maybe you want to save an image or a video clip from the web through your browser as it would make a great background or you want to include it in the video you are creating. In most cases (especially when it comes to images) you can simply right-click on the file and select “save image as” or something similar.
But sometimes that doesn’t work, or isn’t good enough. What if there is no save option on the right click menu? What if you want to quickly save dozens of images from a web page? What if you’re trying to save an animated video as a GIF or you keep downloading one of those .webp files that no one wants?
That’s where third-party browser extensions can come in handy, which dig deeper into a page’s HTML code to pull out the image or video clip you’re tracking and automate it. process for you.
Image downloader continues
Open Image downloader continues (Chrome/Edge) and you’ll have a neatly organized grid of all the images on the current web page: You can see the format and size of each image, save them to disk, and even filter and sort them based on their size. The add-on couldn’t be simpler to use and it is one of the best for downloading images.
Download all images
Download all images (Chrome/Edge) works slightly differently than Image Downloader Continued. It can fetch some images when Image Downloader Continued cannot and vice versa. Click the extension button when you are on a web page and any images on the page will be included in a zip archive so you just have to choose where to save the images.
Ultimate Video Downloader
If you’re having trouble saving a video from a website—whether it’s embedded in a page or included in a social media post—Ultimate Video Downloader (Chrome/Edge) can lend a hand. With just one click you will see a list of all the videos included in the website that you are currently watching and then you can get their URLs or save them locally.
Twitter Video Downloader
Sometimes you need a specific tool for a website, that’s where Twitter Video Downloader (Chrome/Edge) appearance: It takes clips posted to social media without much fuss and neatly embeds itself in the page so it’s almost like a native feature. Just click the download icon next to a tweet with a video in it to save the file.
Base Image Downloader
GIFs can be especially difficult to extract. Some sites publish them as GIFs, others use the mp4 format, and others convert them back. Regardless of the format, Base Image Downloader (Chrome/Edge) excels at taking almost anything GIF related (and supports most other image formats). The extension displays a collection of thumbnails of the images and you can save them all at once or one by one.
Screen recorder and editor
If other tools don’t work, you can try using a screen recording tool instead. Screen recorder and editor (Chrome/Edge) is one of the best which, in my experience, gives you lots of options to record the active tab or the whole screen and it includes editing features.
Save the Website
Another option for bulk fetching elements from a web page is to save the entire page. Save the Website (Chrome/Edge) works pretty well. It’s simple to use and supports keyboard shortcuts. Depending on the site you’re working on, you can choose to save images from a page to disc, and in some cases this also works for audio and video files.
Download all images
When Download all images (Firefox) has the same name as another extension above, it’s not the same extension—and it works with Mozilla’s browser. This add-on offers many options, allowing you to filter downloads by image size, image type, and even image URL (so you don’t accidentally download ads or linked content). other) and has a lot of flexibility when it comes to how the captured images are saved.
Take them all down
neatly named Take them all down (Firefox) can pull absolutely anything from a web page, including images, videos, and audio tracks. It’s not a blunt tool at all and comes with plenty of options for choosing what to save and where to save it. This is one of those extensions that you will quickly find necessary.
Another extension to save entire web pages, Single file (Firefox) is one of the best and most productive. It will download all the HTML, text, and images on a particular web page, and it integrates very neatly into the Firefox interface. If you are having trouble getting images using other extensions, then this extension might be the solution.
