OKay ... so most of you have probably figured this out already ...

... but y'know those wonderful picspams that people spend hours putting together and then you have to spend hours right clicking and saving each image? I just found a quicker way of downloading all the images using Word.

Now this only works for the picspams that have the images all their normal size, but it just saved me an hour or so with a couple.

What you do is select the whole post, copy it and paste it into Word, then save the document as a web page. It then saves all the piccies out as files.

It even does animated gifs!

I am sure this is old news to some, but it was new to me, so I thought I'd share.

[Edit: you can also save the webpage and it does the same thing, but it will of course save icons and other images too :) Thanks alyse for pointing out the blindingly obvious, which I had completely missed ::g::]
