Post subject:  How do I download all the photos in my Photobucket album

Hey I have a Photobucket Album that's public and when I enter the URL to it it and all I get are crappy thumbnails AND I even get pictures from other people's Photobucket Albums!

Apart from using a web browser to go to every direct link is there any other way I could download the original 1024x768 or 800x600 *.jpg's from my Photobucket Album. I have several hundred (only a few megs. Nowhere near the 1Gig limit) but it's still alot.

So this would certainly be a lot of help for anyone who has bought your product and wishes to download from their Photobucket album that is bigger than mine.
Imagine trying to download a full Gigabyte of *.jpeg's in a web browser using the direct links and then saving the file to My Pictures or something!

Come on guys you must help us! Photobucket is very popular! The only other threads I can see on this topic are from a guy called irox who got no responses.

Developers please respond to me!

for example, my user name on photobucket is KoalaBear2000, my album URL is http://s262.photobucket.com/albums/ii117/KoalaBear2000/, then just make a new task:
Start URL:http://s262.photobucket.com/albums/ii117/KoalaBear2000/
Page URL Include Filters:/\?mediafilter=images$;/\?start=\d+&mediafilter=images$;/\?action=view&current=
Page URL Exclude Filters:\%23$
Picture URL Include Filters:/KoalaBear2000/
Picture URL Exclude Filters:/th_

Other settings using the default.
That all.

For download your own photo album, just instead Start URL with your album URL, and Picture URL Include Filters with /your username/.

Thanks so much. I'm not on my PC at the moment but when I get on it I'll let you know how it goes.

Hmmm I did it but most turned out to be 160x120 thumbnails or something. Is this supposed to happen? It stopped before it got them all probably because I have the free version. Maybe if I got the full version I'd get all the photos and not just the thumbnails?

Sent it twice. First one I forgot to Add the attachment. Didn't realise you had to press Add Attachment after browsing for it.

If you had downloaded these pics before and delete them from PicaLoader, please select main menu->Project->Database->Optimize Project Data to clear them from project database, then download again.

Please check private message, I sent my plp file to you :)

Ok thanks. I'll see if it works.

Ok thank you. The Optimising Project Data thing worked. I have all 251 photos now. But one was an error. Did the same happen to you? Did you get one error and 251 pictures? Just wondering because I'm not sure of the exact amount of photos I have on Photobucket. Just wondering if I got them all apart from the error.

I try the project again and got 252 pics with no error.

If error occured, you can switch to Report pane after downloading, then click Move All To Queue and click Start, PicaLoader will retry the error URLs.

this setting still works. Drag the name of the user album into picloaders drop box.
