I simply wanted to get back my whole gallery as a backup
When I tried to upload to a test gallery I got errors
I also deleted a folder on Smugmug after I had downloaded my gallery with windownload
I though no problems I have it --- windownlaod retrieved all the gallery
But no the files I wanted to upload back (that were lost -- deleted)
were rejected by smugmug
See error msg above
I fixed the jpegs with Lighroom :)
My HD has no issues
The FF plugin retrieves ALL my gallery easily and as original and CAN be uploaded back to smugmug with no probs.

Windownload did something to the retrieved files YES any jpeg viewer or editor PS CS5 or Picasa viewed them fine but damn Smugmug did NOT want them back
I just downloaded and then uploaded with no problems using windownload. Windownload is not the issue here. It works fine. Is there a way to post or send me the file you are trying to upload? The problem lies somewhere else besides windownload.

Hi David -- great tool, and woot, Keyword support, just what I was looking for.

I found what may be a minor bug. The "header row" at the top of the lists of albums has a checkbox in the top-left corner. I thought checking it would trigger a "select all" and check all of the albums, but right now it just toggles the first album off or on.

Ideally I would be able to select all albums and then Load Keywords and just grab the photos of one particular child. (This is for my son's preschool.)

Let me know if you know about this bug already, and if there's a fix. But even without the fix, it's a tremendous tool. Thanks a lot!!

Album Descriptions
Hi, is there any way to save the album description along with everything else? I get how the image captions are saved in metadata in the images, but what about the description for the album as a whole? Is there any way to save this text in the same folder as all the images, perhaps as a text file?

"Original" images not downloading
WinDownload is a great tool, exactly what I needed! However, I'm having one problem: When I select "Original" for SmugMug Image Size, I am not getting the full-size images. They all seem to be coming down as X3Large size, in that the portrait ones are all exactly 1200 pixels tall, and the landscape ones are all 1600 pixels wide.

I have my galleries set to a maximum size of X3Large for visitors, but I am logging in to WinDownload with my owner password, so I assume WinDownload should be able to access my Original images. Any ideas?

Problem logging as an owner
Hi David,

Great program! However, at the moment I can only download public galleries. Attempting to pass an owner password to get my private galleries gives me the following error:

Error Login in. SmugMug Error calling smugmug.albums.get: invalid API key

Any idea of what is wrong?

Thanks

It looks like you found a bug. I will be releasing a new version soon.

How to get to a password required album
First let me say that I really dig Windownload and appreciate the time taken to code it!!!! It is the ONLY mass downloader that I have gotten to work.

I have come across one thing that I can't figure out...

For the site - the main site has no password but the single album does. I can't figure out what is to be entered in the login screens to get to this album. For example's sake, let's say...
Nickname = Test123 (which comes from http://trip123.smugmug.com)
Album Name= Group 1/Trip to Vegas 2012
Password = ABC123

On the "Load a User's Album List" dialog box, I enter as follows:
> click the Album List radio button; put Test123 in the Nickname field; click the No Password radio button
> click the Single Album radio button; put Group-1/Trip-to-Vegas-2012 in Album Key field; put ABC123 in the Album Password field
> click Retrieve Album List

Windownload then pauses for a moment, then pops the dialog box, "Error Logging in. Index was outside the bounds of the array."

So what am I doing wrong?

Hi,
I'm guessing this software is exactly what I am needing (download all of my photos that is on my smugmug site)
but when I run the software it says "Load a users album list" enter Nickname, I've tried my login details, my album name, my name etc but keeps saying "error invalid user"
what do I enter to download photos?
btw my site has no passwords

which one are you using Nick?

have to say I'm less than impressed with the inability to download more than one gallery at a time without 3rd party software.

Getting the same 'API error' message on this one, and most of the others don't let you sort by gallery name, which after 8 years here has become a LONG list for me.

If only the Lightroom plugin worked in both ways....

Same happened to me. I wanted to use the "owner" password in order to get hidden images as well.

But aside from this bug I would like to thank the developer for all the effort put into this program. Really useful :)

winDownload problem...
why does WinDownLoad download the watermarks on my images...instead of clean originals?

I have until 12-12 to get all my galleries downloaded.

downloading as galleries will help with the next upload as they will all be gallery order and much more easily found rather than looking thru 10 yrs of files on various hard drives.

thanx
