Grabbing images from google image search?
|Steve Lim||07/20/2004 05:39 am|
|Hi, I am trying to find some software that will do a good job of grabbing the `fullsize` images from googles` wonderful image search function.
Here is a URL example of one of the search results..
if you click on one of the thumbnails.. you go to another page with a link to the `full sized image`
. These are the images that I am interested in filtering and keeping.
I have tried teleport pro and it fails miserably to filter out what I don`t want.
It seems to me also to ignore the images with the links containing `google` in the URL, although I need those pages because they point to the ones I want. I hope this makes sense.
Is there a way to do this? what are the settings please?

|I think, you can try to use URL Substitutes feature for that to load exactly image links from the search results page. Go to the Properties - Advanced and click URL Substitutes button.
Add the following rules:
(keep this field empty)
Check the "Apply all matching rules" box.
Click OK button. Now go to the Project section in the Properties dialog, set Level to 1, go to File Filters | Images - select "Load using URL Filters settings", go to URL Filters | Server, select Custom Configuration and add:
to the Excluded keywords list.
Click OK button to save the Project and download it. This should work well.

Thanks for your prompt reply. Did you try the suggestion you posted? For me, it seems to not download anything. It must be failing somewhere.

|Yes, it worked for me. Please try again. If this doesn`t help, can I send the Project settings to the E-mail you used when posting in this forum?

|Please try to setup a Project with that URL, Level=0 and allow script calculations in the Project Propertis - Advanced. Perhaps, this will help.
