Picture Patrol is a program for Windows and Mac OS that automatically extracts pictures from thousands of articles posted in Usenet newsgroups. It builds huge collections of free pictures overnight, using a simple interface to replace what once was a time-consuming task with essentially some settings and a few mouse clicks. Unlike ordinary newsreaders that require your constant intervention, Picture Patrol independently downloads articles from your favorite newsgroups, decodes pictures attached to them and saves these images into the directories you set, neatly grouped by date and newsgroup. Features include: user-defined collections of newsgroups, support for more than one news server, automatic group circulation after a number of articles, minutes or pictures, freedom to choose where each collection will be stored, creation of unique filenames and protection against corrupted files, making the program quite stable.
