Picture Ace can download any types of files (e.g. zip archives, executables, PDF documents). In this tutorial you will learn how to configure Picture Ace to collect all ZIP files from a web page.
First, you should define a new set of predefined properties. Although you can create a new task without defining a set of predefined properties, but if downloading ZIP files is a fairly frequent procedure for you, it is more convenient to have a predefined properties set.
Select Cars as the current destination folder, then open Picture Ace and select Options -> Predefined Task Properties from the main menu. The Predefined Task Properties dialog opens.
Click the Add button to create a new set of predefined properties. Enter Save all ZIPs as the set name.
Click OK. The Task Properties dialog appears. Switch to the File Type tab and select ZIP Archives in the Select file type(s) to download field.
Click OK. The new set of predefined properties is added to the Predefined properties list. Click OK to apply the changes and close the Predefined Task Properties dialog.
That's it. Now we are ready to pick ZIP files from web pages. This web page contains ZIP-archived pictures of cars. If your web browser is Internet Explorer use the IE button menu to start ZIP-files downloading task.
Another way to start the task is through the IE context menu. Right-click on a blank spot of the web page and select New Task. In the Task Properties dialog select Save all ZIPs in the drop-list box below. Click OK to start the task.
Below there are ZIP-files that Picture Ace will find and download automatically:
BMW pictures ZIP archive 1
BMW pictures ZIP archive 2
BMW pictures ZIP archive 3
In a the same way you can configure the program to download any other file type, just set the correct extension when creating a set of predefined properties.
