    Hi guys,

    I've been looking to take some content from Reddit (imgur) rather than other IG accounts so it's a bit more unique.

    Does anyone have a tool they use to do this?

    Thanks

    Op search in google for reddit image scarper if you can find working one. But you can hire someone to create a simple script to scrape images from reddit.

    I've found one that pulls all the links but nothing that takes the images from those imgur links and outputs to a file.

    There's a couple of GitHub links that look ok. This is partially to see if anyone else has this working and what set up they use.

    That's worked absolutely perfectly and it makes a nice noise when it finishes downloading. For anyone else wishing to do the same thing I used this website:

    http://www.kershner.org/scrape

    Downthemall and anticontainer on firefox.

    Thanks for the help guys!
