"Grab" all sorts of images, sounds and other resources from
the programs on your PC and Internet Newsgroups!

The Resource-Grabber will scan the directories and drives on your computer and extract all Bitmaps, Button images ("Glyphs"), Icons, Cursors, JPG/JPEG images, sound files, video clips, animations, form images, webpages, text and other stuff it finds inside the programs and DLL files in any directory of your choice.

Forget painting all that stuff by yourself; forget hours of searching for Windows-compatible button layouts ... simply use the images that are already on your computer! (well-hidden, of course)..
The Resource-Grabber will extract thousands of them for you from their "hidden" locations inside DLL and EXE files at enormous speed and gives you full access by saving them as regular image/sound/video/.. files for you. And the NEW embedded "Newsgroup Grabber" will finally also allow scanning Internet Newsgroups for images, videos and sounds, too! See the screenshots below for a first impression.

This program is highly popular amongst developers because it saves so many hours.. just try it out by yourself!

Latest feature-additions include:
doesn't only scan 32 bit files (as clones do) but also 16 bit files and libraries for contents -> about 50% more images, sounds,.. than ever before!
the integrated Resource-Browser allows you to analyze and browse individual files for the "hidden" content inside them and to extract it in re-useable file formats
quickly re-scan files and directories
supports detection and extraction of many additional file formats, such as

  • HTML files
  • Cascading Style Sheets
  • GlF images
  • RichText (RTF) files
  • Batch files
  • plain text files
  • Executable files (COM, EXE, BAT)
  • dynamic libraries (TLB,..)
  • all generic animations and video clips (AVI, MPEG, VIV,..)
  • all generic sound file formats (Wave, MP3, Real Audio,..)
  • menu definitions
  • fonts
  • embedded Strings and messages
  • and more (please see help file)
better support for Cursor image extraction
better support for icon extraction and conversion
supports converting embedded binary dialog resources (forms, dialogs) to Bitmap- or JPEG-screendumps to allow "real world" display and analysis, program documentations etc.!
found strings can now be saved including their numeric resource ID
the NEW Newsgroup Grabber, a newsgroup image collector, now allows you to automatically scan predefined Internet newsgroups for binary files like GlF, JPEG, MPG and other files .. download 1000s of nice images while you're sleeping! - CHECK IT OUT! [Screenshot]
runs under all Windows 9x and Windows NT/2000 versions
allows to automatically convert icons to bitmaps
optionally creates "disabled" looking copies of your images
extracts forms ("windows")
many integrated conversion features (create bitmap button images from icons and cursors, "disabled" looking images and buttons, 3D-like buttons and more)

Ratings the Resource-Grabber has achieved:

The Resource-Grabber was the first 'ripping' program worldwide, and is regularly enhanced with useful and innovative features you won't find anywhere else. Well, it's made by developers - for you, other developers, and the awards it has received during the years underline its difference to other products that just try to copy the ideas we have put into it... ;-)

I got it !  Read what registered users say:

"My compliments on an excellent tool! I ran the demo and immediately bought it! I develop in Delphi, and going through directories, etc., is time-consuming and an energy drain. Resource-Grabber kills both those problems."
(Wayne McKittrick, Houston, USA)

"During the last days I tried a lot of different programs to grab icons, and as soon I saw your I went online to buy it: very, very very great! It was exactly what I need."
(Gregorio Loppi, Italy)

"I have just run the registered version - took over half an hour, but gave me 9378 images!! Very impressing, this tool is definitely worth the money! Keep up the good work!"
(Jason Barnes, Sydney, AU)

"Resource Grabber is truly one of the best utilities programs. This is the first time in all the long years I'm using the computer, that I can always find all my clipart handy & ready for use."
(Arik Amit, Israel)

"This is a really great utility. It's amazing what a wealth of icons and bitmaps remain hidden on everyone's disk!"
(Clark Farabaugh, Virginia Beach, USA)

"I did register ResGrabber, and I love it.
My programming language allows for great potential to integrate icons and images, yet like most people I lack any significant ability to render my own images from scratch. This product has helped me integrate icons and images for those final finishing touches that makes a good program great.
(Nicholas Z., Nevada, USA)
