ForewordThere are plenty of applications that work with images nowadays. If you, for instance, want to create the one for whatever purposes like image refining, colorizing, or something else, you need pictures and consequently, find an image URL on a website to scrape for every picture you use. However, the task may be a challenge, because the sites like Facebook or Flickr, for instance, provide the URL to a photo that turns out to actually be a link to a whole photo album and not the file. To strip images from websites, it’s reasonable to turn to web scraping. There are several common ways to do it. Traditionally we mention such options as the tools off-the-shelf usage, the custom web-scraper creation, or turning for professional data delivery services, like DataOx.
