Top 5 Image Download Extensions for Chrome

It is very easy to download images in Google Chrome. All you have to do is right-click and choose the ‘Save Image As’ option from the pop-up menu. Alternatively, you can also choose the ‘Open image in new tab’ option to download it in original resolution or just drag and drop it into a folder on your desktop. But what should you do if you want to download images on a page in bulk or just download a frame of the YouTube video you are watching? Here are some image download extensions for Chrome that will help to save images from most sites in bulk with just a few clicks.

The best Chrome extensions to download images

1. Click Image Downloader.

Better for: Replacing the right click save image option with a keyboard shortcut

As I said in the introduction, the native method of downloading an image in Chrome works fine for one or two images. Click on the Image Downloader extension for Chrome which saves you time by allowing you to save images with a keyboard shortcut. Just hold down the Shift key and right-click, which will save you a little bit of time. The extension works fine with Google Images and Bing, but not with other websites.

Another similar extension is the Shift-click Image Extractor It even shows a preview of the image while downloading it. However, since you open each image in a new tab first, 1 Click Image Downloader is a better and faster option.

2. Image Downloader

Better for: Mass download of images from any website

I have tried various bulk image downloaders and by far the Image Downloader Chrome extension is the best. It is open source and allows you to filter images by image width and height. Besides this, you can also access the URLs of all the images on a web page. The extension works for single and massive image downloads as you have the option to click and select only the images you want to download.

There is only one known issue with the extension. Sometimes it can detect and download the thumbnail of the image instead of the original size. However, you can open the selected images in a new tab and then download them, which solves the problem. If you still have frequent troubleshooting problems, Image Downloader is another extension (with the same name) that you can try.

3. Unsplash for Chrome

Better for: Download free high-resolution images that can be used without attribution

Unsplash is a great place to find free, high-resolution, non-stock images on the internet. These photos can be downloaded and used for free without any attribution. So if you use images frequently for your blog or just about anything else, this extension offers a quick way to search for them on Unsplash. The extension displays a series of images within a small window in the upper right corner, regardless of which web page you are on.

Final remarks: download images with Chrome extensions

There are other options, but these are some of the best Chrome extensions for downloading images in bulk. I personally use 1 Click Image Downloader as it allows me to bypass the ‘save as’ option. Choose one based on your specific needs. Don’t end up installing too many extensions that would slow down the browser.
