    You're on Instagram and you see a picture you'd like to repost to one of your accounts. You put down your phone and head to your computer. Find the image, open it in a new tab, right-click and view the page source. Scroll scroll scroll until you find the image URL, copy and paste it into a new tab, then save. Send it to yourself. Think of a caption, hashtags, etc. Then post it.

    And that's for one picture.

    What if you want to download a post that has multiple images or videos? What if you want to download multiple posts from the same username or hashtag?

    Scraping Instagram is difficult on purpose. But it doesn't have to be.

    ☆ I have developed a completely FREE Instagram Scraping Tool, launched exclusively for BHW members, that can cut an insane amount of time from your post gathering process!

    Current Features:
    * Download any Instagram Post (posts with multiple images/videos supported as well)
    * Download all Instagram Posts by a certain Hashtag (images/videos exported to zip file or post data exported to excel)
    * Download all Instagram Posts by a certain Username (images/videos exported to zip file or post data exported to an excel)
    * Post data shown for each post (including: likes, number of comments, caption, etc.)
    * Track previously downloaded posts
    * Shareable collections
    * Mobile friendly


    Coming Soon: (and potentially already live by the time you read this)
    * Change hash of downloaded images!
    * Scrape profile data - search usernames and get back email, phone, website, etc. (when publicly available)

    * I'm taking suggestions for feature requests & overall improvements so if there's anything you'd like me to add just let me know!

    ◇ If you use it, please come back and post your feedback, it would help a lot!
    -------------------------------------------

    Note: There is currently a limit on how many posts you can download at a time. If you're interested in having that limit increased please post here so I can guage interest.

    F.AQ.
    Q.
    This tool is great! How is this FREE?
    A. I released this tool on BHW to give back to the community. Over the past few months, I've had to upgrade the server several times based on the usage it's been getting, but I've been happy to cover those costs. I plan to keep it free as long as possible, but will probably have to charge for at least some portion of the tool in the future. When this happens, all current users will have to pay to use the premium features of Vurku...

    △ That Being Said...
    Post "I LOVE VURKU!" to get a 40% off discount code for when Vurku becomes a paid tool. Don't miss out on this, post now!

    Need to get in touch?
    The best way to get in touch with me is to post on this thread! You can also PM me and I'll respond as soon as I can. Two additional ways to contact me are the contact form on the website as well as [​IMG]

    Refund Policy / Terms: (This section is only being included because a refund policy is required for every BST) Since Instagram is continually updating / changing, there are no guarantees given to Vurku being fully functional at all times. This is a free tool. If you come across an unknown error, please report it to me and I'll fix it as soon as I can. Since this is not a paid tool, no refunds can be given at this time.

    Summary
    For the review, I tested out all of the features that are currently in @KraftyKyle's web-based IG tool. The details of my review are below.

    Service Highlights
    • I first tested out the standard download tool, which was at the top of the page. I pasted a URL into the URL field, hit the download button, and the tool took me to a page where I could right click and save the image from the IG post.
    • The next tool I tested out was the "download by hashtag" tool. I set the tool to search a specific hashtag for 10 images only. Once the tool was finished, I was sent to a page where I could either download the images individually, download all of them at once, or download the post data to an Excel file. Downloading all of the images resulted in my computer downloading an zip file with all of the images. Downloading the images individually just took me to a page where I could right click and save them.
    • The third tool I tried out was the "download posts by username" tool. Again, I arrived on a similar page as the last tool, and everything worked the same way as well.
    What Could Use Improvement
    • The tool works just as described, so there aren't any real problems I could list other than some suggestions on improving the tool. For instance, I would've liked the individual downloader better if it provided me with the option to just download the image/video right away instead of taking me to a page where I could right click and download it (much like how it worked when I bulk downloaded the images).
    Additional Information
    • If you couldn't tell by now, this BST is a bit different from the others since it's a free tool for the time being. I've consulted with some of the other marketplace mods, and there's apparently nothing that we could find prohibiting a seller from doing this. However, I've asked the seller OP to add some additional details to their thread to make their plans as transparent as possible (e.g., which users will be affected if the OP decides to charge for the tool).
    For buyers: The quality of the product or service that I receive is what you should expect, or better. If you feel that the quality of the service has dropped significantly, please let us know via the report button.
