Flickr making NFSW Go Pro

Post by dakooga » 21 Mar 2022, 02:44

Flickr is making NSFW content require a pro account:

https://blog.flickr.net/en/2022/03/17/f ... ever-2022/

I looked through the templates and projects but couldn't find one that fit bill or I could modify to do what I wanted.

Basically I follow a number of people and would like to automagically grab their entire photostreams before they all get neutered/closed. I knwo I can do this one at a time but I figure there's probably a small tweak needed to the the user photostream scraper to start at the Flicker 'People You follow" then iterate through elements in the people you follow list (it's paginated).

The URl is https://www.flickr.com/people/USERID/contacts

Then save each group of files in ./followuserid/file.... type subfolder...

I could roll through the friend list and use each as the starting address but I've got about a 100 there and there's probably others thinking the same about grabbing everything whilst it's still there.

Well, it's a one-time job getting the addresses of people's photostreams. You can use the built-in browser to do it.

Create a project with your URL and absolutely any settings (better leave the default settings):

https://www.flickr.com/people/USERID/contacts

And turn [ Manual login ] on. Start the project and once your page is loaded switch to the [ Address list ] tab. Here you can use the [ Filter ] box to automatically select all photostream addresses and then the [ Export selected addresses... ] button to save them all to a text file.

Then use that text file to create a new project with the Flickr photostream template. The sub-folders Regular Expression is easy - you can add it after you create the project.

Hi maxim

Thanks For the reply. I did just that and entered multiple starting addresses into the Flickr photostream project. I modified the Regester so each stream was saved in it’s own subfolder based on the userid.. was very satisfying to work with.

I tried the pull the post or at least to it but it was correctly in moderation (had a few forums myself so totally understand)…
