Image Sources

Image sources are websites on which the images are hosted. Only one source can be checked at once. But the program can run multiple instances. Just reconfigure to the new settings that you want after you pressed start.

1. Image sources category “Social media”.

2. Image sources category “Image directories”.

3. Image sources category “Other”.

 

Profiles and keywords

4. This is where you add your keywords and profiles. Use the textbox where it says “Put keyword here” in the image and then press the button that say “Add keyword”. You can add multiple keywords/profiles/URLs.

You can also use the button that say “Add from file” to import a list with keywords in the following format. Do not mix different formats in the same file (like Instagram profiles and keywords).

 

Some image sources require different formats (profiles, keywords, URLs etc). The program will tell you which one it is. For more information about what syntax each website requires, see the specific image source below. For some sources the user have to tell the program what type of format you want to use ex. Instagram profiles or keywords.

 

Save folder

5. Pressing this button will open a folder browser dialog where the user chooses a folder to save the downloaded images to.

File name

6. Here users can set their own names of the image files. If no name is set, the program will use either the keyword or simply “image” (URLs and such can sometimes not be set as a filename).

Maximum amount of images

7. Here users can set a maximum amount of images to be downloaded. Some image sources can’t download as many images as others. If no limit is set by the user, the program will attempt to download as many as possible. It’s recommended to always set this limit as some sources can get up to ~10k images but is not as reliable. See the different image sources below for an estimate of how many images that can be downloaded from a specific source.

Account info

8. Some image sources require the user to sing into a user account to access the images. Here is where the user puts this information.

Log info

9. This area is used to display log-information from the program like image info, timestamps, images downloaded and errors etc.

Lower area

10. In this area a preview of the images are displayed. Using the tabs the user can add watermarks or set up a proxy (recommended to only use proxies if you really have to.) and the changelogs.
