    Once you've configured your scrape users/photos, what do you do with the list it generates? Do I need to export/import on to another account or keep it on current account... and do something with it.

    Import the users to the second account under - Scrape User Settings?

    ... not sure where else to upload them, but then imo it doesn't make sense to that! So I don't know.

    Make sure you have the 'show advance options' checked. You import it to Scraped photos. That is the second next tab when you go to 'custom settings > wizard'

    those are needed steps for following or liking, you can't follow people without scraping user ids first or you can't like photos without scraping photo ids first, i think that's what you meant and not just the scraping itself

    Advanced options are set. Maybe I am confused on the logic of what occurs behind the curtains.

    competitors image + followers > scraped > users followers/liked/comment > targeted by following/liking/commenting.

    Might be easier if I just upload a screen shot haha

    I don't follow your post above this. Here is a different explanation. To like any photos, you need to scrape user's id first and than their photos. This is a two step process. It's a bit of a pain with FL.
    For example. If you want to like and comment on your competitor's follower's photos.

    You would need to scrape your competitor's followers. When done, you will have a list of scraped users under 'Scraped Users'.
    Export it to desktop.
    Import the file to any of your acc that you want to like and or comment under 'Scraped Photos.'

    When you are doing scraping, it is best to open another instance of FL and do scraping only. This will scrape at a faster rate. Make sure for this instance you have automation Interval set to 0 - 0 in file>general>settings. The reason behind opening a second instance instead of using your other instance while it's doing their like,comment,follow, etc is that your automation interval is set with some minutes delay. This cause for a slow scraping results.

    You don't need another acc to do scraping. You can open multiple instances and use any accs you have. Just remember you can have only one acc running on one instance. FL won't let you create two same accs running on the same instance.

    I don't know the real answer to your second question. I have used accs to scraped while it is doing other actions using the same ip it is set too. If I have to guess, you should be okay to scrape and not get ban.

    You can do all these with the FLC option. You don't have to do it manually.
