Image Grabber - Numeric Mode


The Image Grabber utility program can operate in three different modes. This page describes how it can be used to download a series of files whose names follow a numeric sequence.



  • 1 and 2. The URL (web address) of the desired file typically consists of a part preceding and following a changing number. One specifies those parts in boxes 1 and 2.

  • 3 and 4. The same number will be inserted into the saved file name. You specify the text you want to precede and follow the number (including the file extension) in boxes 3 an 4.

  • 5. Here you specify the range of numbers in the filenames you want to download, and whether that number should be padded to a fixed length using leading zeroes. If "#Digits" is set to zero, no additional digits (zeroes) will be inserted.

  • 6. This button lets one specify the folder on the hard drive (or other storage device) to which the files are to be downloaded.

  • 7. The memo box records the progress of the downloads, and whether they are successful or not.

  • 8. This button initiates the sequence of downloads covering the range of numbers specified above.

  • 9. An optional "Test Mode" shows how the list will be processed without actually attempting the downloads.

  • 10. Abort buttons permit immediate termination of the download in progress (with attendant loss of date), or halting the download sequence at the end of the current download.

  • 11. The clear button erases the contents of the memo box.
