Scraping/Downloading images

Post by mrwhite » Wed Feb 16, 2011 7:09 pm

Hi,

I just watched your video on scraping Craigslist. Can you show me a video where it also scrapes images found in the listing? Does it only scrape the url of the image or can it download the image file itself?

I just uploaded a video right here that shows how to use the Craigslist file to download pictures. You might also find helpful to see the documentation, particularly this file (or Actions -> Extract).

Here is the Craigslist file:

Thanks for that explanation. I also didn't think to look in the project options menu where the download folder is defined.

This scraper is pretty slick so far!
