    Hey folks,

    where do you guys scrape content for your accounts? I usually scrape tumblr blogs but cropping is tedious and the qualifity sometimes sucks balls.

    How strict is IG with scraping and reposting other IG accounts? Any other sources to get a large amount of HQ niche related pics or videos?

    Emphasis on large amounts and scraping. I know I can punch in my niche in google image search and manually download the first 20 pages but this is not what I am looking for.

    Cheers.

    I scrape content from as many niche related IG accounts I can find. Then I run all photos through the Hash manager software to change the MD5, so my photos appear unique on Instagram. I always give credit to the owner. Never had any problems so far.

    Hash manager and MD5, completely forgot about that. Thanks! Which scraper do you use and what is the quality of the scraped images like?Most images I have scraped off IG so far look pretty shitty...

    I usually target RSS feeds, but some rather go with authority social profiles and target the entire accounts photos.

    There are a lot of ways scrape, sometimes directories aren't as quality in comparison to secret sources.
