Is it possible to download pictures from HTML links ?

#1 Post by borjepersson » 2019-01-20 12:48

Ok thsi might sound like a stupid question but I have a task that I need to do.

I'm using a web shop provider that is about to cease it service and I have some 4000 pictures on that site that I need to retrieve.
They can offer me a file with links to all the pictures but that is pretty much it.

I'm trying to create a command file to fetch the pictures, rename, and store them on a local disk.
Is is possible to do using FileZilla ?

Normally, I use this excellent program only to upload HTML scripts for my website.

Any tip is very much appreciated!

FileZilla cannot transfer using the command line. Furthermore, FileZilla doesn't support HTTP(S), which is probably the kind of URL that list contains.

What you need is a download manager that can crawl the HTML or raw text link list and download the extracted URLs. I don't use mainstream browsers so I really do not have any recommendations, sorry.

Ok ! Thank you for the quick reply.
I have got the URLS in a text document - so I will proceed to create a script to download the pictures and another to rename the once stored locally.
I haven't written scripts to execute in a windows environment in 30 years, but it's never to late to get started. - :D

My download manager (FDM) can import and process URL lists in text format. But I'm using the 3.x version. No idea if the current 5.x can do that, too.

For the command line, aria2, wget, curl.
