A bookmarklet to extract photos from facebook album

Few days back I wanted to download all photos of a facebook album. Unfortunately that album was a personal public album can’t easily use facebook’s graph api to extract image links. In web when all else fails you still can do some magic with javascript. 🙂

I used the following bookmarklet to extract image links of thumbnails. It opens a separate window where it prints all the links, next use wget or any other downloading software to download images.

javascript:x=document.getElementsByClassName('uiMediaThumbImg');w=window.open('','','width=1024,height=768');for(i=0;i<x.length;i++){w.document.write(x.item(i).getAttribute('style').replace(');','').replace('background-image: url(', '').replace('p206x206/',''));w.document.write("<br/>");}w.focus();

wget command to download images

wget --no-check-certificate -i files.txt

Be aware: Quite a few assumptions are made!

But the interesting point is this address bar could be used as the replacement of FireFox’s search bar. Continue reading
