Script: Export Public Buzznet Photos
Last night I made a small PHP script to download all of susandennis's public pictures from her old Buzznet photo gallery. She now uses another service but wanted to pull those pictures forward and keep a local copy of all of them. They didn't seem to provide an easy export method but all of the original images are made public.

This script will pull the first photo listing page, determine how many pages there are, then download each listing page and use the thumbnails to determine the original image on their servers. For most, if not all, images that will still include any EXIF and other internal metadata attributes.

Current Mood: okay okay

that is so cool to see the actual code. thank you again (and again and again) - I found a couple of great shots in there that I missed when I tried to do it manually and I love having all of them safe and sound on my machine.

The code looks even better (and easier to understand) when it has syntax highlighting. I'm not sure why my server didn't do that automatically, though. *shrug*

You're welcome. I just enjoy helping people out. :)
