The Best Alternative to
google-images-download for the Moment

Unfortunately, the google-images-download is dead due to the restriction of Google. So it is not convenient to download bulks of images from the Internet.

Thus, I found this alternative python script:

Install

git clone https://github.com/ultralytics/flickr_scraper
cd flickr_scraper
pip install -U -r requirements.txt

Use

Request a Flickr API key: https://www.flickr.com/services/apps/create/apply

Write your API key and secret in flickr_scraper.py L9-L10:

key = ''
secret = ''

Download images

once you set up your environment, let’s move on to the command usage

python flickr_scraper.py --search 'your_key_words' --n 10 --download#If your keyword include a space, please replace the space with _(underline) or the program won't download images# --n 10 is to download 10 images, you can change to any number you want but please make sure don't overuse it, or you may be banned from flickr

All the images will be saved in flickr_scraper/images
