Does the template download files? Is it just the album names that you want fixed?

Current vk.com has only album template and it does download files, but it has a bug - every photo in the album downloads 4 times in different sizes.

So I need help with the template to download all albums from the same user, preferably so that every album has it's own original, non-numerical name.

Thanks

Do you, by any chance, know a proxy server I could use to access vk.com? I cannot access it directly - the website is blocked in my country.

There is a program called Psiphon. Both for Win and Android. Seems quite good and reliable

Thanks. Looks like the program works. I'll let you know if I'll be able to fix the template.

Also is it possible to request to add some project management features:

1) search project bar (by project name, links)
2) sort projects by order - old/new (important!) and by largest/smallest amount of downloads

This is gonna be super useful

Thank you

OK, I updated the template and the program to actually work properly with vk.com:

vk.com - download photo album template

So, first of all, you'll need the most recent version of the program:

https://www.webimagedownloader.com/download/

Most important improvement - only best-resolution images are saved now and album titles are used for folder names instead of album IDs.

But I couldn't make the program go through all album addresses automatically, so the template page has a little tutorial showing how to use Extreme Picture Finder's built-in browser to export all album addresses from user "Photo albums" page.

Please try it and let me know it if works for you.

I'm not the OP, but I tried your template, and it works perfectly, thanks!
By the way, the tutorial is clear and understandable, I'm usually pretty bad with new apps and programs, and even I could browse albums and download their content as I wanted.
