Download full size images from coppermine photo gallery

Post by vegetoandme »

I'm trying to download all the pictures from a couple of celebrity picture sites. But when I start the project with "download all images from website," it only downloads the thumbnails and not the full pics.

What do I need to change to get the full size pics?

If it helps the websites are
https://www.katygallery.com/index.php
https://scarlett-johansson.net/photos/index.php

Download full size images from coppermine photo gallery

Both websites you mention use Coppermine photo gallery software to show the galleries. And we have created a generic template that works on any website with Coppermine. Here it is:

Coppermine photo gallery template

After downloading and installing the above template create a new project and paste your website address into the [ Create New Project ] window. Then click the [ Next > ] button:

Here you need to select the [ Use settings from template ] option and select the [ Coppermine photo gallery template ], just like shown in the above screenshot. After that you can click the [ Finish ] button to start downloading full-size photos.

Please try it and let me know if it worked for you.

Thank you, that was the problem and the template worked.

But I have a follow up question. If I only want to download the pictures from a single category, like "photoshoots and portraits" or if I want to exclude a category, i.e., download every picture except for the ones in the "public appearances" category, how would I do that?

If you want to exclude any part of the website - use [ Excluded URLs ] filters. This template allows it. For example:

/index\.php\?cat=2$
/index\.php\?cat=112$

I still can't get the inclusions/exclusion to work.

For taylorpictures.net, I started the project with the coppermine template. I only want to download the pictures from the "photoshoots" category, so in included urls, I put "/index.php?cat=269". I additionally wanted to exclude anything from the "candids" category, so I added "/index.php?cat=25" to excluded urls.

I started the project and it continues to download everything, ignoring my inclusions and exclusions. What am I doing wrong?

Every line in both [ Excluded URLs ] and [ Included URLs ] is treated as a Regular Expression. This means you must follow the Regular Expressions syntax where both "?" and "." are special characters, which must be "escaped" if you want them to act like regular characters. So, if you want to exclude

/index.php?cat=269

then your filter must look like this:

/index\.php\?cat=269

Information about Regular Expression is available in Extreme Picture Finder's help file. Press [ F1 ] to open it.

Another thing to look out for: if you want to download only one specific part of a website - you must exclude "the rest of the website" first and then add Regular Expressions that match the addresses you want Extreme Picture Finder to crawl. In your case, you should exclude all category URLs:

/index\.php\?cat=\d+

and then add to the [ Included URLs ] only categories you want:

/index\.php\?cat=25
