Have you ever wanted to download all images from your favorite website but couldn’t do it because of too much work involved in it? As a web developer even I often find it tiresome to grab icons or background images from the theme file. Using ‘Inspect element’ option from right click menu in Google Chrome and grabbing images from Resources tab is also a good option but often requires you to download images one by one. That’s too time consuming!!!
Of course,one of the very simple way to download images from a website would be clicking right mouse button and select ‘Save Image As’ option, but yet again this is not a practical or at least genius approach to the problem. Moreover, it is a time consuming errand. To give you respite, we’ve covered some useful tools to download multiple images from website more efficiently without wasting much time.

Image collector is a Google Chrome extension which is distributed for free on Chrome store. Similar to above extensions, it can be used to download images and lot many things from a webpage. However, it works in different way. Users can directly download images to their Dropbox or Google Drive account. In order to download images to your Windows Pc, you need to install Cygwin.
