Is there a way to automatically download all the images that Google shows up on Google Image Search?

I do not want to download the thumbnails and only the actual images in their actual sizes.

A quick search for "Google images downloader" revealed two possible solutions:

  1. Google Images Downloader - (Desktop application)

    Google Image Downloader (GiD) allows you to download images by entering a search term. It then hits the internet and downloads the full sized images from all of the sites Google images returns.

  2. Image Downloader - (Chrome extension)

    See all images shown or linked on a web page and download them.

I guess if you want this kind of functionality in your own app these would be a good starting point.

    At least the Chrome extension is a brick. Commented May 28, 2017 at 14:31

Google Images Download is a GitHub project which downloads images according to a Google Image search.

You can give it the search term, a limit on how many images you want to download and a color filter to narrow the results,..

Works perfectly!
