    Hey All,

    Downloaded scrapebox image grabber plugin and have been trying to download random twitter profile picture images. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to random peoples profile pictures? I'm getting images, but of most them are garbage... I know there are better keywords, strings I can use?

    I doubt it could be so sharp

    Well, Try just to put Keywords in it about some specific profession.

    Use surnames "Jones", "Davis" whatever. Then run them all through a macro in Irfanview [free].

    What is the purpose of running through irfanview... is it resizing? What is the macro aspect of irfranview... I got two programs.. irfranview and irfanview thumbnails...

    try "portraits of real people" as a keyword. Seems to bring up some interesting results.

    That's exactly what it can do. Crop and resize.
    Do this in bulk (tens of 1000's) it take s a few minutes and 70% may not be usable as the face won't be centred, but you'll still have created 1000's of usable portraits in whatever size and format you need and the whole process from scraping to finshed product will have taken maybe 30 minutes.
