    If you know of a free scraper let me know. I only know of a paid one.

    Link didn't work man.

    Well i'm looking for a way to get a lot of images in a short period of time, I want to scrap them from google images and image sites like that and reuse them in instagram.
    SSing them would be less efficient than just right clicking and saving the image.

    You have to replace "HASHTAG" with the actual hashtag for the link to work. Try this:

    My phrasing in the thread was wrong i rewrote it.
    So i'm not actually looking to get the images from instagram, i want to get images so i can upload them to instagram.

    Just spend the money to get scrapebox, it will be well worth it. Then use scrape boxes built in google images scraper to get the job done. I don't know of any free tool that does this well.

    The thing is i'm just starting this whole instagram thing and i don't know if i can even get a return on it so i don't want to invest unless i know i can get money back from instagram.

    Edit: but yea i've been looking around and havent found any so scrapebox would be my only option.

    I can tell you first hand there are people banking hard with instagram if that's what you are waiting to hear? Early bird gets the worm, get super sonic.
