    I made some search but with no result. Till now I have found only scrapers that scrap the photo but without the description.
    So, does anyone know any facebook photo scraper that beside the photo takes even the description, title of the photo???
    If yes, pls suggest the program / bot here.
    Thnx

    Scraping Facebook is not going to work that easy I suppose. Are you talking about public photos of users?

    What inputs will you be giving? Profile link of the user?

    I can make a script using the FB API. There will be limitations/rate limits for sure. If you want to talk, add me in skype.

    I dont think there are anyothers bots doing the same. Not sure though.

    Thnx for the reply,
    I want to scrape photos from public, to be specific, I want to scrape photos from some specific pages that I have liked.
    They post all their photos with titles and description, like facts, how to, etc...
    So I want to scrape this photos, but together with the description that they have.
    I have some other scraping bots that do exact thing but without taking the description of the photo, they scrape the photos only with the file name that fb renamed them.
    Hope you understood me this time :)

    Just sent you a PM.

    For anyone else who is looking for this, I just tested/coded out a API based script. Working just fine. ;)

    Our software could potentially do this as a feature request. May look into this and add it.

    Depends on how you want it. I can code it how the client needs it to be.
