Option to download images in WebScraper

WebScraper for Mac now has the option to download and save images in a folder, as well as, or instead of, extracting data from the pages.

WebScraper crawls a whole website and it can extract information based on a class or id, or dump the content as html, plain text or markdown.

By just checking that box and choosing a download location, it can also dump all images to a local folder. That includes those found linked (the target of a regular hyperlink), those in a <img src , and those found in an srcset.

If you only want particular images, you can select only those which match a partial url or regex.

This functionality is in version 4.1.0 which is available now.

  1. Excellent! Just what I was looking for – the ability to archive images. A migration from TypePad to WordPress was particularly difficult due to the fact that SiteSucker could not suck high-res images from modal popup windows (a JavaScript action). Version 4.1.0 of WebScraper solves it!
