There may be lots of times, when you use Google Image search to find and use images in our research and blog posts, but what if you want to download several images on a page at once? In such cases you might have to open each image, and then click on the link to view the original image before you can actually download it.
Multi Image Downloader is a freeware and portable software which will allow you to download multiple images from Google Image search at once, using a handy desktop interface.
To download all the images from Google search, you will need to copy the URL of the image search and paste it in the input box provided. If you want to start downloading images from the first page of the search results, make sure to add &start=0to the URL. The application will throw an error if the start parameter is missing from the URL.
Tip: If you only want to download stock images, checkout the options you can use to download copyright free images from Google Image search.
You can choose to download images from multiple pages, by changing the page counter and also select the type of images you want to download. Once you have selected the options, click on the Get Image linksbutton to begin scanning for images to be downloaded.

If you do not like a image, you can download it from the list by using the delete button. To download the images select the folder and click on the Download button.
Techie Buzz Verdict
Multi Image Downloader would be a really good software if it had an option to preview images within the software itself. Right now, you need to double click on the images to view them in a external web browser. A preview option would make it much more easier to choose images you want to download.
Another annoying thing about this app is that, it is set to stay on top, which means that it remains in front of other windows, even if another application is active. The only way to hide the download window, is to minimize it.
It would also be good if the developer would assume that start is 0, if it is missing, this would save users from having to type it out everytime they want to start downloading images from the first page.
We are going with a low rating for the software as it misses a much required preview pane, it would be really very useful once that feature is added to the app.
