Quite ok, but far too low-res. Not really usable.

I guess it depends on your use. For interior viz, I found them to be excellent. 128 pixels x 128 pixels for a 4" bathroom tile is more than enough for me.

Hehe, I spent half a day downloading them all :)

You should try some tools that save websites for offline browsing. For tasks like this I like using webzip (not free but trial available) and webreaper(free). Next time they might save you some time.

Someone once told somewhere on this message board that downloading such media resources is wasteful, as not all of the content is useful/good quality and that you can always get selected downloads online, but my argument was that I like to keep local backups of such things because you never know if the website will be there next time you go there and if the free stuff will be still there. Better safe than sorry :)

Hi Art,

I wish I though of that before :)

I usually use Getright download manager, browse the url, and download all the images. Unfortunately, this website had all the image paths embedded in Javascript so I couldn't browse them.

I didnt look at the website much before. It does use lots of javascript indeed. I hate when they hide url and status bar like that. No big deal to go around that, but its annoying.
I wonder if the web saving tools would work properly with that website. Will try later at home.

that's the BEST website local mirror program I've ever found... IT'S AMAZING.. I don't use it to download jpg files though, due to copyright issues... However, I've found it amazing in downloading freebie stuff like Public Domain Music websites and a copy of the D20 site from http://www.wizards.com/d20 - most sites put files in directories on their servers, htttrack will copy that structure on your hard drive - nice since you get all stuff organized for you.

HTTrack works well with that website. I used this link to start with:

For mac users I'd have to recommend PixxxGrabber

version 1.5 is freeware

It's good for downloading those large pix, linked from thumbnail pages. Hence the Triple X in Pix.

Great for building up your anatomy blueprint library :)
