Iphoto is a software solution designed to help you automatically download all pictures from a user defined website.
While such a task can be also done manually via any web browser, Iphoto makes our lives easier by providing a powerful tool to automatically retrieve all photos from a link you provide.
The interface is pretty simple and intuitive; it works in a browser like manner, requesting you to enter a link in the address bar and thus scan the website for pictures. The funny thing is that you can't press the “Enter” button to load a page, so you need to use the dedicated button placed in the toolbar.
Once a website has been loaded, Iphoto displays the pictures in thumbnail view in a separate panel, alongside the full size photo for a better preview. There are three available options: get any picture, get available thumbnails and get big size pictures.
If you intend to change the destination folder, you must access “Options” menu where you can find a lot of settings related to thumbnails, picture names, URL history, connection and search.
The program runs on very low resources, even when downloading big size pictures, providing a tiny floating window for anytime access to the main features of the app.
Overall, Iphoto is a useful application, but there are still a couple of things to be improved. Plus, a more user friendly and better organized interface would come in very handy.
