Web Image Collector is a fairly intuitive program designed to find and download pictures from web sites, as the name suggests. It targets users of any level of experience.
The GUI of the application is represented by a standard window. So, you can start a new project by following several steps in a user-friendly wizard.
So, you can select a web site to search or the entire web, specify how to follow page and image links (e.g. with or to any web site), establish the minimum image width and height, as well as write account credentials if they are required by the web site in question.
Once you pick the output directory and collection name, you can proceed with the scanning procedure. All resulted images can be shown as thumbnails in the main application window. These items can be copied, moved, deleted or sent via email.
More options can be configured from the Settings panel. For instance, you can make the tool skip duplicate images, configure custom HTTP request headers, as well as create a URL inclusion or exclusion list.
Web Image Collector uses a moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, has a good response time, includes a thorough help file, and takes a reasonable amount of time to complete a scanning job, depending on the size of the web site. We have not encountered any issues throughout our evaluation; the utility did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its intuitive layout, less experienced users can quickly get familiarized with Web Image Collector's options.
