I have looked around the Internet for picture downloader programs and
I listed here as many as I could. Since I believe the picture download
utility kind of program is very popular, so that may be why only one
program is freeware, and all the rest are shareware (try for a while,
then pay to get the password for the full features). My
recommendations would be Iphoto, Picaloader and Nici, since they seem
to have the most features. But on a tight budget, Advanced Pic Hunter
would do. I considered the prices Cons since there is such a thing as
freeware, but unfortunately that seems non-existent at the moment
except for one. Other cons are mainly that some programs can have less
features than the others.
