So, is there an easy way to download all the pictures you uploaded to hubpages? I searched for a hub on this and checked out the image information section, but didn't find the answer. I know I can right-click and paste the images I've imported and I probably have all of these pictures SOMEWHERE, but is there a way to download the whole batch at once? I'd like to get organized and have all of my hubpages photos in one folder and not scattered all over my computer as they are now.
Thanks and cheers, Billie
I have wondered about that too - but the images I think in that folder have been resized. Am I correct?
Those are the images you have uploaded to Hubs, forums, and Questions/Answers. The sizes are the sizes you uploaded.
Writer Fox, I noticed once when I downloaded my hubs so that I had a copy saved, that the images were not the same size as those which I uploaded to the site. Is it not possible that these sizes are those which have been resized by HubPages? I would like to think I am wrong in fact I hope that I am.
Yes, Sally, images are reduced to a max width of 1024 pixels
HP automatically re-sizes pictures to a maximum of 520 pixels wide or 260 pixels wide if moved to the right. The re-sizing is proportional.
That's true, and if you right click an image and select "save as" from within a hub, the downloaded image will be 520 or 260 pixels wide. Zoomed images however are 1024 pixels or (or 520 pixels wide if moved to the right). A download manager downloads the zoomed versions. The zoomed version is what you view if you right click and select "view image" within a slide show (or double tap the image on a touch screen) or click on an image in the gallery (navigated to from the photo tab on your account page)
Thank you for this! Very helpful feature that I didn't know about at all.
If you're using Firefox, you can install a download manager such as DownThemAll. This is an add on which will allow you to list and download all your .jpg files associated with the http://hubpages.com/my/photos/gallery URL
oh, very cool, very cool...Thanks, I'll give it a try
Very useful, I would love to have all those images somewhere separate. Thank you.
Eugbug. It WORKED, It WORKED. I DID need my software husband to figure the last phase of the operation out for me, although if I had just had a little more patience, I could have figured it out myself. After I installed DownThemAll in Firefox, I had trouble finding it and figuring out what exactly to do with it. But in a FEW minutes, voila' I have all the pictures in one place. Interesting, side note. I must have kept uploading one image in each of my hubs (It was an identifier of the group) each time. I never really did use the gallery before. So thank you again. I think you should write a hub on this procedure. It takes a little finese. Thank goodness, my husband has that I'm going to run back over and make a contribution to the designer of that software - very helpful!
Glad it worked Billie, hopefully HubPages doesn't raise an eyebrow and have an issue with this!? Technically trying to list the contents of a web folder is defined as hacking although this isn't quite the same thing. And thanks for giving me an idea about writing a hub!
I hope they don't have a problem. I was just unpublishing a hub I had written many years ago and wanted to put all the pictures connected with those postings in one place. They're all mine, purchased or otherwise. There just didn't seem to be any place to download that gallery even though I have MOST of them in one place on my computer. All the web hosts I use, godaddy, web.com, etc. I believe have capability to download the pictures one has uploaded. I'll try to check that out. Cheers.
oops - and I just listed the name where I unpublished my hubs - It's supposed to be annoymous to the world, but I was signed in as "Katy". It doesn't matter because I'm taking everything under that name off. It's too hard to manage two accounts here - tee hee
Hi Sally (and anyone else who wants to know), the trick to recover your original size images is to alter the url of the image as you see it in your hub or list of photo gallery images. For example, one of my images has this url
because it was resized to 520 pixels wide for placement in a hub. The original file I uploaded was a png, and if I change the url to this
I can recover the original. In this case the original happens to be 911 pixels wide. You may have to change the "png" part to "jpg" or "gif" or whatever the file extension is of the original. If you can't remember the extension of the original, just do trial and error until you find the right one.
This is great information, but I can't figure out where to delete the _f520 from the filename before downloading if I'm using DownloadThemAll download manager. Does this work only if I download each image individually by right clicking and doing a "Save image as.."?
Thanks in advance for your help!

I recall my photos looking distinctly sharper in previous months on all of my Hubs. I hope we can return to the crisp image quality once displayed as a standard on HubPages.

How do I get the lettering on my MFP images to look sharp and clear? After using picmonkey.com, saving the pic, and uploading it on the hub, the letters are always fuzzy. It looks even worse sometimes after I publish...

I'm finding that image quality has declined recently whether the images are jpgs or pngs. The problem is bigger for graphics than photos. They are very blurry on HP but look sharp on desktop. The size of the image...

The feature in hubpages that saves pictures we've uploaded is really cool, but I've got a lot of duplicates because I've resized and edited images, etc. It would be cool to be able to delete the photos I'm not using,...
