Now and again, we all may want to download images from Reddit, but it can be time-consuming when its tie to go through a ton of pages on the website. Luckily for you, there is an app out there that was designed to solve this problem, and it is called Reddit Image Grabber, or RIG for short. Before going forward, just bear in mind the tool requires every user to have a Reddit account, along with access to the API. Once everything is in place, users can download hundreds of images in no time, and for whatever purpose.

We should point out that the user interface isn’t the best looking, at least, from our point of view. However, we always say the looks don’t matter with simple utilities like this one. If it works as intended, then who cares, right?
Download Reddit images in bulk
Reddit Image Grabber is a free bulk downloader for Reddit. You can download saved Reddit images in bulk easily. Using the Reddit Image Grabber tool for Windows 10 is very easy, but first, the user must connect it with their Reddit account before moving forward. Then you need to:
- Get the API
- Choose where to download images from.
Let us look at this in more detail.
1] Get the API
Before going any further, you will need to get the Reddit API for the app. To get this done, visit the website, and sign in right away. Go the section that says Preferences, and then navigate to Create App. The next step, then, is to select “Are you a developer? Create app“ from the menu.
A form should now be visible on your screen, so please complete it, and then click on Create App to finish the process.
Be sure to copy the Personal Use Script and paste it into the correct section in Reddit Image Grabber. Do the same for the secret code, then click on File > Save Settings.
2] Choose where to download images from
Wait a minute before grabbing images, please. First, you must select the correct subreddit, the number of images to download (bear in mind that choosing 999 could get you banned on Reddit), pick the category, and from there, hit the Grab Images button.
Depending on the size of the pictures and the number, things could take a while to get done, therefore, we recommend staying away from mobile data, and only use Wi-Fi or a wired connection.
