Is there a way to download all the images from a particular website?

I'd like to download all the images of a particular resolution (1440x900) from this wallpaper website. Their interface is just so clunky, and saving images individually takes forever. Is there an easy way to do this?

I'm running a new Macbook Air, if that makes any difference. (It means that this solution won't work for me. Plus, I don't have a lot of programming experience.)

Which browser do you use? The DownThemAll! extension for Firefox does exactly this.

The script that your solution links to will work for you. Ruby is already installed on OS X by default, but you'll need to install wget, which is easy using Homebew (their example uses wget) and the ruby gem Nokogiri (gem install nokogiri). You'll want to change a few things in the script for your specific needs (Resolution, Output_Directory). If you have some programming experience (which I'm guessing because you say you don't have a lot) then I think this is mostly straightforward.
