TUTORIAL - BID
Bulk Image Downloader is honestly one of my most favorite programs that I have ever had. It allows you to download full-sized images in bulk as the name suggests. In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to install and use the program!
The first thing you're going to need is the program and the crack file. A crack file is a hack that allows you to have full access to a program without having to purchase it. Now, this is piracy, so if you're not okay with that, feel free to head over to the official website and purchase the program. If you're fine with piracy, click the links below to download the program.
OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR PURCHASING
1. Now what you're going to want to do is install the program, obviously. So head on over to the file you downloaded, extract it, and then find the 'Set Up' folder and install the program. You may need to right click > run as administrator. Just install the program as you would any program you've downloaded. When it has completed, DO NOT run it yet. This box will pop up:
What you need to do is uncheck all of those boxes and then click on finish.
2. Now we're going to crack the program so that we have access to all of the features! Go back into the Bulk Image Downloader file that you downloaded and this time click on the 'Crack Fix' folder. Inside there will be a zipped folder and you need to right-click and extract that. A file called 'ChilkatDelphi32.dll' will be extracted. You need to right click and copy this file.
Head to your program files, this will be under 'this pc' or 'my computer' or whatever it's called respectively on your own computer/laptop:
You'll need to go to program files (x86) and then go into the Bulk Image Downloader folder:
And then paste the file in there. That will give you the full program!
NOTE: WHEN YOU OPEN THE PROGRAM, IT WILL TELL YOU A NEW VERSION OF BID IS AVAILABLE. DO NOT CLICK YES. IT WILL UPGRADE THE PROGRAM, AND THEN THE PROGRAM WILL REVERT TO A FREE VERSION, AND YOU'LL LOSE FULL ACCESS TO THE PROGRAM. ALWAYS CLICK NO.
It's important to note that the program might be blocked by your virus protection. Simply allow the program access to your computer and this will be fixed. It isn't a virus, I promise. I have used this program, a cracked version, for the past 8+ years. The reason it's telling you that it is a virus is that the program is hacked.
3. Now that we have the program downloaded and installed, the real fun begins! Head on over to a fansite gallery. I'll be using this one (of course) for loml Elizabeth Chase Olsen. You need to choose an album to download photos from. I'm going to be using these adorable photos from this photo call from 2015. Just copy the link to the album and paste it in the bar:
Now you're going to click on the green arrow button:
And this will show BID what it needs to download. Next, you'll want to click on the download button:
This is going to download the photos!
Now just sit back and watch the magic unfold.
4. As the program downloads the files, you'll notice one by one the list will get shorter and shorter. When the program is blank and looks like this:
Your images are ready!
5. The program will automatically send everything you've downloaded to a BID folder in your documents (this can be changed). So head over to your documents and find the folder titled Bulk Image Downloader.
As you can see, all of the files have been downloaded and are full sized images!
That's it! That's all you need to do! A few things to remember: - Some fansites can block the use of this program. If this happens, there is really no way around it. Sometimes, using a VPN like Betternet will help, but most of the time, it doesn't.
- You can customize the settings of the program to your liking, these are the settings that I like to use:
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to message me on here or discord! I hope you enjoy this program as much as I do!
