Skins.be Downloader 0.4.7

With Skins.be Downloader you can easily download wallpapers from Skins.be

Just enter the page number, an existing download folder and the preferred resolutions you would like to download cool. Since version 0.4a it even has the option of specifying whom's wallpapers you would like to download (default is everyone)! After downloading you can use my Skins.be Archiver to order the downloads into a nice folder structure.

I have tested the Linux version on a virtual Ubuntu machine and it, besides some visual glitches, works perfect (the filenames where also written with a / in front but that is corrected in 0.4.4). I guess it also workes on OS/X but that I cannot test myself.

Known bugs/problems:

- If you download the 1024x768 resolution the random walls which are also on the page will also be downloaded. Although this is hardly as problem I will try to fix this in a next version!

- Besides Björk I noticed another exception which I needed to add (AnnaSophie Robb). In the future version 0.5 the exceptions will be stored externaly for easy maintenance.
