Useless don't bother, can't find anything compared to Google, Yahoo or Bing. It's just not working well and it's the biggest ext I've seen at 4.5mb. If only I could give it less than one star.
This is more than two years old. Current versions are on our site.
Ok... How do you use this ? Doesn't show up in my firefox 16.x browser....
This version works with FF 4 to 15. When not yet available here, the latest versions of all our extensions can be downloaded directly from outwit.com. (The next versions uploaded to AMO will probably be the ones using OutWit Kernel 3.0 --still in beta at this point.)
Very good extension, can view slide show of images in tabs. But not working with 4.0b6pre. Could you please update this for latest beta version. Thank you.
Sorry for this late response: v0.3.0.1 was just released (works with 4b6). We are updating on AMO about once a month and unfortunately, there can be some delay with the pre versions of FF. In this case, please check if a later version of OutWit is not waiting in the sandbox to be reviewed or, if you wish, if there is not an intermediate update on outwit.com.Thanks Nick,JC
Very good extension for downloading images from the web.
Used to like cooliris, but the autocatch feature on this makes it the better image tool. Won't work on forums etc that use external imagehosts like imagevenue etc but with google images etc you get an idea of what harvesting the web really means. Runs smoother and faster than cooliris on my xp pc. Cooliris was getting rather heavy.The other outwit addons are also worth looking at. Thank you.
Good idea, too bad it only works on a very limited number of sites. I could only get it to show pictures from 1 of a dozen sites that I tried. Uninstalled.
Excelent BUT forgot an important feature almost every other image extension has.
Reupload selected pictures to several image hosts
THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE ABSOLUTE BEST IMAGE DOWNLOADING ADDON I HAVE EVER USED IN MY LIFE... i may only be 18, but when it comes to getting what i want in an addon, i browse EVERYTHING to find the BEST ONE THERE IS...and this HANDS DOWN is THE BEST!!! i have just reasently come upon THE UBER BEST OPTION COMBO POSSIBLE...so NOW i can automatically DOWNLOAD ALL OF THE PIX AUTOMATICALLY JUST BY GOING TO THE URL...THAT IS EPICLY AWESOME...I WOUDNT EVER DREAM OF USING ANY OTHER IMAGE DOWNLOADER FOR FIREFOX...HANDS DOWN THE BEST ONE... you have a DETICATED user for LIFE...keep up the EPICLY AWESOME WORK... one side note though...the auto saving and saving doesnt seem to be working 100 percent of the time, so if you could look into that it would make it even better, minor side note
Apart from some grumpy photographers who have never heard of public domain images, I beleive everybody will love this extension. I discovered it by chance and I wonder why it is not more advertised.
please renew Outwit Images,outwit Hub,outwit Docs to the version of Mozilla 3.5
Useful addon, thank you! :)
A few remarks, however:
- license agreement: what is it about? why do I have to accept this, whereas I don't need for other addons? It is very long and I don't have time to read it all.
- need to click twice: when viewing thumbnails, the first click shows a bigger thumbnail, then clicking on the '+' icon shows the photo fitting the screen. What's the point of the intermediary thumbnails? This makes the experience slower and less pleasant.
- option to *not* enlarge: I like when photos use the maximum screen size possible, but sometimes zooming produces ugly artifacts. I would like an option to disable enlarging pictures to avoid this.
- exif info: less important, but it would be useful to see some exif information about the photos: aperture, focal length, shutter speed, iso, etc.
I really need to know if it works on sites like Flickr (the kind that place a transparent .gif file on top of the real image) does anyone know? Until then I'm sticking to Cooliris
The Catch option is great because I can save lots of time by not having to click on links to images.
attractive, simple and sleek interface.
i like the scroll bar.
The idea of an image browser is not new, but what differentiates this extension from all other image browsers is the option to "catch" the thumbnails and save them as the high-resolution pictures they represent. Moreover, the clean and simple user interface of this program have given me no reason to continue searching for other image extensions. it was a pleasant surprise stumbling on application and I would highly recommend its use.
I have been looking for an application like this for quite sometime now. I have a guilty pleasure of putting beautiful women on my desktop background and outwit images has virtually revolutionized how i do this with the Catch function (excellent idea btw) and the automatic option to make a thumbnail my bg.
I've just uninstalled this add-on after trying it out on a few different types of galleries & it's failure to work on most of them. It seems like most of the work on this app was put into the user interface and less into functionality. The catch is a really great idea. The exploration page looks good & works pretty well although I'm not sure why you can't choose for it to scroll vertically and I can't tell how it chooses to sort the images since the thumbs are all jumbled in with other page images. It seems that it was primarily designed for image search results because it did work well on Google Images. The only thumbs there that had no hi-res counterpart were images that had been removed. And it did pull the thumbs from the continuing pages of results. But that was just Google. On other galleries I tried, it failed, miserably. One was a gallery where each thumb linked to a PAGE with the hi-res image but OutWit could only get the thumbs. A couple more were VERY simple galleries but OutWit would not even show the thumbs, just the other page images, even after changing the setting in Options to show all image sizes. Maybe this was because the thumbs on those pages were small crops and not just the entire image reduced in size. There are also no help files for this add-on that I could find, even on the website, only for OutWit Hub which does not work quite the same apparently. It also doesn't seem to quite work with my theme (on both FF & Windows) which is Old Factory Black. Some of the text on buttons & tabs is very hard to read. Maybe this runs better on other versions of FF. Mine is 3.0.8. This add-on need quite a bit of work, more on function and less on looks. Here are some suggestions.
1. Help, Help, Help. - If it not working right because of a setting or user error, how can we know what to do without some documentation.
2. Options - There are good ones there but some more could be useful like an option to filter images from the initial page that are not embedded in a link. That could help keep useless clutter down. The option to scroll the exploration page vertically would be nice. And also the option to run this in a tab instead of opening another window. And the option to limit how many consecutive pages deep it goes to pull images.
3. The ability to get the hi-res image from a page that the thumbs link goes to. How hard could that be? It is almost always the largest image on the page. You could fix two of the problems I mentioned by showing this image on the exploration page with a small image of the thumb that linked to it overladen in the corner of it if they don't match. (man, I wish I could write apps)
Anyway, that's it I guess. If this app works for your specific purposes, I'm glad. But for me, I need something that can handle a larger variety of gallery types and already have much simpler add-ons that work with those I encounter most.
ce serait supersi je voyais plus grand - les coloris m'ont l'air magnifiques (en petit)
Finally an image browser for Linux!!! I would recommend this extension cus I can download thousands of pictures with only a single click of the mouse. The Catch bar is genius. One suggestion though: you should be able to select multiple thumbnails to drag into the Catch bar. Other than that though this is an awesome app. Thanks ;)
cool image browser. i like the "catch" function. worth downloading for sure
this addon has been an enormous help for surfing for web pictures but most importantly, SAVING them at the same time without having to press back all the time. The idea is so simple but it's the first I've found.
no longer appliable
i think this is a great product and i would recommend it to those who spend too much time doing google searches for pictures then having to click on the image to open the page to then open the image to then right click and save it. I can honestly say that I have not found an equivalent on the web for collecting images quickly and easily.
