Testimonials

Our users really love BID - we know because they've told us! Here are just a few examples of  the unsolicited feedback we've received.

Just a note to tell you how much I rely on your software to do my job. As an artist I'm constantly seeking reference material, and while the internet is teeming with images, it can get darn monotonous saving images one by one. With BID I save literally hours, doing in a minute what used to take all day. I've tried every image downloading solution there is, and every single one was a let down except BID. No doubt if I were more familiar with scripting I could get more from some of the other titles, but like 99% of the population I don't want to have to learn a bunch of stuff, I just want to get the largest amount of material in the shortest time. I must admit, I do wish there was a version for the Mac, because I can find nothing on that platform that comes close to doing what BID does, and again, I've tried them all, in fact its the one area where I have no option but to use my PC to get results, if I'm surfing on the Mac and find a site with good images, I'm forced to send the URL to the PC and use BID to grab the images. Anyway, thanks again for the most useful piece of software I ever bought, it's a lifesaver. - (Michael Oberhofer, www.michaeloberhofer.com )

I enjoy collecting, organizing and editing photos. So you can imagine I have used almost every software option available for each of these categories. When it comes to the collecting/organizing category, your software is unambiguously the best option on the market. It does exactly what I tell it to do, and it does it well. I am very pleased with my purchase. - (Aaron, US) 

I recently downloaded your trial copy of the image downloader and was very impressed. I have tried others but this blew them out of the water. You made it simple to use and very intuitive. It even knows to change file names! It was well worth the price. I just wanted you to know that I was so satisfied by the trial, I purchased the key the same day. Thank you for providing such a functional trial as well, it shows confidence in your products ability to sell itself. Keep up the good work, I'll check your site often to see what other great stuff you have come up with! - (Nathan)

In all honesty, yours is the first piece of software that I've paid for in years. Why? Cause it does exactly what I wanted it to AND at a very reasonable price!  - (Reb)

BID is the best downloader by far among it's competitors . Small - Fast - Accurate (does not collect garbage). - (Micke)

Hey I just wanted to day I really love your product. I tried a few other image downloaders and none of them really seemed to work. I downloaded this and was blown away by how quickly I was downloading loads of images! - (Brodyn)

I have not regretted paying for your software (I have never paid for software before) for these reasons: it's reliable, great support when I needed it and most importantly it's reasonably priced with genuine beneficial UPDATES! It's great to see things like support for other image sites and auto loading of multiple forum pages - can't wait to see what else you will add! - (Firas)

Suppose you've come across a thumbnailed web gallery full of beautiful high quality pictures that you just have to download and add to your collection. But clicking on each thumbnail to get to the full sized image will take ages - plus you'll probably have to battle popups and adverts if the images are hosted on a free image hosting site! Some web hosts even scramble the image filenames, while others are so unreliable that you end up clicking Refresh over and over until the image finally loads!! So what do you do?

 

Well, you've found the solution! Bulk Image Downloader (BID) is a specialized image downloading tool that can save you hours of tedious manual work. BID is so easy to set up and use that you just won't believe how quickly you'll have it downloading full sized images from almost any thumbnailed web gallery you throw at it. Its built in image detection technology can handle image hosts that most other conventional web downloaders can't! It will even detect corrupt and partially downloaded images and automatically retry for you. All your images will be downloaded without fail.

 

Important information for Windows Vista users

  • TCP/IP Window Scaling Issues
    An incompatibility exists between Vista's TCP/IP Window Scaling feature and some network hardware (such as certain types of router). This may cause BID and other programs that access the internet to "freeze" or "hang up" when they try to download from the internet. You may also experience slow browsing, broken downloads and other odd problems when accessing the internet. If you find that the BID window does not appear when you start it but bid.exe appears in your task manager list then you may have this problem. To solve it TCP/IP Window Scaling must be disabled.

    To disable Vista TCP/IP Window Scaling do the following:
    1. Log into Windows Vista as an administrator user
    2. Start Command Prompt (located in Start - All Programs - Accessories)
    3. Type in the following command and press enter:
             netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
    4. Restart your PC

How to use it

For a comprehensive guide to using BID please read the BID User's Guide .

 

If the current web page you're viewing contains a thumbnailed image gallery simply right click inside the window and select "Open current page with Bulk Image Downloader". Alternatively if the page contains links to thumbnailed image galleries right click on one of the links and select "Open link target with Bulk Image Downloader". Either of these actions will launch BID and cause it to immediately scan the page or link for downloable images. Alternatively start BID manually and copy and paste  the URL of the web page containing the images into the "URL to page containing links" edit box. Click on "Scan URL for images" to bring up a list of images that B.I.D. is capable of downloading.

 

Once BID has presented you with a list of images select the ones you don't want and press the Delete key to remove them from the list. You can select multiple images by holding down the Ctrl key while clicking with the mouse.

 

Double click on an image to display the full sized thumbnail. Double click the thumbnail image to download and display the full sized image.

 

Select a download folder and then click on "Download files" to begin downloading the images.

 

Click on "Save Batch" to save the download links to a text file. These ".bidlist" saved files can be loaded into B.I.D. by clicking on the "Load Batch/Scan links from file" button.

 

To create a list from multiple sources check the "Append to existing links" checkbox. Links will now be appended to the list instead of replacing the existing list when a URL is scanned or a file is loaded.

 

Some image hosts scramble the image filenames. In such a case you can select the "Generate Filenames" checkbox and type in an image prefix. Images will be saved as "PREFIXnnn.jpg" where nnn is the image's sequence number on the list. 

 

The "Thumbnails" checkbox toggles the display of image thumbnails within the list.

 

If "Close when download complete" is selected, B.I.D. will close automatically after the last image in the list has been downloaded.

 

Click on "Add to Queue" to have the current batch saved and sent to the Queue Manager.
