BID User Guide
BID integrates with Internet Explorer (IE), Opera, FireFox and Google Chrome. IE and Opera integration is automatic, but FireFox and Google Chrome integration requires the installation of a browser extension.
 

BID FireFox Extension

To install the BID FireFox extension please visit the following web page:

http://bulkimagedownloader.com/bid/download/bid-firefox-extension/


Alternatively start FireFox, click on File, then click “Open File”. Browse to the BID installation folder (normally c:\Program Files\Bulk Image Downloader), then select the “FireFox extension folder”.  Select the BulkImageDownloaderx_xx.xpi file and click on “Open”. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.

 

BID Google Chrome Extension

To install the BID Google Chrome extension please visit the following web page:
http://bulkimagedownloader.com/bid/download/bulk-image-downloader-google-chrome-extension/
Note that Google Chrome extensions do not currently allow the Chrome right click context menu to be modified so this extension just adds a BID button to the Chrome tool bar.

Browser Right Click Context Menu Items

The following menu items are added to your browser's right click context menu (obtained by clicking on the web page window with your right mouse button):

 

“Open current page with BID”

Launches BID and automatically loads the current web page.

 

“Enqueue current page with BID”

Adds the current web page to the BID Queue Manager list. If the BID Queue Manager is not active it will be launched automatically.

BID Drop Box

 

The BID Drop box is a floating desktop window that accepts URLs, links and files from your web browser or Windows explorer. Simply drag the URL, link or file into the drop box to have it opened with BID. Double click on the drop box to open a new instance of BID.


The drop box will work with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. URLs and links dragged from Opera will not work.


Move the drop box by clicking and dragging it to its new location.


To drag the browser's current page URL into the drop box click and hold the left mouse button down on the little icon just to the left of the main page URL. Without letting the button go, move the mouse until it's on top of the drop box, then release the mouse button.


For links and files repeat the above process but click on the link or file first instead.


Right click on the drop box to close it or to configure it to start automatically with Windows.


If the drop box is closed it can be re-opened by launching it via the Windows start menu.
