I'm looking for software that will recursively crawl a website to download all of the images from the entire website. (Not just from a single webpage.)

To illustrate:

If the site is www.example.com the program should download all images that it finds on www.example.com. It should also follow any links that it finds on www.example.com and continue doing this to download all images from www.example.com/*. It should categorically ignore any links that lead off of www.example.com, but not links such as images.example.com/picture.jpg.

The program must be free but not necessarily open source.

The program should run on Windows.

  • Software for AmigaOS OK – or do you prefer Atari TOS? ;) – Izzy Apr 12 '16 at 6:09
  • Should it crawl URLs like www.example.com/page.php?id=4875 or www.example.com/post.php?name=ibid ? – Nicolas Raoul Apr 12 '16 at 6:19
  • @NicolasRaoul - Not so sure what those are. I've never seen them on the site in question, so I'd assume no. The only "?" modifiers I've seen there are cropping the images (which I would prefer removed, as I want the full size image.) – user22923 Apr 12 '16 at 7:13

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

For mirroring only images you need to set scan rules properly.

Limit external depth download and ensure that you have appropriate image filters (Options > Scan rules). The following will accept any images found even if they are linked from other servers:

 +*.gif +*.jpg +*.png +*.bmp  
  • Only problem is that all of the links to imageson the site include query strings to crop and shrink the pictures. I want the full size pictures. Is there a way to use httrack to ignore query strings when downloading? – user22923 Apr 15 '16 at 17:10

Download them all, is an add-on for Firefox that can allow you to download anything (you can filter for just images) from a selected webpage
