Automatically save images from image URLs

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Simon Wigzell, Dec 11, 2007.

  1. I have inherited a database driven website that comes with a table of image
    links. The images are scattered all of the internet and there are thousands
    of them. I would like to write an asp script to just run through the table
    and download every link by it's URL. I thought I had id by faking a form
    with the "File" element and loading it with all the URLs. Would have worked
    except you cannot preload the "File" element. As I understand it, with the
    "File" element you aren't actually loading the file name into it but the
    actual file.

    Anyway, seems to me this should be possible.

    Thanks for any help/

    You could this clientside,
    and have the server only give the client a list img addresses.
