    A while ago I bought FollowLiker, and just saw the option "saving photo to disk" or something like that, but can't seem to get it to work.

    It does scrape the pictures to the list, but it is not downloading them.

    Any solutions? Thanks

    Hi,

    if you look FL user guide, you will find the info how to save photos.
    You should use checkbox "Save photos to disk" while scraping photos with "Scrape photo" task. Default project folder: ...\My Documents\Follow Liker\Saved Images .

    Good luck!

    I've check the "Save photo to disk" box, but It is not downloading them, the only running task is "Scrape" and the photo ARE getting scrape, but they are not saved in disk.

    Use 4k stogram software. Exactly does what u need and it can scrape all the photos at once

    I haven't used this function, so, sorry, I don't know if it really works :)

    But I can give you another key - USE scraped photo IDs to download images with additional tool.

    Anyway, I think you should create a ticket to FL support and ask them why this doesn't work.
    I've found few other bugs that should be fixed too. Hopefully they can improve that.

    4k stogram works great in free version allows you do download photos from only 2 accounts simultaneous and only 2 times each user ...
    if anyone have a cracked version .... ??

    Try it in your laptop? Working fine for me.

    You don't need a VPS to run it.

    Are you trying to scrape photos from protected user? If yes then you have to login to IG via 4k stogram. To do this go to edit<preferences and enter your login details

    I want it to use a VPS beacause my PC has super slow internet speed.
    And no, it was not a protected user.

    It gave a open gl 2.0 error if I recall correctly

    Anyways, I downloaded another software and its working fine.
    Thanks for all your answers.
