    Wondering if the following is possible on FollowLiker:

    I'd like to repost images from a certain hashtag, various users. I'd like the system to post the images with a caption "Photo Credit: <insert user here>".

    Can FL do this automatically? Can it download the images, upload the images, know which user it belongs to, and upload the caption giving the appropriate credit?

    FL isn't that smart to automate all that.

    Anyone have suggestions for a workflow to accomplish something similar?

    Well it doesn't take that long to set up FLs share function with the specific image. Of course it always depends on how many images you plan to upload per week.
    But here's what I would do for a start:

    1. scrape the images based on the certain hashtag
    2. put this in your clipboard: "Photo Credit: "
    3. setup the share function in FL
    4. find out the usernames to your scraped images (it's easy the number after the _ is always the user ID, just use iconosquare or any database or userscraper to find out the username)
    5. After that it's basically a copy and paste game.

    Just take a few hours on the weekend, listening to some music, while you setup the pictures for the next week.
