dhIMG TwitterdhIMG Twitter is a free program that works on pretty much any computer running Microsoft Windows and allows you to download the images from a Twitter profile easily. This tool can be extremely handy if you are wanting to backup your Twitter profile and don't wish to save every image manually.


- Small program size
- Standalone application (no need to install)
- Quick downloading/backing up of Twitter images
- Always the highest quality picture downloaded
- Set where your downloads goto


Upon downloading dhIMG Twitter, you will need to extract the ZIP file (right-click and goto "Extract All"), then you can double-click the program ("dhIMG Twitter.exe") and launch it.

In Step 1, you will need to enter the username of the Twitter account you're wanting to save the images from. Only use the name and nothing else! (Note: This application will NOT work on locked accounts, so you will need to unlock your account for it to work on your own account!)
dhIMG Twitter

Once you've got the Twitter profile name and entered it into the name box, choose the maximum amount of images you want downloading and then click on the "Find Images..." button. This will take only a few moments and will find the images and prompt you that it has found the images once it's complete.

Now you will need to move onto Step 2, which is where you must specify where you want the images to be saved to - which you can do by clicking the "Save to..." button and selecting a folder.

Once you have selected a folder, then you can hit "RUN!" and sit back whilst the program does its magic. You will be prompted once again when all the images have been downloaded and the folder will automatically open.

Note: Duplicate images are NOT downloaded, so if you select "40" images and only 36 are downloaded, this means that 4 duplicates were found and not downloaded.

Hi! Great program! I was wondering if it were possible to download from the favorites. I favorite a lot of pictures that I like and it would be nice to download them all at once. I'll keep spreading the word about your great program!

Hello Daniel,

I haven't thought about downloading images from your favourites list, but I will see what I can do in a future version. :)

Hi, thanks for your program its a great one only problem is image download limitation can,t it be raised for more like 10 000 or something??? but good software ;)

Awesome program, you rock.

Awesome program, but is there a technical reason for limiting the downloads to 1000 images?

By CoolBruh


17th Apr 2016 16:20

wow - No probs. :)

Dhafing - Thank you for using my program. :)

KEI TOKUNAGA - Lost for words? ;)

Luis Ramos - Thank you very much! :)

? - The limit is to avoid problems coming from Twitter's side, mostly because Twitter gives limit errors/warnings.

Chet - Thanks! :D

CoolBruh - Thank you. :) The reason for the 1,000 images limit is because Twitter usually times out when trying to retrieve more than 1,000 (causing dhIMG Twitter to crash). I am looking at ways of getting around this limit for the next version.

doesnt seem to work for me... after typing in a name, it gets stuck "finding" forever, never allowing me to chose a location or "RUN!". At first i thought I just needed to wait, but after leaving it for a few hours, its still there. This is even with the lowest, 20 picture setting

I'm currently using another program which allows me to download over 3000 images at a time. But even that is not enough. I need to download about 70 000 images (why? I'm currently training my DNN AI and I need a lot of visual input to get better accuracy for my current project).

Hey! If I ask the limit is up to 1000. Can you change it?

Thanks for this program! Extremely helpful with the smaller twitter profiles, but quite hard for larger ones.

Any idea when you will be able to raise the maximum to say around 5000? Or perhaps a way to download 1000 at a time, but choose the parameters?

(Such as 1-1000, 1001-2000, 2001-3000, etc)? This would still limit the strain of the program of only downloading 1000 at a time, but it would allow me to download past the first 1000 photos.

how do you continue downloading from photo number 1000 onwards?

By roland


14th May 2017 12:15

To the ones asking about downloading more than 1000 photos. Didn't you read the entire text? The program don't download the same photo twice... So, when it end downloading 1000 photos, just put it to download 1000 photos again how many times you want.

Dale, this is a very good program. Thank you so much, you really saved me.

Thank you for this amazing program, it is one of the easiest to use and reliable bulk downloaders for twitter that I have found.
Would it be possible to add a feature that allows you to force the image finding process to start from a certain tweet ID and go backwards from there? It might be a good way to get around the 1000 image limit.

Unfortunately the program does not work on Windows 10. Spent 2 hours "Finding" images, program never responded.

Thanks so much for this program, though it can only download just over 1000 even though an account has more than that.
