    Bulk downloading the gallery

    I'd like to download all pictures of the Jango and Zam Gallery to have quick access before I start working on those parts. I started with a few pictures, but quickly noticed, that it would take ages to do it manually.

    Is there a way to download several pictures at once or even the whole section?

    Or maybe there is a faster way than what I did.
    I basically opened the section, clicked on the picture, enlarged it and then downloaded it.
    Downloading from the section overview will just download the thumbnail of the picture.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sadly there's no such option, but it would be great. The only problem is the huge number of images and their size: I downloaded around 40-50% of the images (used the same method as you, but in the period of 2-3 years) from different sections of the TDH Gallery (only Boba Fett) and they already have around 10 GB in size. Use a lot of patience and prepare your fingers to do a lot of clicking on the images.

    Thank you for your reply. But I hoped to get another answer.

    Well, compared to the huge Boba gallery, Jango and Zam are indeed rather small...but still much work.

    @Admins: Am I correct, when I assume that the pictures are in seperate folders for each gallery (same structure maybe?) on one fileshare? Would it be possible to create an ftp access to it?
    This access could be temporary after request, if security is an issue.

    I had hoped for the same thing a while back...... but have been picking away at it.....

    Like Raf said..... lots of clicks........ but very much worth it....

    Same here...I think I have about 10 GB like rafal just from clicking over time...It would be nice to be able to DL maybe each gallery itself. I'll look into it, between Kaufmann and Art someone may have an idea.

    Don't think it's an option as it would lower traffic on the site.

    It takes forever doesn't it. It does present me the opportunity to study some of the images far more closely over time though.

    Re: Bulk downloading the gallery

    Could a couple of us work together and download certain parts, compile it all, and then wrap it into a .rar file or something so we could share them all?

    If we had a handful of people doing it it wouldn't take all that long.
