Seems that this program doesn't work properly. It doesn't download anything.

DeviantArt broke a bunch of the feature with their latest updates (paying for full resolution file for instance).
And sadly, I hadn't had the time so far to investigate and find work around unless Deviantart's developers finally decide to work with 3rd parties developers rather than against them.

It had completely downloaded 28/280 images before showing the following error:
Error contacting devianArt: Read timed out.
What should i do to fix it?
Thank you

Great tool, thanks a lot for it!
Unfortunately the %collection% tag doesn't work for some reason, all collections are saved to the same (main) folder, although I use the following
syntax: C:\Users\Raimanojaku\deviantART\%user%\%collection%\%artist%%title%%filename%
Am I doing something wrong?

I downloaded this and installed it, but it doesn't work. And most of the files are zipped, but when I try to unzip them using either winrar or 7zip, all I get are a bunch of errors. What am I doing wrong?

Dragoniade, after searching for bulk/batch image downloaders specifically to save full to medium resolution images from deviantART, your program beat them all. It calculates the exact same amount of total images from an artist's gallery and does not download the same file like in the other programs such as Neodownloader.
It worked like a charm for a few downloads of a whole gallery until I got this error message: 'Error contacting deviantART: Read time out.'. Since then I am able to download not a single file from any gallery. Please look into it!

I'll look into adding the ability to log in into an account to acces mature labeled deviation.
Seem the disabled them on public feed.

... I wasn't referring to Mature-labelled deviations (which are accessed by the downloader just fine right now, BTW). "SWF" is the file extension for shockwave files.

Strange thing that I've found out: The profile page for Matsu-sensei says there are 2000+ deviations in the gallery, but when I bulk-downloaded the whole gallery with this helpful tool, I only got about 1200 deviations in the resulting pack. And that's with the deviations in the scraps category. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi there,, could you please answer a question for me, will this program download the highest resolution file of each deviation in a users account or is it only the low res display images? (if that makes sense)
Reply
:icondragoniade:
Dragoniade Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014
Since DA changed how hi-resolution are downloaded, it will only download the medium resolution version of a  deviation.
I got to find the time to bypass their linking protection.

Oh i see, sorry I didn't realize you made this program, thank you so much it works really really well! It would be really awesome if you could get it downloading the high rez files, I've been looking for a program like this for years, there are stock resources I would love to have access to without needing an internet connection :) Thanks again, and great work!

UI Change Request: Hi Dragoniade, I love this program a lot!  Use it every time I add something new to my favorites gallery.  However, I think it would look nicer if the download window was attached to the main window, like on the top bar.

Did something change in this program recently?
I had been using it to grab galleries, but now it wont grab full resolution images. basically it only grabs the preview from the deviation page.

No, but deviantart may have changed something in their end.

I love this app, use it several times a week. I am in a location with terrible wifi signal right now, I'm not sure if that would affect the results. if you can tell me whether it is a DA thing I'd greatly appreciate it.

You have no idea how helpful this piece of software is.
Thank you very much, Dragoniade. If I could give one suggestion, I would say the option to organize the folder also in the dA Categories automatically. Just an idea for a future update.

Thanks again!

Hmmm, is it possible to make a request that would be particularly useful for stock downloads? I would love it if this thing had the option to save .htm shortcut files/links in the in the same folder as the images to the image page (not a link to the file) as well (named the same as the image file) for purposes of crediting the stock provider later. I think there are a lot of people on here that would find that a useful feature being that there are a lot of artists on here that like to use stock references on here like myself... not to mention all the photo manipulators. Then stock providers would probably recommend this app because it would make remembering what page an image came from a non-issue in the link-back process.

Please make it if you have time! :)

You can upload those as deviation? I thought you could only upload pictures format, flv movies and documents in PDF or html format.

Can you pinpoint to somewhere where there is such deviation?

deviations such as visual styles are usually uploaded as zips and rars, I would love it if you can give us the ability to filter these things. :)

I tried pica downloader, but you have to pay to keep using it, the updated version doesn't work with the profiles you find for dA and it's a b*#$ to setup.
:woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:
This is simple and gets the job done. Awesome job. I wish everyone knew about this. Should be the #1 result in google search. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hi! ive been trying to use the program today (because its amazing) and have been getting 'Error contacting deviantart: Read timed out'. It seems to get 'stuck' on an image and then stop and give me this error code. If i skip the image i can download other images but as i have to skip 60 at a time im assuming im missing out on a lot of inbetween images. What am i doing wrong?
