*** NEW IN VERSION 2.0 ***

Main features:

• download pictures from a Tumblr account (likes / posts)

NOTE: if an account doesn't share likes, you will not be able to download them.

IMPORTANT NOTE: this app uses Tumblr API, it doesn't scrape pages for pictures, so it's compliant with the Tumblr terms of use. But, just in case, don't misuse this app!

What's New

Version 2.1

Thank you for using Tumblelog Picture Downloader and for your continued support.
We've received many emails about the app not working properly lately. Unfortunately this was not an app's fault but an issue due to incompatibilities with newer versions of macOs. We worked hard to fix it and make everything work again.
We also noticed that lately Tumblr changed something in their API that prevented the app from downloading pictures under some conditions. We also took care of this issue.
Hopefully the app should be working fine now.

Does what it says

It provides the basics well. It allows you to download all the images from a tumblr blog. You can even filter your download by tags. Unfortunately it does not tag the files that it downloads. I would give it 5 stars if it added the tags to the image using the new Spotlight tags. Or even OpenMeta 2.0 tags. It would also be great if you could pull up your history/log of what you’ve downloaded. Sometimes I forget where I saved a blog and this would be a nice way to keep track.

Blown away

I can appreciate that this app isn’t perfect, but my first use of it—which ended 20 minutes ago—was such a success that I had to give it 5 stars. It grabbed EVERY pic, at the highest available resolution, from one of those "continuous scrolling” blogs (the kind where as you scroll down the page, earlier pics appear, so you have to keep scrolling forever to get ALL the pics on screen). I just entered the blog’s address and sat back—it was freakin’ magic.

Useful but flawed

This app works reasonably well at downloading images from Tumblr blogs. But it has a very bad memory leak which shows up when downloading larger blogs and can crash your Mac if allowed to seize all of memory. The lack of an update in 2.5 years is not reassuring.

It has a limited ability to skip downloading some images (it caps out at 9999) this could easily be improved. Even better would be the ability to set either a date or number range for downloads. This would bea huge plus for capturing updates to blogs.
