Zenopolis has released Gallery Grabber QED 1.0 (http://www.zenopolis.com/software/gallerygrabber/), an image download tool for Mac OS X. With it links to gallery pages can be dragged to the Gallery Grabber interface or the application can be launched directly from a browser using a Safari or Firefox extension.

Gallery Grabber automatically detects the type of gallery it’s processing; for example, whether or not there are thumbnails and whether or not the images are embedded on a second page. When more control is needed, the software’s automatic behavior can be overridden, forcing a gallery to be downloaded using a chosen method. It extracts only the gallery images themselves, leaving banners, thumbnails and page design behind. Gallery Grabber doesn’t work with all types of web galleries — in particular, search engine results, Flash galleries and pages with frames.

Gallery Grabber QED costs US$5.0 and requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later. It’s an Universal Binary app so runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. A demo is available for download.
