I have requested some images from a supplier so that I can upload to the new site. They have sent me an FTP link so that I can download the images I need from their catalogue. Great I thought until I tried to download the images and its sooooooooooooooo slow, I can drink a few cups of tea and I still haven’t managed to download and save an image. Does anyone know of a faster more effiicient way of transferring images from an FTP link as I just can’t spend all day trying to download images and we have a few hundred images that we need!
Many thanks for any help and advice you can give.

I did sucessfully use Store Manager for Magento for this task
Do you work for Store Manager by any chance matjaz?
Every other reply is a link to their product…. It’s getting a bit silly now. Take that as a polite nudge.
FTP can be slow at times and you don’t need the tool mentioned above.
Assuming you’re using FileZilla, follow these steps:
1. Click on File > then “Site Manager”
2. Then click on your saved profile
3. Then the “Transfer Settings” tab
4. Tick the box to limit the number of connections
5. Change the max number of connections to 10
6. Press OK
I’ve popped a screenshot below to highlight these two options. SimpleServers allows up to 10 concurrent connections and this will mean that uploads and downloads will work much faster.
If you get warnings appear when downloading from the suppliers FTP about exceeding the maximum number of connections, change the maximum number to 8 and try again. And you may need to go down again as well depending on their settings.
Hope that helps,
