WebPictureBoss combines a wide range of picture tools for both online and offline use, all integrated into a single application.

The program includes a custom web browser that allows normal, standard web surfing, this lets you find pictures online in the normal manner. Once you have found a web page with interesting pictures just click on the pictures - but with the 'Ctrl' Key held down as well. This adds the selected picture to the Download Control, which displays thumbnails of all selected pictures in a scrollable list box.

The Download Control offers 'hands-free' download and save, which runs independently of the main web browser, so you can start the download and still continue 'surfing and picture selecting', throughout the web, adding as many pictures as you want. The download can also be 'Paused', 'Resumed' or 'Cancelled'. You can also remove items from the download at any time.

Other than selecting more pictures, there are other things that can be done during a download. The Download Control allows you to speedily 'flip back and forth' through all of the downloaded pictures, which it displays at nearly full screen size. The Download Control also can show the 'traditional' view of the downloading picture.

There is a thumbnail list box for easy picture access and organizing. It also allows you to create flexible, 'groups' of pictures - which you can save with a name of up to eighty characters in length. Only the links to files, and not the files themselves, are saved. So you can have the same picture in several groups with no duplication on disk.

The Slide Show Control allows three different display modes - full screen, main picture, and picture window. It also has Pause/Continue, Forward, Rewind, and adjustable speed. You can specify which pictures will be in the slide show and in what order they will appear - If you do a 'MasterList' slideshow. A 'File Browser' slide show will show all pictures in current folder, in their 'folder order'.
