Scrape images and save them into specific location facebook

by snrnsi1234 on Fri Aug 26, 2016 11:50 am

Hi, I'm new to IMacros and i have studied only the surface of the program watching youtube videos ^^

What i am trying to do is simple?
Save facebook pictures and user timeline

I know how to make it automatically go to the pictures pages of a certain user but my problem is that i don't know how to make imacros click on each picture and save them as an image file. And when the images are over, it should stop?
Facebook has this next picture button when i click on the picture and what i am trying to do is to make imacros click on that next image button till the image runs out and save them into a folder i've designated.

Also, when i try to take a screenshot of the user feed. THere are two problems.
1. I want imacros to scroll to the end of the page in facebook but since facebook doesnt load all the page in once and loads each page only when i reach the end of page, i'm not sure how i can capture them all
2. I want to also include all comments in the imacros page. So i will be taking automatic screenshots after imacros clicks for example, "show 3 more comments" i'm not sure how to make imacros click all of the "show more comments option" before it saves a screenshots.

LOL sorry if i asked too many questions.
I'll appreciate if anyone can help!
thanks in advance!

Pfff, sorry, CIM...! :mrgreen: ... for me to read...! If you haven't installed iMacros yet and are just asking some generic/is-it-possible? Qt's, then you should post in the 'General' Sub-Forum...
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
