Editors' Review

+

This elementary utility for locating and downloading pictures lives up to the PicGrabber part of its name, though it's no longer Free. FreePicGrabber installs as an Internet Explorer toolbar for easy access. After you open a Web gallery, a simple press of the Grab button (usually) downloads all pictures on the page. The program also lets you find and retrieve images from the Web based on your keywords. The thumbnail browser is a nice touch, especially for search results, although even the larger preview images can obscure important details.

Without filtering, porno pictures make a good deal of search results even for such innocent keywords as London, Paris, and Prague, but the adult-content blocker option takes care of this issue nicely. In some galleries, a few pictures didn't download for unspecified reasons, whereas some ad graphics did download. After 100 pictures, the program adds a registration notice in the centers of downloaded images. Web builders or anyone else who needs a fast way to download multiple images at once may appreciate FreePicGrabber.

"Unreliable"

September 02, 2013  |  By luvs2bhrd--2008

 |  Version: FreePicGrabber 3.4

Pros

It does on occasion find your pics. but I have encountered it getting the total opposite of what I had put in the search box

Cons

It more than too many times comes up with nothing (even with the internet settings set too low. and I mean even if you search for something as common as pics of butterflies and nothing. and don't try to get a hold of the software makers-peddlers because they will not address your concerns or problems. which in my opinion makes them crooks.

Summary

I think I said all I needed to say for 29.95 I expected better software. and am more than a little disappointed with the above tittle they need to do some upgrades or something because as is it would be more reliable to do a picture search off of Google.

"Won't work in Windows 7 unless you turn off security!"

February 14, 2011  |  By hellnbak

 |  Version: FreePicGrabber 3.4

Pros

Works great in XP

Cons

Will not work in Windows 7 unless you lower your internet security level to the lowest possible setting, which nowadays would be stupid. You actually get a message telling you to turn off your internet security!

Summary

They are leaving themselves wide open to a whole slew of lawsuits from people who took their advice, dropped their internet security and promptly got their computers infected with any number of infections and whatnot. Really stupid of them.
