You’ve probably already tried to download images on Aliexpress but these were impossible to open? Find out how to do it easily with AliSave.
Even if you can import images and videos directly from Oberlo to your Shopify store, you may need to download them for various reasons.
It is a pity that Aliexpress suppliers are providing more and more pretty images and photos of their products…
The problem arises at that moment, when you want to download them. Instead of receiving a correct JPEG image, you get a corrupted version that is impossible to open and on which you cannot work.
But fortunately for us, there are effective methods and plugins to download the images and videos from Aliexpress.
Download images & videos with AliSave
There are many Chrome extensions dedicated to Aliexpress to find trendy products or simplify the use of the platform. There is also one that will allow you to obtain in one click all the photos on any product sheet.

How does AliSave work?
AliSave works in the easiest way: once you have downloaded and installed the extension, just go to an Aliexpress product sheet.
Without taking care of the few sections that are added with other extensions I have, you can see two small icons on the choice of variants and preview images.

For example, if you want a single picture of a product sheet, you just have to click on « Capture selected area » and validate. Once this is done, you come across this interface:
An interface that allows you to make some modifications and match the image to what you want, you get once validated, a JPEG image.
