IE Picture Downloader retrieves images from Web pages, but disappoints with its hit-and-miss performance. Its utilitarian interface proved easy enough to understand and is accessible from your browser's toolbar. Specify a URL and launch the program, and images are automatically retrieved and appear in the built-in image viewer. Users can set a destination directory for downloaded images, and we like that folders can be renamed by URL or Web page title. Filtering to narrow your downloads by image type and width was a snap to set, but you won't find any advanced options such as setting download level or threads. In our tests, IE Picture Downloader sometimes did what it claims. In some cases, it quickly downloaded images and showed them in the image viewer. On other tested Web pages, however, it either failed to download any of the available images or it failed to retrieve all images even though no filter was enabled. All in all, its concept is good, but users can find more reliable programs than this one.
