Using PicaLoader as DeviantArt Downloader!

First, save attached .plt file to your computer, run PicaLoader, open your project or create a new project, select main menu->Task->Import Task(s) to import the .plt file.

Then enter the start URL by yourself:
This task template can work for these case:
1. Download pics by DeviantArt browse categories, e.g. you want download all pics in category "traditional/drawings/people", the start URL should be:
http://browse.deviantart.com/traditional/drawings/people/?order=24
2. Download pics by user, just enter the user gallery URL, e.g. for user racca:
http://racca.deviantart.com/gallery/
3. Download search result, e.g, you want download search result of "rose mary", the start URL should be:
http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&q=rose+mary
4. Download a user's collection, just enter the collection's URL, e.g:
http://matt-kane.deviantart.com/favourites/?3138913#_3138913

If you want also download "Mature Content" from deviantArt, just open deviantArt with IE (must use IE, not firefox or other browser), login with your acount and password (if you not yet have, just sign in, it is free), then change your profile like attached picture show. Keep IE open, run PicaLoader and start downloading.

that's all.

Thanks for creating such a great piece of software!

I am having a problem with deviantart though. I can download an artist's main gallery but I can't download any of their alternate galleries.

For example I can download all of the images from here -

http://assesina.deviantart.com/gallery

but this does not include the images from the OLD FAKE STYLE gallery here -

http://assesina.deviantart.com/gallery/#OLD-FAKE-STYLE

And using this as my start URL does not help. Is there a way around this? (thanks again for the great program)

Brilliant! I'll try that after work and let you know how I get on. (ps Can users write their own plt files, and if so what language is it?)

Thank you so much! This saves me so much time and I deeply appreciate it.

I am having a problem with downloading stuff from the "scraps" folder though, I tried for hours to get it to work on my own but i'm painfully uneducated in how to set the options. Basically I can grab everything fine from;
http://nashya.deviantart.com/gallery/

But I can't download anything at all from;
http://nashya.deviantart.com/gallery/#_browse/scraps
Which is like another 66 pictures.

Also...some things in galleries(not this one) are only available at full resolution from the "download" button and it looks like Picaloader can't grab links from that button. Is there anything you could do about that? An alternate .plt for scraps would be super duper awesome. Don't worry too much about the whole download button thing if it's too much trouble though.

Once again, thank you for the .plt you did provide!

Hey Koala,

I gave that .plt a try and it's still only grabbing from the main gallery and nothing from the scraps gallery.

Edit: Was that the "download button" version? If so, I think it worked. Let me try it some more.

Edit 2: The "download" version(deviantart2.plt) of the .plt definitely works, just tested it out. It does seem to have a lot of error issues(probably caused by DA) where I have to download 3+ times to grab the entire gallery, still, it's very useful so thank you! But yeah, if that was intended for scraps too it didn't work.

Edit 3: It seems to have random "can't get file" errors for random files in the gallery. Some files it just plain won't grab...for reason I can't explain. It just won't recognize them.

Edit 4: Logging in manually seems to get rid of the "can't get file" errors but it still misses a couple of "download" links.

There are 36 download enabled links here;
http://ryo007.deviantart.com/gallery/
And it only grabs 32, give it a try yourself to see if you have the same issue.

Edit 5:(jeez, lol) Well, I tried the new .plt (with manual login) with a bunch of different galleries and it appears to be working fine now. I haven't gotten anymore errors and it appears to grab the highest resolution(download enabled) pictures while defaulting to the "full size" images when no download link is available. The only issue i'm having is with the above linked gallery where it won't grab certain things for whatever reason, it's a mystery to me since 20 other galleries have worked flawlessly now.

Also, as mentioned before it's still not grabbing anything from scraps so that's the only thing left now. Thank you once again for your efforts Koala, I really appreciate it! :D

I just had an interesting problem...I was trying to download the following gallery;
http://scarlet-dragonchild.deviantart.com/gallery/

And instead it downloaded the gallery of;
http://dragonchild.deviantart.com/gallery/

So...basically anyone with a "-" in their name is going to cause the issue from what I can see. I tried replacing the "-" with a few different things but nothing worked.
