastly, the fourth option carries out a search in TGP (or thumbnail gallery post) sites.

When you start a search using the first two modes, you can even tell the application to follow links and how many to follow. This is often called depth. The deeper you go, the more links the application will follow to find images. There are other advanced options that let you customize the download process.

Web Image Collector is incredibly useful for users who want to find images on a specific website. The amount of time that can be saved using this to download pictures and then browsing them on your Mac, as opposed to doing that in your web browser, is incredible.
