Bulk Image Downloader is an incredible program. It works out of the box and the developers are making sure that it stays that way. It is definitely one of the easiest and most convenient image downloaders if not the easiest and most convenient that is currently available on the Internet. New features are added all the time and the devs are very responsive to customer suggestions.
BID web browser integration is automatic for Opera and Internet Explorer. FireFox and Chrome integration require extensions to be installed.
Image Host Support – BID works with almost all popular image hosting sites, such as flickr, imagevenue, imagefap, imageshack, imagebam, etc.
Social Networking Sites – BID supports album downloading from sites such as facebook, myspace, and twitter related hosts like tweetphoto.com, twitpic.com, yfrog.com
Full Sized Images – BID uses an advanced heuristic scoring method to locate full sized images. This means BID can work on most galleries automatically, with no user configuration necessary.
