Hi Tino and the KoboToolbox Team,

 

We are trying to download all photos from our the project.  There are at least 1000 photos recording from the project.   It have been sitting as “Pending…” for some time now.  We’ve tried it several times since 1500 hours on Thursday.  Is this a back-end issue?  We were also backing up all photos to Google, but the screenshots were not renamed properly, so we would need the source file naming to correlate to location.

 

Thanks!

 

Sam

Hi Sam and Rajeev,

We've found a solution for you to download the images on your account. This is a temporary approach while we are working on a better solution for very large image-based projects such as yours. I've just emailed you the detailed instructions specific to your accounts and projects. 

Anyone else unable to download images with the normal ZIP download option please send us a message including the URL to your specific data collection project where the image download is not possible and we'll help you out. We'll soon have a long-term solution for downloading very large numbers of media files. 

Best,
Tino

H Tino,

I didn't receive any response on my query yet.

Kindly re send.

Many thanks.

Hi Raj,
I just sent you the specific instructions for your project. It seems we mixed up two different queries on the same topic. 

Anyone with very large photo or video projects currently unable to download their media through the regular ZIP file export, please send us a message at sup...@kobotoolbox.org and we'll help you out right away.

Best,
Tino

Hai Sam, I think I found the same problem like you. Have you got any solution ? If yes, would you mind to share the solution with me? 

Thanks.

Hi Septi,

Please send us a separate message to sup...@kobotoolbox.org with the URL to your data collection project (which will include both the ID of your project and your username). With this we can send your photos through a different avenue. 

Best,
Tino

Hello Sam,

I trust that you are fine. I am stuck with data, I am unable to download pictures from Kobo for one of our projects. Did you finally get a solution to this issue? I need help.

Thank you.

Tom

Hi all,

I tried downloading bulk of images based on the instruction from this site http://help.kobotoolbox.org/managing-your-project-s-data/data-exports/downloading-photos-and-other-media

Unfortunately, DownThemAll extension is no longer available on Firefox. I tried to use download smart but got a message saying " failed to find any media'. 

I could access the images individually  from the excel hyperlink but haven't been able to download all images at once.

I was in the the htm page that I saved on the desktop when I start the Download Smart.  Has anyone one encountered the same issue? 

Cheers
