    I need a bot for scraping 9gag images.
    The bot must be able to download and remove watermark and must name the file exactly like it was on 9gag.
    I will pay only after I see the working bot.
    No newbies please. Only reputed members.


    Thanks for reading.

    Hi, I can build a software to scrape images from the site, but removing watermark is the complex part of coding. If you need only the scraping part, then I can do that. You can check my previous work of a image scraper that download product images from google here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWSNj7Py7pc

    Add me on skype: codebreaker911

    Thanks

    IMO, it's too difficult to code it to remove the watermark on every single image automatically. If you want only the image scraper, I can do that.

    What the guys are saying.

    Removing the watermarks is another ball game !

    only i can imagine to remove the watermark is to cut about 20 pixels off the image.. which would still prove difficult because the watermark is inconsistently on the left or right sides. i could code the image scraper easy and probably the image slicer if needed.

    your better of splitting it into two bots or in one bot as separate functions eg
    1.scrape pictures save to file
    2.work through pictures and remove watermark.

    oh and op I doubt many people will create a bot for you send you it and then wait for payment
