Imagehostgrabber Tutorial. (Easiest way to download imagebox and Imagebam pics.)

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Since Imagebox.com and imagebam.com are going to shout down, you are probably wondering how you can save your posts from getting obsolete and your pics from getting lost.

 

The logical thing would be to just download them and reupload them to a new image hoster.

But since you probably don’t have the time do download pic by pic, I bring you an alternative.  

 

The Firefox plugin called “Imagehostgrabber”

With that useful tool you can simply press one Butten and rip a whole forum page. But the best thing, it also features a so called “threat sucker”. Just type the pages you want IHG to download and the rest is done for you

 

Unfortunately it’s not that simple to run nowadays since firefox forces there app creators to licence their apps with a expensive signature. The creators of IHG decided against it, so it’s not that easy to download anymore.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not illegal to use it, nor is it harmful. I am using it for the past 6 years and I am very happy with it.

 

 

For anyone who’s interested, I will give a tutorial on how to use it step by step.

If you want, you can share the information in the topics, so anyone can see it.   

 

1. Since Firefox is such a trouble maker you should get the firefox based Browser Pale Moon.

Get it here: https://www.palemoon.org/

 

2. Now in your Palemoon got to the IHG Forum and download the Program itself.

3. Restart Palemoon and click on the blue Pale Moon button on top

Navigate to Imagehostgrabber then click on options like you see in pic

1.thumb.JPG.a5c736fe49f058aef6e67d2ccebf991a.JPG

 

go to the Embedded Images tab and check the “download embedded images”

You can experiment with the width and height options as you like but I would suggest to set the file size to 0

Now go to the host File tab and make sure “Enabel automatic update” is checked.

(optional) you can click on the File Saving Options tab and change the way files get renamed. On default it will rename the image with a number in front regarding the position of it on the page. Meaning the order is intakt.

If you don’t want that just uncheck it then it gets the original File name. But be warned, this could lead to chaos in your folders.

 

4. Now it’s time to use it.

Go to any bellazon threat with images on it (best if there are pics from imagebam or imagebox)

Right klick anywhere on the page,

Go to imagehostgrabber

Press on “get all images from this site”

Set a download folder and press confirm you want to update the hoste file by hitting ok. (you only have to do this once) hit ok again and watch the magic work.

Once you did everything correctly you should see every pic in your destination folder.

5.thumb.JPG.ad6806c3735a4fae9cd2dd86d88d54d3.JPG

 

5. Now here comes the best part.

Of course downloading one page at a time is amazing but we can do better.

 

Like in part 4 press anywhere at a threat you want to rip multiple pages. But this time hit “suck this current threat”

You need to have seen at least to pages of this threat for it to work.

Then again select the destination folder

Decide the first and last page you want IHG to download and hit ok. This might take a while and your Pale moon might freez a couple of moments. Don’t panic this is normal.  

 

In my example I decidet do download page 1-10

6.thumb.JPG.30cd0fa83947e46ea037962f290ba8e8.JPG

And as you can see every image is in place.

 

But keep in mind that IHG will download each and every image on a page you select. So peoples Avatars, signatures or just plane stupid Memes are going to be ripped as well. You can change that by setting the minimal image size 20 (as shown in point 3) but this will not always work.

 

6. Now it’s on you. Backup your images, and hopefully reupload them to a new imagehosting website. And edit your old posts to show the new links, or post them again.  

 

Final Words:

IHG technically works for every website that uses Images. Facebook, Instagram, Gettyimages and even your daily news website, as long if the images are legaly obtainable. So No, you can’t get the untagged Gettyimages files withit.  If any site is not compatible you can always ask in the https://imagehostgrabber.com/forum if someone can make it work. They are very nice and helpful people.

 

As A short note, please don’t change the Max simulations http request to anything higher than 5. This already puts a heavy stress on any site you are using it on, so please don’t overdo it.

Yes this should work. You should be able to simply install it.

The developers changed their update links a couple of months ago, so your IHG simple doesn’t know what to do with the links. The new host file should help.    

Palemoon is a browser like firefox ore chrome. It looks like firefox and can run IHG without problems.

Have uninstalled FF Quantum on one of my PC's and have reinstalled FF 56.0.2. Now I can use again Imagehostgrabber for forums like BZ.
