Of course it should not be used for nefarious purposes, but Apple’s Safari browser makes it trivial to download all the images or files on a web page you are visiting. Here’s how:
I had The Logo Factory create a special logo for my company eSolia’s 10th anniversary, and they prepared a page with the deliverables on it. I did not want to download each one individually, and I remembered that the Safari Activities window allows you to access the objects on a page directly, such as various file attachments on a page.
O’ Sensei of Safari, How Do We Achieve this Magic?
You can use Safari’s Activity and Downloads windows, both available in the Window menu in Safari, in this way:
- Browse the page you want to download from, then open Activity from the Window menu.
- Find the page among the other pages if you have multiple tabs open. Use the disclosure triangle to open the outline of the objects on the page.
- Find and select your download targets. Press Cmd-C to copy to clipboard.
- Display the Downloads dialog, also available in the Window menu, then paste into it. Cmd-v.
You should see the images or files start to download in the Downloads window. I hope this is helpful to someone.
