RustyJ (145) For me very important as I'm really more into pics than videos. Downloading them one by one is huge pain and smells like intentional thing to force one to stay member.

lk2fireone (196) Very important for sites that are primarily photo sites, like metart, femjoy, mplstudios, etc., which do offer videos, but their main value is in the photos.

Less important for sites which are strong in both videos and photos. But who wants the frustration of downloading a photo set photo by photo?

For video sites where the photos are low quality and not worth keeping, zip files are least useful. But maybe the site manager will wake up one day, realize the photos are poor, and try to get a better photographer. Do you believe in miracles?

rearadmiral (380) I'm not a big picture user but it makes no sense to offer picture sets without a zip option.

Capn (28) Vital for any photo based site.

Preferably user defined zips rather than the whole set too.

Cap'n. :0)

pat362 (373) I picked very important for the same reason that rearadmiral said but I also agree with lk2fireone that unless the quality is there then no one will want to download them.

Denner (235) A site without zip for photo sets is hopeless...so even more than 'important' - it's a must..or...

messmer (137) It's gotta have zip! No zip, no subscription ... that's for sites that are primarily photo sites.

BTW, since we are talking about zip files in this poll have a quick look at the webmaster's response to me under Lingerie BBW. Interesting reply to say the least.

pinkerton (39) Pics aren't so important to me these days but nice if they're zipped up for DL but not a dealbreaker for me

tangub (155) With my primary interest being photos i'm with messmer on this one....its unlikely i would subscribe to a photo site without zips. I just don't have the patience to manually save pics one by one these days although i used to in the early days.

Drooler (220) It's not important for a site to offer its content for easy download ... NOT!

Of course, zips of photos are of the utmost importance! I've dealt with sites that don't offer that easy download option, and I've had to resort to the more cumbersome use of a download manager -- when permitted, of course.

I've even run into a small number of pay sites that were regularly priced, but to my chagrin, had no zips and had prevented ANY downloading of anything! Boy, I really hated that!

otoh (54) I've said somewhat important. Of course it's very handy to have zips and luckily most sites do; but tastes are sometimes a little esoteric and as such I can't be quite so choosy as to discount any sites that don't have zips.

However, this is only with the caveat of using a download manager; where no zips are available, it's usually short work to set DTA to grab the whole set. If I did find a site that I truly could not batch download from, then I'd be unlikely to bother grabbing pics one by one.

As with Drooler, I've found one site so far that prevents any downloading - very not impressed, but with a bit of lateral thinking I managed to find a way to grab even those.

turboshaft (24) If it's a photo site, it damn well better have zip files, otherwise it's worthless!

RLane (16) Very very important. If there is a site that won't offer zip downloads there a good chance I won't join that site, but if it is a model I really like I might take the effort to download each picture.
