    Hi,

    I need help, I want to search a specific website for images, e.g.
    http://www.apple.com/ -> the program or search engine should create random picture names, e.g. sjduo.png and try out every possible combination over time. It should then try to open that image, if there's an image called like that, it should save it.
    I hope someone has written an application like that already, if not, I have to ^^

    Peace! Hope you can help me.

    Namek Kural

    People aren't going to be happy about you doing that. If you can't spider images from webpages then there is probably a reason that they are hidden. Also, you are going to have to spam their web server with thousands and thousands of requests and then download all of the images.

    Look for a program called fetchgals - this will grab you any images by spidering a site - although it is intended for grabbing porn!

    You should be fine just spidering any sites, you will only get at things that are freely available for everyone to see.

    If I saw you trying to do that to my site, I would think it was a DDOS attack and block your IP at the firewall, and I bet most server admins woulddo the same. Just a fair warning.....
