@rlg118 - if you're more looking for a user friendly frontend, try ACDSee. it has simple editing functions and beside it has a pretty DB to organize your images, create contact sheets/gallery index files etc. here you can download a 30 days trial version:

If it isn't being tested and it isn't the "real" program, what is it?

simple PR to announce the official version. you can call it a final beta release, too

creating an alias is very easy - just hold the "alt"-key when you move a folder/file with the drag&drop method into your favorite folder.

no further software is necessary for this feature.

just be aware that on windows versions below vista any change of a folder or file (renaming / moving / deleting) interrupts the functionality of its alias cause the target property of the alias won't change automically if its referenced object has changed. you have to update your alias by hand (Win XP or lower).

When in doubt Wiki

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Softwar...ase_life_cycle

"Release candidate

The term release candidate (RC) refers to a version with potential to be a final product, ready to release unless fatal bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization, all product features have been designed, coded and tested through one or more beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bug.

Apple Inc. uses the term "golden master" for its release candidates, and the final golden master is used as the general availability release. Other Greek letters, such as gamma and delta, are sometimes used to indicate versions that are substantially complete, but still undergoing testing, with omega or zenith used to indicate final testing versions that are believed to be relatively bug-free, ready for production.

A release is called code complete when the development team agrees that no entirely new source code will be added to this release. There may still be source code changes to fix defects. There may still be changes to documentation and data files, and to the code for test cases or utilities. New code may be added in a future release."


To put it in perspective...been using it for a week...first security update arrived today
Aside from a couple of freezes which occured in previous firefox versions its been relatively smooth....if you check the tools/error console you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise

Here's an annoying one: I love ImageHost Grabber. I mean, if you hang out in a forum like this a lot, then that program is a real essential.

On to the problem: The program works great with Firefox on my PC, but when I tried to add it on my laptop, it does absolutely nothing. It says it's installing, but then there's nothing there when you right-click (you know how it works).

I checked the homepage, and so far there's nothing about the program working with Firefox 4. That may be the problem, but I could have sworn that I had the newest version of Firefox on both my PC and my laptop (and they're both running Windows 7). Still, only the laptop seems to have a problem.

This is a bit of an annoyance, because I download a lot of pics from this forum. But at the moment if I want to do big grabs, I have to do it in my office. I'd like to be able to sit in the living room and watch TV in my big comfy chair while I'm downloading. As it is currently, I mainly check the discussion threads from the laptop, then spend several hours in the office for the actual content.

I looked around for a program similar to ImageHost Grabber, but I only found one, and it wasn't freeware. Has anyone run across something else that works? If not, has anyone had the same problem?

Well, its easy enough to verify what version of Firefox you have on each computer. Just click on Help then About Mozilla Firefox, the version will be listed in the resulting box.

I wouldn't be surprised if IHG isn't (yet) compatible with FF4. While there are a few people regularly contributing with new host definitions and updating old definitions the actual programming is one guy I believe.

As for alternatives, DownThemAll is popular but personally I've never been able to make it work with several popular hosts.

As it turned out, both the PC and laptop were running the same version of Firefox (3.6.16). After going back and forth with older and newer versions of ImageHost Grabber, I finally found one that worked on the laptop... and then I discovered that it wouldn't recognize Imagebam pics. *sigh* So it's still pretty much useless. As a result, I'm still downloading all my pics on my PC.

The help forum on the ImageHost Grabber site wasn't particularly helpful. Unfortunately, the guy who made the software can't seem to talk down to the level of us morons who are asking questions. His answers to people's questions are WAY too "programmer"-y.

Maybe someday a new update will come along that will solve the issues. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

By the way, I upgraded to Firefox on my laptop (because I figured if I already couldn't use ImageHost Grabber anyway, there was no reason not to). But I hated the new control arrangement so much that I went back to the old Firefox after a day. I don't know; maybe I'm just getting old and set in my ways.

you need the additonal anti-container plugin to download images from imagefile hosts with downthemall. without this addition, downthemall is only able to grab images where the images from the thumbnail page are directly linked with their fullsize versions. hosts like imagevenue or imagebam embed those fullsize images in an html-container (therefore "anti-container"), while the url of the fullsize image (just the file) is not known by the thumbnail.
