* Concerning Imagehost Grabber: More info in: effCup's posts here and here.;
J4ZZ's post; Jism Jim's post; Denaniel's post

Update your host-file, if IHG isn't working:
Thanks a lot effCup!!!
- for pixxxels
- for pimpandhost (the standard host-file will dl only resized files form p&h, if the original image is bigger then c. 750x1000)


For most hosts you have only to update IHG. Be aware, that IHG doesn't work with Firefox V. 4.5 or later.
With Firefox Nightly, Firefox ESR, Firefox Developer Edition or the alternative Browser Pale Moon, it works.
See here for a statement of IHGSupport

** Concerning Downthemall: see maxedout's post here

*** Concerning API: see herkalurk's posts here and here

Yes, I've seeen this. But I saw also alot of files at egafd which are around five or six year old, which are still alive.
And I think only a few were touched within the last year, as they often are only caps for IDing actresses and are buried back in the depth of the forum.
But I will add this in the table.

May be something that accesses them from time to time to keep them active. I've also certainly seen a lot of them dead mate.

Thanks Deezer very nice work.
To add to your table:


IMGBB
Imagehost Grabber cannot access the files,
and I couldn't even save as, on a single image.
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/t333138-imgbb.html
Chrome, Firefox both tried. Maybe I did something wrong.

PimpandHost
Account available, will go more than our 180x180 size,
and will go our 120 images per post in one go. However limited international access.
I made an account and test thread to test.


Apologies if this was covered.


Also seen discussions here about a few Facebook friendly hosts
like http://photoland.io and similar. While these look good,
they are too similar to Photobucket and the like, which were previously
not recommended when I was on staff, due to the non-adult nature.

Where the hell is he getting it? I was able to get it only with JDownloader (I don't use any browser extensions for downloads). Anyway, since they have zip download option (which doesn't botch file names with prefixes, btw), I think this image host can be allowed.

Does it work also with galleries at turboimagehost, when the uploader uploaded anonymous (without registration)?

Sorry, forgot this post of you:
