|A pretty simple tutorial to download imgur wallpaper dump in 3 ways possible|
What’s more, Imgur is quite popular for Wallpaper dump (wallpaper pack). There is no limit on how many images you upload at once. With its unlimited bandwidth you can easily pack 12000+ images at once in a single post (brace your browser). If even you think I am kidding, here is this wallpaper pack. Now come to how you download these 12K images in once.
1. How to download Imgur images in ZIP file?
There are two possibilities to download the compressed archive, either the uploader (OP) post a link to mediafire/sendspace or Imgur allow you to tap on Download as ZIP file button. But, the first is very rare and second is not possible. But we can make it possible.
I am not 100% sure how it works but for any wallpaper pack listed on Imgur you can try downloading it as ZIP file. How?
A typical IMGUR album has /a/ in its URL. A typical IMGUR gallery has /gallery/ in URL.
In case of /a/ you can attach zip after the key following with “/” (without quotes). For eg – imgur.com/a/cV6Rr/zip
In case of gallery replace /gallery/ with /a/ and follow the above method.
But it’s rare that above method works (bandwidth, maybe?). So?
2. Using Google Chrome Extension Only
This is completely manual task but best for fewer images. Download this extension Save Tabbed Images from chrome extension store. This extension helps you to download images from multiple tabs.
|Download Save Tabbed Images from Chrome|
- Load any imgur page with multiple images, here for example.
- Now first let all the images load, and then follow the step.
- Hold Ctrl key and click LMB on images, this will open images in new tab.
- Once you hit the number of image you want to download, stop.
- Click on extension icon and it show you how number of loaded images
- You can choose to have a separate folder for images with your desired name too. But we're skipping it here.

- It starts downloading images in original quality all at once.
3. Boring? Use ImgDl.
ImgDl is amazing software (Windows) which let you download all image at once, without even compressing. Download the software and install it.
- Open the app and …
- In case of /gallery/ goto Options >> Download Source >> Imgur >> User Album List.

- On the app landing itself use folder source for the first text field.
- In second text field add URL for the gallery/album. Hit Download button to start the action.
- You can explore more options from the Option itself.
