Extracto Patronum?

Ok, yes. I lied. It's not extracto patronum. But in my defense, you shouldn't expecto much from me. 

Today's tech-tool covers a very specific scenario, but one that might come in handy when you need to get a lot done, but don't have a lot of time. 

I do web development for a living (if anyone's looking to make a new website, hit me up (please)), and in many occasions I've had to move a website over from one server to another. This involves moving a lot of text, and even more images that I have to right click.. download.. upload.. over and over again. Do you know how much time that takes?

Hint: a lot.

You know what doesn't take any time at all? Forwarding today's tech-letter. If anything, you need to be impressed by how smooth my transitions are.

This image is probably enough to explain what today's tech-tool does... but just for the sake of writing, let me go into a teeny bit of detail. 

In my experience having to work with images on websites, it involves having to open up specific webpages, downloading each of them one by one; and that's the part that hurts the most. 

Of course, mine is specific example. Imagine you need 7 images from an online article. Or you want to download images from someone's Facebook page, or Twitter, or even from a recipe website. It's a tedious process, especially if you're on your phone. 

This is where Extract Pics comes in. As you can tell from the image above, it allows you to enter a website URL (as vague as "choosemysmoothie.com", or as specific as "choosemysmoothie.com/pumpkin-pie-protein-smoothie/"), and download all of the images on that page in under 10 seconds. Here's what it looks like.

    Demonstrating extract.pics by downloading images from Choosemysmoothie.com

    All I did was enter the URL (for reference, choosemysmoothie.com/fall-smoothies), and it displayed all the images that are currently on that page, which are 12.

    Downloading them is significantly faster too. I can select the ones I want to download, or simply choose to download all. My favourite part is that it even shows you image sizes and their extensions (.jpg, .png). 

    There are no limits on how many times you can use this tool. You can even zoom into each of them (before downloading).

    That's it for today! Not much more I can say about this. It's an in-and-out tool, just like most should be. However, before I go, I did have one important question for you.

    Since The Tech-Letter is about me sharing tools use that help me be more productive, there are many Mac specific apps in my list. However, I am not sure what operating system most of my readers use. If the majority use Mac OS (MacBooks), I'd love to share some of my very frequently used tech-tools. 

    That being said...
