- This version adds the ability to enter an account password for ripping private albums (if you know the password).
What is this thing? -
PhotoFucket aims to be an all-in-one tool for getting images/videos from PhotoBucket.com - a popular image hosting site. By using various search methods, PhotoFucket is able to access content in both "public" and "private" albums.
Public albums can be completely downloaded with speed and ease.
Private albums are "fusked" for content. Fusking is a brute-force method of accessing PhotoBucket content by "guessing" the names of files (e.g. Image001.jpg, DSCN0001.jpg, Scan003.jpg).
Please rest assured that there are no illegal hacks going on here. PhotoFucket simply automates activities that could be carried out manually on any web browser. PhotoFucket just does it faster ... a lot faster ;)
Who is this for? -
Anyone and everyone! PhotoFucket is designed to be simple and intuitive enough for the casual user to enjoy. At the same time, PhotoFucket offers plenty of "tweaks" for power-users (with more to come in future releases). Who uses PhotoFucket? Indeed ...
What do I need to have? -
PhotoFucket should work fine for anyone with a Windows-based PC manufactured after 2000. Of course, you should expect slower performance with older PCs and faster performance with newer PCs. Here are the minimum system requirements:
Operating System: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista (32 & 64 bit)
Hardware: CPU - Intel x86-based architecture (Pentium III or equivalent); RAM - at least 128 MB
Network: Broadband Internet connection required
What about registering PhotoFucket?
By default, PhotoFucket offers a basic set of tools for searching PhotoBucket albums. However, some advanced features are not available unless the software is registered.
Registering PhotoFucket removes all limits on the software. The cost of registration is just $5 USD (Cheap!). In order to register, click the 'Registration' menu-bar tab and then select the appropriate function from the drop-down menu.
To maintain a high level of security, all payments are done through PayPal.
In most cases, you will receive your registration code via email within minutes of checking out through PayPal.
How about software updates?
PhotoFucket automatically checks once a day to see if an update has been released. If so, you will be prompted to get the latest version. You can also manually check for updates by clicking the 'Help' menu-bar tab and then selecting 'Check for Updates'.
Updating the software will not affect your registration status - your registration is valid for all future releases.
NOTE: If the software goes back to "unregistered" mode after you update, simply re-enter your registration information that you received in your email.
Do you provide support?
Yes! Registered users can send emails to request support. If you supported me with your $5, then the least I could do is return the favor and support you when you need it. If you have some feedback for me, if you're having a problem, if you found a bug ... let me know about it!
