I’m a Gentleman improves Chrome’s image downloading capabilities
All web browsers support the downloading of images from websites. All you need to do is right-click on an image and select the save option.
While that works fine for individual images, it is far from ideal when it comes to downloading lots of images in your browser of choice as you have to repeat this over and over again.
While you could utilize the browser cache for that, as images are automatically placed in it when loaded, it is not overly comfortable as well.
I’m a Gentleman for Chrome improves the browser’s image saving capabilities in three distinct ways.
First, it allows you to save any image you see on a web page directly by holding down the Alt-key and left-clicking on it. This works well for most images, but fails if images are protected by invisible layers and other protective measures.
If you don’t like to use the Alt-key modifier for that, you may save images by dragging them slightly on the page. Just left-click and hold, and drag the image a bit to save it.
Last but not least, it implements a mass-image download option that you can make use of to save multiple images in a single operation on a page you execute that option on.
To do so simply click on the extension icon while you are on the page that displays the images. Chrome displays a prompt afterwards to allow or block the mass downloading of images on the page you are on.
A click on allow downloads all images on the page to the default download folder.
I’m a Gentleman ships with a single option to deactivate the drag to save feature of the extension.
The extension improves the image downloading capabilities of the Chrome browser in two significant ways. First, it improves the downloading of individual images by speeding it up. Second, it enables mass downloading of images.
Chrome users who require that should consider using the Fatkun Batch Download Image extension for the browser instead which offers that.
