NIC is the perfect tool for collecting images from Usenet newsgroups. NIC can search one or more newsgroups for images by scanning each posted message. When a message contains image content, the image is downloaded to your computer. You control which newsgroups to search and you can filter out unwanted images by using advanced filter settings. Optional advanced features let you filter your image search by using a variety of different methods. You can filter message subject and author by keywords to allow or ignore certain images.You can filter images by width, height, file size, and file extension to skip thumbnail images or large space wasting images. You can save your images in one main directory or you can build a directory tree for a visual guide to where each image came from.
NIC includes stop conditions to help you manage the search process and the number of files downloaded. Different browsing perspectives give you choices on how to see your thumbnails and full size images.Advanced importing and exporting features allow you to zip up your image collection and share it with friends. NIC is a Java based program, and it is available in Windows, Linux and MacOS. There are separate files for each operating system, so please visit our website if the file for your operating system is not listed here.
