Hi, I was wondering if you could help in downloading pictures from the skins.be site. I don't quite understand the url filters and page filters.

Thanks a bunch!!

Great site!
I check the site with IE and found picture display page URLs are sequential(I only interest in 1024X768 wallpapers):
PicaLoader 1.42 support batch download this kind of URLs in one task, so we needn't to follow every links and reject useless.
I don't like to store more than 3000 pictures into one task, and don't like waiting for first picture after PicaLoader check more than 3000 pages, so I split it into 7 tasks, and download them one by one.
Check out attached project file for detail(you must have PicaLoader 1.42 or later installed).

What if you wanted a different resolution? Such as 1280x1024 when you change the links your provided to say http://www.skins.be/framepic.php?id=22050&size=1280 you get 1280x960 not 1280x1024. How do I find what the size is for 1280x1024? Thanks

It looks like this site has changed since the above instructions and project file were posted. So the above may not work anymore.

If you look at a few of links:

http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/christina ... /1280x960/
http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/christina ... 1280x1024/
http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/christina ... 1680x1050/
http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/paris-hil ... /1280x960/
http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/paris-hil ... 1280x1024/
http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/paris-hil ... 1680x1050/

you'll see what is and is not common among them. So it breaks down to this: http://www.skins.be/wallpaper/NAME/PIC#/SIZE/

So if you want all the 1280x1024 pics, your include filter should include /1280x1024/

I would think something like /wallpaper/.+/\d+/1280x1024/ would work.

If you wanted only Paris Hiltons 1280x1024 images, try this:

A sample of where the images are stored:

http://wallpapers.skins.be/paris-hilton ... -22502.jpg
http://wallpapers.skins.be/paris-hilton ... -22502.jpg

It looks like each celeb/model has their own directory/folder so I would have PL duplicate it if you want each persons images in seperate folders. But you could store them all in the same folder since the filenames seem to have a consistant structure of NAME-SIZE-PIC#.jpg

You could also add a picture include filter like: -1280x1024-

The thumbnails are at http://thumbnails.skins.be/ so if you don't want them just include that in the pictures exclude filter or just the word thumb will also probably work.

Hopefully this will help you create a new project file.

For download all celebrity's picture:
Create a new task:
Start URL:http://www.skins.be/celebrity/
Support J/VB/JavaScript disabled
Page Location:Within current site
Page URL Include Filters:/celebrity/\w+/$|/celebrity/\w+-\w+/$|/celebrity/\w+-\w+-\w+/$;/1024X768/$

It worked for me. You may not be waiting long enough. I changed the starting URL to "http://www.skins.be/celebrity/alyssa-milano/" and Followed Links to This page and 1 level and got all her images at 1024X768 plus some others due to the way the site is designed. I also changed the project properties Picture Folder to a valid location on my pc.

Hello tak00!

Maybe I am not creating the right settings for this project. Can you send me a project file by which you download individual celebrities wallpapers please?

Author:  tak00 [ Tue Jul 11, 2006 6:04 pm ]

Here's a project file with 2 examples for downloading individuals. One gets all sizes and the other just gets the 1024x768 size wallpaper. You should be able to edit them for other sizes or individuals.

Why are you using Notepad? Use PicaLoader, select the Task and then the Option Tab. Use the examples above to create the filters you need for the size of files you want to get.
