Get image links
At first we import the selenium module and start the web driver object.


driver = webdriver.Chrome(chrome_options=options)

The webpage consists of html code, defined by tags. To show an image a webpage has a code:


<img src=".../image.jpg">

Then we find all the elements using the img tag (from html):


images = driver.find_elements_by_tag_name('img')

Finally we print the link of each image using:


for image in images:
print(image.get_attribute('src'))

Full code:


from selenium import webdriver

options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
options.add_argument('--ignore-certificate-errors')
options.add_argument("--test-type")
options.binary_location = "/usr/bin/chromium"
driver = webdriver.Chrome(chrome_options=options)

driver.get('https://imgur.com/')

images = driver.find_elements_by_tag_name('img')
for image in images:
print(image.get_attribute('src'))

driver.close()

That will return all the image urls on the webpage.
To download import urllib and use the line:


urllib.urlretrieve(src, "filename.png")

You could also use wget, by using os.system();
