There are several ways to download photos of a place in Google Maps. Many require a lot of time and effort. But apart from these, there is a very easy way to download photos in bulk. That is to use Outscraper’s Google Maps Photos Downloader service.

Using this service of Outscraper, it is possible to automatically download hundreds of photos in just 2 steps. The first step is to extract the URLs of the photos. The second step is to download all these photos with the help of a small prompt.

Downloading Google Maps Photos in 2 Steps

Let’s follow step by step how to download photos through an example scenario. Our scenario is this: We would like to download photos of a McDonald’s branch located in Los Angeles. For this, we will first extract Google Maps photos links. As a second step, we will download all these links using terminal and default commands.

Photos From McDonald's Branch on Los Angeles

Step 1: Scrape Google Maps Photos Links

We will use the Google Maps URL of the McDonald’s branch whose photos we want to download while creating the task. By selecting the “Plain queries (search keywords, place IDs, URLs, etc.)” option, we will ensure that the URL can be used as a query.

Apart from this option, it is possible to extract photo links of places in Google Maps by selecting a category and location. For a detailed description of how to use the Outscraper Google Maps Photos Scraper service, please read our “How to Scrape Google Maps Photos?” tutorial for more information.

We want to scrape 100 photos from this branch. So we set our parameters and, now we will start the task. We will check that the scraping task is over from the tasks page.

Scraping Task Result File

The task is finished. We downloaded the result file. There are two different links of photos in it. Separate links for normal-size and big-size photos. It is also possible to use both different links to download. We will copy and paste these links into a text file and use this text file in the download process. Now let’s move on to the second step.

Step 2: Download Google Maps Photos to Your Computer

The second step starts with creating a text file containing the photo links. We’ll copy all the links from the result file into this text file (Photos_Link.txt), which will be located in the folder on the desktop.

Copy & Paste URLs to Text File

Now that we have prepared the list of URLs for Google Maps images, let’s explore how we can download these images on a Windows system using just two commands with command prompt.

Download Maps Photos on Windows

For Windows users, we’ll use a command prompt to execute the download process. The command prompt, or CMD, is the command-line interpreter of Windows operating systems. To quickly open the command prompt on your Windows computer, you can use a shortcut. Hold down the Windows key and press the letter “R” on your keyboard. This will bring up the run dialog box. In the box, type “cmd” and hit the Enter key to open the command prompt window.

We’ll run two commands on CMD. The first command points to the location of the text file, and the second command downloads the links in the text file. 

In our scenario, the text file is located at C:\Users\Yunus Emre\Desktop\McDonalds Photos. We’ll run this command the to change location on the command prompt:

					cd C:\Users\Yunus Emre\Desktop\McDonalds Photos

We opened the CMD and time to execute this command:

Changing Directory on Command Prompt

We navigated to the folder where the text file is stored (Photos_Link.txt) successfully. 

Now we are ready to move with the second command. This command will start downloading all the photos with URLs in the text file to the folder we specified. The specific command we’ll use is as follows:

					for /F "delims=" %f in (Photos_Link.txt) do curl -o "%~nf.jpg" "%f"

Let’s run the second command now:

Photos Are Downloaded

Command prompt successfully downloaded all the links in the photos_links.txt file and saved the jpg files in the folder.

With this prompt, the names of all the photos will be as specified in the photo IDs. All the photos have been downloaded to a folder with these names. With the Outscraper Google Maps Photos Scraper service, it is now easy to download photos of any place in this manner. If you are in need of downloading photos in this way, you can try Outscraper’s service now.

Download Maps Photos on Mac or Linux

First of all navigate to the folder with our image URLs (urls.txt) by running the following command:

					cd /Users/Yunus/Desktop/Photos

Once you are inside the folder with a list of URLs, run the following command to save photos to your local computer:

					while read -r url; do filename=$(basename "$url"); curl -o "${filename}.jpg" "$url"; done < urls.txt

This will download all images locally and add a .jpg extension to each file.
