Images on the internet are great. Can you imagine using the internet in the mid 90’s when it was mainly just text? We use images in different ways now. At how-to blogs like Twothirds.Us, we use them to guide you through a technical process. It’s much better to look at annotated screenshots than to just rely on text.

There comes a point in life where you want to download images as well. It could be for many reasons. Downloading a single image isn’t a big deal. Right-click, hit “Save As” and you’re done.

But when you’re talking about a photo essay that struck your fancy, or a list of posters from a design inspiration blog that you want to save for inspiration, saving images one-by-one won’t do.

Why You Might Want to Bulk Download Images

To initiate bulk image downloads, consider the following ideas where it is beneficial.

If you find yourself on a how-to blog like Instructables, iFixit, or Twothirds.Us and want to save the screenshots for a process, or come across an awesome Imgur album, Flickr album, or any other photo sharing site that you want to download, here’s how to do it. Your own use cases might be different, but think of a web page with a dozen or more images that you want to download.

How to Bulk Download Images in Chrome

There are many Chrome extensions to achieve this task, and I tried several of them. The most effective extension was called Image Downloader, which already has 250,000 users and is more reliable than its competitors. Once you’ve downloaded the extension, go to the page with your images and click the Image Downloader icon.

A drop-down menu will show previews of the page’s images. Click on the desired images to download them – they’ll be highlighted with a blue border. Specify a subfolder at the top to save the images.

Pro tip: Use the sliders to set the minimum height and width. A width of around 400px removes unnecessary website elements like icons.

The subfolder method is useful for image management, better than dumping all images directly into the downloads folder.

Bulk Download Images (ZIG) is a powerful extension for downloading images in bulk, offering a range of additional features.

ZIG simplifies specifying rules for image resolution, type, linked images, and more. The UI is not as concise or intuitive as Image Downloader, but feature-wise, ZIG has the upper hand.
