The next time you're skimming Facebook and run across pictures your friends have posted, there's no need to monkey around asking for copies via email. Use Photograbber to snag them right off Facebook yourself.
Once installed, Photograbber searches your friends' Wall posts for any pictures they've tagged and posted — that's tagged photos of you and tagged photos of your friends. Choose which friend's photos you want, click download, and that's it. They'll automatically be dumped to your desktop unless you specify another location.
A couple of things to know: First, Photograbber doesn't display thumbnail images of pictures so if you just do a blind download you won't know ahead of time what pictures you're getting. Instead, visit your friend's Facebook page first to get a glimpse.
Second, downloading pictures with Photograbber is an all-or-nothing affair. You can't pre-select which photos you want — you'll get them all. On the other hand, that's a real time saver if you're trying to grab all 219 photos of your mum from Aunt Clara's birthday party.
Last, Facebook photos are among the most compressed images on the planet, so don't expect to get any print-quality images out of it. Photograbber can only download pictures if your friends privacy settings allow. As long as their profile and application settings allow for "'Everyone' or 'Only Friends' to see and share photos", you should be good to go.
Do you like the idea of being able to grab your friends pictures in bulk right from their Facebook accounts? Are you hoping for a dream tool that lets you do something else cool with Facebook pics, like secretly nuke the ones where your eyes are closed? Talk about it in the comments.
