  1. I’m afraid this sympatic tool isn’t working anymore, each attempt to login into Pixiv result in the following error :

    I verified my logins manually and multiple times without success. It sadly don’t wanna work >_<

    1. > URLError(gaierror(11004, ‘getaddrinfo failed’

      Either your network/dns got issue or something blocking the application to connect to the internet.

      Are you using firewall/antivirus? Try to add exception/turn off just to test.

  2. hello i just stumbled on this pixiv downloader because I wanted to get rid of the hassle of taking forever to save pixiv images.. I downloaded the 7 zip tool to open .7z files, and then when i was able to open pixivultidownloader I extracted all the files to a folder and clicked pixivulti2.exe.

    Then a black box appeared and asked me to type my username and password for pixiv im assuming. I was able to type my username but it does not let me type my password for some reason. This program is all very new to me and I would like to know how to really use it I think im doing the right thing but im stuck not being able to type my pixiv password in the black box for some reason Please Help!! thank you! and after if im ever able to type my password can you tell me the things I need to do next in order to be able to download pixiv images? thanks!

    1. The password is typed, just hidden from the console (black box).
      Another way is by editing the config.ini using notepad and key in your login information on [Authentication] section.

  3. Hi,
    I did find ur first post when i was looking for a convenient way to download from pixiv. In this first post you say that that python etc. Is required. Is it still the case? I am writing this on my way. I would like to use this program of yours but I have no idea of phyton. If there is a easy way to install it I would immediately try when I get home. So could just write in short how to install it?
    Thanks Mate for your Effort

    1. If you download the exe version, you don’t need to install python.

      Just extract it to folder and run it directly. Remember to check the readme.txt

  4. hey, excellent software and a real time saver!

    i was wondering if you could include a feature that would allow the program to download from a list of IMAGE IDs.
    i have a collection of images from pixiv but i downloaded the compressed “master1200” versions without knowing.

    i’ve used the “dir > filename.txt” cmd command to generate a list of file names in my directory and used google sheets to extract out the file names

    ex.

    36518290_p0
    36518290_p1
    36518290_p2
    36573933_p0_master1200
    36573933_p1_master1200
    36573933_p2_master1200
    36573933_p3_master1200
    36573933_p4_master1200
    36999511_p0
    37252252_p0
    37254994_p0

    i was wondering if its possible to include a feature that would read a list like the above, only take the numbers in front of “_pXX” and download the original image.

    let me know what you think.
    thanks again!

          1. is it possible to get the program to read the page number as well “_pXX”?

            i spent a lot of time sorting through albums and dont want to do it all over again D:

          2. nope, too specific. Assuming the download folder doesn’t change, you can set alwaysCheckFileSize=True in config.ini and it will only download if the filesize is different.

  5. i have a problem when i start this program i can see these words…

    and it made “Error medium page for image 53389408.html”

    “Error medium page for image 53405144.html” something else….

    what should i do?

    thanks to read

    Thank you.

    1. >> ‘getaddrinfo failed’

      Usually this is because network problem. Can you open the site from browser? Are you using proxy?

  9. hi nandaka, i have downloaded the latest 20160211, then i cant log in, i used back my original username and password, and i m not allowed to enter. Then, i changed my password in pixiv and try to re-enter but still fail, do you any idea about iit? Thanks.

    1. the password won’t be shown when you enter in the console.

      Also you can key in the username and password in config.ini using notepad.

  10. Wonderful tool! I have sort of a problem though. I have the tool to save folders of images as (). EG: “或真じき (6139766)”. However, sometimes the artists will temporarily change their name and it will save it as a whole new folder like “或真じき@らいおんおいる (6139766)”. Is there anything I can do to fix this? I use the tool to rip about 620 artists, however I have over 740 folders. Is it possible to have the tool rename every folder to be just their artist ID #? Or will I need to find a windows tool for that?

    1. >> will I need to find a windows tool for that?

      You can find windows tool for renaming your folder.

      For future, maybe you can change the filename format in config.ini to use %member_token%, which doesn’t change.

  12. Is there a way to force the pixivutil to download the master files if available? I have a bunch of manually downloaded images from Pixiv that have a naming scheme like “xxxxxxx_p0_master1200.jpg”, and with pixivutil set to only use the filename from server, it will download the image as xxxxxxx_p0.jpg instead, and it also seems to be a smaller file size than what I had previously as the one with master1200 appended.

      1. While true in this case, I believe there are times where this is the opposite, as not every file I have manually downloaded via Pixiv has “_master1200” appended. But the files that do, are all bigger than the ones that pixivutil has downloaded. I’m looking for a sfw example now.

        1. And just to clarify, the resolution is the same, but the file size itself is bigger, like it uses a different compression or something.

          1. maybe, but larger filesize != higher quality. Most likely, the original images is re-compressed again without changing the resolution by the server. This will lower the quality for JPEG files.

            I prefer the original one uploaded by the user.

          2. How is it determining which one to download? The method I used to manually download was literally just clicking the image on the Pixiv page to expand it to full size and then dragging the image from the browser to a folder on my HDD.

            I’m mainly concerned about duplicates, because it will be a huge headache to deal with because of my lack of organization.

  13. Hello,

    I Just want to ask about proxy setting, I have tried write like this => http://0.19.7.255:8080 but no luck, when I see in the browser, the proxy setting was used for all protocol, how to setting this kind of proxy in pixiv downloader?

    ah btw thanks for making such usefull program~ 🙂

  14. Hello, can you tell, how to use this progs with proxy settings? couse in Russia there a most pixiv pages was bloced by RosKomNadzor something similar to CDA in USA, and can’t download some images 🙁

  15. I just want to say, you are really a life saver. I saved so much time thanks to this. Really, thank you.
