My reminders on fetching pictures from flickr, to store them offline, i.e. for display at a monitor. Fetching on linux.
# grep out the flickr urls grep flickr urls.txt |sort|uniq >urls2 # lets use lynx to get the pictures urls. # The 2 biggest sizes I see available for the pictures are these: # Large 1600 (1600 x 1068) available at $url/sizes/h # Large 2048 (2048 x 1367) available at $url/sizes/k for i in $(cat tmpp4); do lynx -source $i/sizes/k >>allsources.txt; lynx -source $i/sizes/h >>allsources.txt; echo -n '.'; done # now grep out the photo urls and fetch them egrep 'img src.*jpg' allsources.txt| \ sed -e 's,.*src=",,' -e 's,".*,,'|sort|uniq >photourls.txt # TODO: now for many pictures 2 URLs exist: # remove the lower resolution URL. for i in $(cat photourls.txt); do wget $i done
