How to Save/Download Images from IMDb website (simple trick)


              IMDb ( Internet Movie Database ) is an online database of information related to movies,actors,television shows,production crew personnel,video games and fictional characters featured in visual entertainament media. It is also a place where you find High definiton images of your favourite celebrities in huge number.

Few people (like me) visit Imdb to view (and download) images rather than reading reviews of any movie or game.But unfortunatley,like most of the websites do, Imdb too disabled the right click option on images which inturn results disabling the image downloads,which is very hard to digest.Though you can download them using "save whole page " option in your browser but,the quality of image how ever reduces.Sometimes you may just get the thumbnails of images you needed.

     Whatever guyz,you need not to worry about all these ..'coz there is an alternative through which you can get Images of original quality from the website and this post is all about,

"How to Download Images from IMDb.com ?"                                                                   

It is a very simple trick and you feel the same when you get to know.

  • open IMDb website.
  • Type the name of actor/actress/fictional character/movie in the search box provided beside the logo of the site,which you wish to see and hit enter.
  • The search result provides you few links,among which you can choose your desired one.
  • Below the topic ,you will find few more links viz.,Photos,Videos,articles,full cast and crew and many more.
  • On clicking Photos,you'll be redirected to the page containing photos .And there you can have a thumbnail view of images(photos).Click on the Image you'd like to download.
  • Now,you'll be able to view enlarged image.(try to right click it...but you won't get a list of options which means it is disabled so that users can't download images from the website).
  • Press and hold Ctrl key and then press 'u' key( which means Ctrl U or Ctrl+u ),that takes you to newly opened tab where you can see bunch of code over there.Just ignore it.
  • Or,you can also try this by right clicking anywhere on the page except where image exists,and then choose "View page source" option which lands you on new tab containing huge code.
  • After that,search for  " .jpg "  in the page containing code which is done by pressing and holding  Ctrl key and then F key( Ctrl f or Ctrl +f  ) there in the search box provided at the top right of the page and then hit enter on keyboard.
  • The search result highlights the lines of code which consists ".jpg".
  • All you need is to scroll down to the 19th line of code (as the numbers are indicated on the very left side of each line of code) or simply check for the very first occuring ".jpg" result.
  • Click on that link ,which now opens a new window with your desired Image/ Photo perfectly with original Resolution that you can download with ease.I think you know how to download an image :) (smiling) if not, then just press ctrl + s,which saves the image on current page to your hard disk.
That's it guyz,wasn't that easy,downloading images from IMDb ?  Hope you liked it :) keep reading and  don't forget to share it in your streams :)

But in the evening or later itz horrible to gaze at screen for even few minutes. what say?Yes?why to get blinded by your computer screen ? why not install F.Lux and stay safe?

  • makes the colour of your computer display adapt to the time of day,warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
  • when the sunsets,f.lux automatically changes the colour of display look alike your indoor lights and again in the morning when sunrises ,it makes the things look normal.
  • You give it the place where you live and what kind of lighting you prefer to have on your display,F.lux will do the rest.
Download it here for free.

After the downloading and installing has completed,you have to adjust the settings in the application.A small icon appears at the bottom right of your screen( if you are using windows based operating system),on clicking(right clicking) it,you can view the interface of application.Click on change settings which is at the top right corner of the interface.

   → Next,to set your location,just click on the change button.

when you click on the change button,a new pop-up window appears which asks you to enter the Zip code of your city or your latitude and longitude.. 


If you don't know what's your exact latitude and longitudinal position,just enter the zip code and hit locate button,which inturn takes you to stereopsis.com website where it asks your city name,when you enter the name,it checks for your location and gives you the exact latitudinal and longitudinal position.It also provides the facilty to copy/cut it  which you can paste in the previously popped-up window.After that click Ok.That's it we are almost done.

→ The other option which is not so important is,the transistion speed which you can set it as fast/slow as you wish.

→ Last but not the least,an option to disable this app for an hour or more.This is useful 'cause when you need to work on photoshop or any other light based work,brightness/colour of the screen is all matters.So,mark this option when you like to disable and unmark it to enable.

 That's all about F.Lux mates.Though you can use anti glare cover over screen to protect your eyes,this is just an alternative when you are travelling.Or when you can't afford to purchase the anti glare cover,this software surely serves you the best.This app is also available for ipads and mobiles.visit this website for more info.

                  Hello friends,you would be spending major portion of the day organising and scheduling your plans  and might be busy with your time and trying not to waste a single second ...hope my post helps you to reduce the wastage of  valuable time while dealing with the mails.

                                              Everyone with an email id gets number of mails by subscribing to kind of forums,blogs or even say facebook(notifications),
which may be very useful and important or sometimes may be useless .,  Locating your important mail from the hundreds or thousands of mails and reading it becomes a hard task. Also, the inbox will be filled with unsorted mails which sometimes may be left unread unknowingly.So to get rid of these overheads, Gmail has provided a facility to sort out (group)the mails by subject,sender etc..using filters.

steps to create labels using filters : (Updated)  

  • First of all open the mail for which you are going to create a filter.

  • Now,click the drop down menu which is located exactly beside the "reply"button and click on Filter messages like this.

  • A small new window opens showing the details of sender (mail) and at the bottom right you'll find an option saying create filter with this search , go click it.

    click on image to get better view
  •  The  window shows many options,just mark skip the inbox option and to create a new label mark Apply the label and there click on New label.It launches a small window asking you to name the label you are about to create. Name it and don't forget to mark "also apply the filter to matching messages".
  •  click on Create Filter. That's it, a filter of your desired mails is created with a label.

  • In the same way you can create many such filters which reduces your time to go through whole inbox.The created filters appear as shown in the image below.

And coming to advantages of these filters,you can not only empty your inbox safely  but also track useless mails that are to be ignored or deleted completely.

Isn't that easy to do ? Yes ?Keep reading and please do comment and share if possible :)
