πŸ’Έ How much does it cost to scrape images from Google?

This scraper uses the Pay-per-result pricing model, so your costs can be easily calculated: it will cost you $3 to scrape 1,000 image search results, so $0.003 per item. Apify provides you with $5 free usage credits every month on the Apify Free plan, so you can scrape over 1,600 Google Images for free for those credits.

But if you need to extract data regularly, you should get an Apify subscription. We recommend our $49/month Starter plan β€” that one could get you over 16,000 Google images every month.

Watch this videoΒ for a few helpful tips. And don't forget that choosing a higher plan will save you money in the long run.

❓FAQ

Is there an official Google Image Search API?

No, Google does not provide a dedicated API to get images from Google. Since there isn't an official Google Image Search API to extract data from Google image results, people use other ways like web scraping or open-source APIs. Much like the API, web scraping tools like Google Images Scraper can visit the Google Images website, conduct a search, and extract image information from the pages they find.

I don't want just image URLs. Can I download images from URLs?

Yes. After you've scraped Google Image search results, you can find the image URLs in your storage. If you want to extract image files from those URLs, use Download Images From Dataset πŸ”—Β Actor. It will download the scraped images in bulk by exporting the image URLs into a ZIP folder.

Google Images Scraper is not the best image scraping tool for this. πŸ‘ Google Lens might fit your bill better.

Can I integrate Google Images Scraper with other apps?

Yes. This Google Image Search API can be connected with almost any cloud service or web app thanks to integrations on the Apify platform. You can integrate with Make, Zapier, Slack, Airbyte, GitHub, Google Sheets, Google Drive, LangChain and more.

Or you can use webhooks to carry out an action whenever an event occurs, e.g. get a notification whenever Google Images Scraper successfully finishes a run.

Can I use Google Images Scraper as its own API?

Yes, you can use the Apify API to access Google Images Scraper programmatically. The API allows you to manage, schedule, and run Apify Actors, access datasets, monitor performance, get results, create and update Actor versions, and more.

To access the API using Node.js, you can use the apify-client NPM package. To access the API using Python, you can use the apify-client PyPI package.

For detailed information and code examples, refer to the Apify API documentation.

Can I use this Google Images Scraper in Python?

Yes, you can use the Apify API with Python. To access the Google Images API with Python, use the apify-client PyPI package. You can find more details about the client in our Python Client documentation.

Not your cup of tea? Build your own Google Images scraper.

Google Images Scraper doesn’t exactly do what you need? You can always build one of your own! We have various web scraping templates in Python, JavaScript, and TypeScript to get you started. Alternatively, you can write it from scratch using our open-source library Crawlee. You can keep the scraper to yourself or make it public by adding it to Apify Store (and find users for it).
