    I subscribed a magazine on Facebook. This magazine is composed by PNG pictures that I am allowed to see it using FB and my PC. No fast way to print or read them off-line.
    When I click on one picture, my Firefox browser show this URL (data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhE as so on) on the address bar.
    Basically I am able to save the image on my hard disc but it is a very boring task because I have near 300 images for one single iussue.
    I am looking for a software that can download all this images and save them in high quality format on hard drive.
    I've already tried Bulk Image Downloader but it is not able to catch this kind of images (data:image/png;base64)
    This is an example of the page in which you can see the magazine pages. I would like to download the images in an easy way.
    Any suggestion?

    Ok now I won't get technical but this is how it works.

    When someone creates an app on facebook they host it on their own server and link it on the facebook app dashboard.

    Now if you try , you can find where the app is being hosted. (By viewing the page's source)

    Usually it's something like website.com/appname/

    Once you find this you can simply paste it on your browser and access the app directly without having to go through facebook.

    Now here's the final step. Download WinHTTrack and download the whole app and it's content with that.

    I'm not 100% this will work, because I don't know which app you're referring to. But it should do the job.

    PHP Scripting ;)
    I assume this is an app inside Facebook. How many pages are these 300 pictures split into? I can make a script to get the images for you as long as I get the source. Scraping from facebook is not going to be that easy so we need to think something else.

    Anyways, let us talk : repulsorbhw
