3 Tools to Download Pictures from Tumblr Blogs

tumblrTumblr is a popular micro-blogging platform and social networking website suitable for short blog posts. Most Tumblr users use Tumblr blogs, called a "tumblelog”, to post multimedia content. Because it’s okay to post only images without any textual content on a tumblelog, this blogging platform is popular among photographers, artist, graphic designers and creators of different types of multimedia content. You can follow any Tumblr blog via RSS feeds, but if you wish to download and save images to your computer, you’ll have to use one of the following tools.

DownloadTumblr is a free, portable and open source tool that allows you to download as many images you want from Tumblr blogs. Simply enter the name of the Tumblr blog and the number of pages you want the program to parse, and then click on the “Scan for pics” button. The program will list the URL of all images found, and on your action download them to the directory of your choice. The only drawback is that you can’t preview the images before downloading.

However, instead of actually downloading the images it only returns the URL of the images found. It’s your job to download them whatever way you prefer. The links are automatically saved to a text file within the program directory.

Within the program directory is a text file called accounts.txt. Edit this file and enter the names of the Tumblr blogs you want to download images from. Then double click on tubmlr.jar to start downloading the images. Unliked the rest of the lot, tumblr-downloader will download images from only the first page of the Tumblr blogs.
