Need some work done? Post a Project Today
I'm looking for a script that I can put on my desktop computer that will go and grab a large number of images from Google images (images.google.com) based on a keyterm that I type: Example "Wedding cakes". I should also be able to enter a list of keyterms to be used.
The program may have to have a time buffer that limits requests per minute.
The program will grab both the thumbnail and fullsized images and store them on my local drives (up to 10GB). It will also record the fullsized image's url, and pixel dimensions.
The program will allow me to view large grids of images (maybe 60 thumbnails per page) and select which ones to save. I'm thinking something like an HTML page with checkboxes under each image (and options to "check all" or "uncheck all") If I click on any thumbnail I see the larger size.
When I press save - the chosen images are moved to a new folder on my machine- the thumbnails go in one folder and the large images go in another folder - and all of the reviewed images are deleted from the temp folder. At the same time the image name, size, pixel size and original url of full sized image is recorded to a csv (or a db? - I would be interested in proposals on this).
Upon save, a check is made to see whether another image of same name exists. If it does, then both (or all if more than 2) images are shown on the screen and I can rename any (or all of them), or delete any or all of them. Alternatively I can choose to automatically have duplicates renamed sequentially image.gif, image2.gif, image3.gif, etc.
I am wary of spyware and trojans, and would be interested to hear how I can know that your solution is clean of these issues.
