What's new in v3.00?

Major new changes in version 3.00
  • Download EMBEDDED images (not just thumbnailed images as in earlier versions)

  • NEW filter toolbar buttons let you quickly select between
    • "Thumbnailed images only" - images that link to larger images on another page
    • "Embedded images only" - images displayed on the web page
    • "All images" - Thumbnailed and Embedded images

  • Support for URL "Range Specifiers" (Fusker style links)
    • Load multiple sequentially numbered pages automatically by using "range specifiers" in URLs
      A range specifier is of the form [from-to], where from and to are numbers or letters.

      e.g. To load all pages in a multi page web gallery where the page URLs are
      http://example.com/gallery/page1.html,
      http://example.com/gallery/page2.html,
      ...,
      http://example.com/gallery/page99.html

      You would use the URL:
      http://example.com/gallery/page[1-99].html

    • Range specifiers can be used to quickly build images lists
      e.g. http://example.com/gallery/pics/image[001-999].jpg

  • DRAG and DROP support
    • Drag URLs, links and files directly into BID or BID Queue Manager (supports IE, FireFox and Chrome)
    • new floating Drop Targets for BID and BID Queue Manager
    • BID and the Queue Manager now have "Stay on Top" options - useful when dragging links directly into the applications.
      Use this together with BID's "Append to existing links" to quickly combine multiple gallery links into a single download batch.

  • GOOGLE CHROME support
    • Install the BID Google Chrome Extension to add a BID button to the Chrome toolbar.
      This button allows you to Open the current page with BID, Send the current page to the Queue Manager, or Open the current page with the BID Link Explorer.
    • Open links with BID or the Queue Manager by dragging them into the new BID and Queue Manager Drop Targets.
    • BID can now read Google Chrome cookies (configure via BID Configuration page)
  
  • PLUS many other internal improvements

    site.com/gallery/page.html
    site.com/gallery/page2.html
    site.com/gallery/page3.html
    ...
    site.com/gallery/page10.html


    The increment will default to 1 if not specified.

    'label' is a single letter name for the particular range variable, e.g. [A] or [B], etc.
    Use labels if you need to use the current range value elsewhere in the URL
    e.g. http://site.com/album[5-10,A]/pics[A]_[001-100].jpg
    The range [5-10] is labelled 'A'
    [A] will be replaced with the current value of the range [5-10] when generating the list.

    You can add an optional offset to the label value as follows:
    [label{+n}]

    e.g. http://site.com/album[1-10,A]/pics[A]_[001-100].jpg
    where the [A] refers to the current value of the [1-10] range...

    This will produce:
    http://site.com/album5/pics5_001.jpg
    http://site.com/album5/pics5_002.jpg
    ...
    http://site.com/album5/pics5_100.jpg
    http://site.com/album6/pics6_001.jpg
    http://site.com/album6/pics6_002.jpg

What's new in v2.15?

Changes 2.15.0.4? [11 September 2009]
  • Automatic image link derivation added for imagehaven (no redirection lookups required)
  • Italian translation updated
  • Polish translation updated

Changes in 2.15.0.3? [9 September 2009]
  • Added new "Only resolve redirect links at download time' option to Advanced Config->Redirect Links
    Normally BID will resolve all redirection links immediately after a page is loaded. The problem with this is that some redirection "services" (like urlcash) will ban you IP if too many lookups are performed within a short space of time. To reduce the chances of your IP being banned this option will cause BID to perform the lookup just before it attempts to download the full sized image. For best results you may also need to reduce the number of simulateneous downloads.
  • Added automatic link derivation for cocoimage images
  
Changes in 2.15.0.2? [7 September 2009]
  • Improved redirection resolution
    Some redirection "services" like urlcash block a user's IP if there are too many redirection lookups within a certain period. To minimise this problem BID can now derive the full sized image link directly from the thumbnailed image without having to resolve the redirection link. This works for the following image hosts:
    imagevenue, imagefap, imagebam, hotlinkimage, picfoco, pixhost, upmyphoto, imagehaven, cocoimage
    (Make sure the "Don't follow redirect links..." option is enabled in Advanced Config->Redirect Links).
  • Links were not extracted correctly on some web sites (fixed)

  • fixed rare bug that might cause image not to be saved due to invalid characters in filename
  • Updated support for bayimg galleries
 
Changes in 2.14.0.3 [26 August 2009]? 
  • include/ignore/redirect lists now support simple "must contain" or "must not contain" substring matching.
    Many users find regular expressions hard to understand so now BID allows for simple substring matching.

    If a link must include a certain string use the form
    <url must include this>
    e.g. <example.com/image.php?>
    (only links containing "example.com/image.php" will match)

    If a link must exclude a certain string use the form
    <!url must exclude this>
    e.g. <!something=1>
    (only links that don't contain "something=1" will match).

    These may be combined together - all must be true for a link to be matched.
    e.g. To match URLs containing "wantthis=1" and "alsowantthis=2" that don't contain "unwanted=1":
    <wantthis=1><alsowantthis=2><!unwanted=1>

    A normal regular expression can follow, e.g. example above but URL must end with "test=1"
    <wantthis=1><alsowantthis=2><!unwanted=1>test\=1$
  • fixed some possible issues with URLs containing the + character

    This would force BID to load this link as the image instead of other image files on the web page.
