Extreme Picture Finder version history
- Improved support for password-protected websites. User name and password are not sent as a part of URL any more. Now the HTTP headers are used to send basic authentication information.
- Built-in image viewer improved. Now it works much faster and doesn't consume a lot of memory.
- Default search mode now is "Full-size images".
- Only images that are approximately of the same size as the full-size image are now saved as "Related images" in the built-in search. No more website graphics, avatars and other unrelated pictures in search results. Plus duplicated related images are not saved for different full-size images.
- "Related images" are now shown as thumbnails under the bigger image preview.
- More information in the "Monitor" window - new statuses for every download to give better idea of what does the program with any URL right now
- New way to work with the list of starting addresses in the Download Project Properties window - the way you work with normal text (including copy/paste). Plus [Import...], [Export...] and [Generate...] button under the list for easier access.
