This utility will search Met-Art for free sample galleries and post the results back here. While it searches you can download images from Met-Art free samples, by gallery, model or the lot. Any duplicates will be skipped provided you do not move them outside of the file structure that’s created when they are initially downloaded.
As of June 09 all of Met-Art has been searched and all galleries found. Therefore at present Met-Art cracker does not search Met-Art for additional galleries.

How to use….
Well you can’t really go wrong.
When you click connect the util will start searching met art for unknown free galleries. At this point you can just minimise it or use the image viewer to go through the galleries and download at will.
It should be obvious that you can only use this program when connected to the Internet.

You don’t need this program at all, it’s got a nice down loader in it and if you run it over night it’ll probably find a load of galleries, and download a few hundred met art models… while you sleep)
As of May 2010 Met-Art cracker knows more than 94 thousand photos from thousands of galleries, comprising over a thousand models with a download size of over 15GB.
All images within this utility are taken directly from Met Art and I assume copyright of Met Art.
