Which software can download and name images based on information stored in a text file?

John September 10, 2011

I have asked this question before, but left out an important detail.

I have a text file which has thousands of image URLs. Each URL has a name next to it. Is there a software that can download the images based on the URLs listed in the text file and name the image with the name specified next to the URL in the text file?

    I afraid that i don't understand what you mean. Can you explain in more details.

      If you're willing to learn PHP, you can do this very easily.

      I'm pretty sure those won't attach the filename he wants - he actually wants to download + rename them.

      John, if you're not afraid of a little programming then you could knock this up in PHP in less than an hour:

      1. Read in your file list and place in an associative array,
      2. Iterate over the list, use CURL to grab the file
      3. Read the second part of the array and rename that file to the name specified
      4. Save it, and go on to the next one.
