bunch of images from a website

Posted:
in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Do I remember incorrectly, or is there a function in either Safari or iPhoto which Steve showed off a few years ago...



You could find a picture from a website, and then instruct the app to download all the other images from the website, or at least the same page or something. I am really foggy on the details right now.



I have a friend with a website of a bunch of us partying at a club, and I don't really want to have to traverse his public_html directory to find where he put all the photos.



Any help is appreciated.

    Doesn't sound like something Apple would make. Try www.macdownload.com

    As far as I recall, this was from the Automator demo given at the WWDC'04 keynote.

    Well, then I guess the next question is: Is anyone good at automator and can do that? I haven't touched it.

    You could "wget" or "curl" said directory from terminal to grab the whole substructure...



    Maybe somebody has put a nice GUI on the unix versions of wget or curl ?



    I'd guess the demo (Automator) you saw referenced something like this.

    How could you - unless you are a developer or got your copy of the Tiger Developer Preview from some dark sources... it will be released mid-year.

    If the images are named sequentially, you could make a list in Excel or another spreadsheet (if there are a lot) or a text app if that's all you have (but it's harder to iterate though the numbers by hand).



    So make a list like so:

    http://www.dshjfdsfsdgrfgs.com/images/001.jpg

    http://www.dshjfdsfsdgrfgs.com/images/002.jpg

    http://www.dshjfdsfsdgrfgs.com/images/003.jpg

    http://www.dshjfdsfsdgrfgs.com/images/004.jpg

    http://www.dshjfdsfsdgrfgs.com/images/005.jpg



    Copy the list to the clipboard and activate Safari's Downloads window and just Paste.



    That'll download them all to the download folder you have set for Safari.

    Use firefox together with the "down them all" extension (search on mozilla update)

    (almost) All great input. Thanks. I will try them all when I get home. Until then, which of these would give me the option to specify something like - Get the .jpg's in the directory, unless they have the word thumb in them.



    Once again, thanks in advance.
