Sometimes we need to scrape the image URL from a website, but all we get is just the URL of a thumbnail picture instead of a normal size picture.
Here is a picture scraped from Amazon. As you can see, the picture is too small to see.
To get the normal size images, all we need to do is to modify the image URL that we already have with the following steps:
1. Observe the difference between the full image URL and thumbnail URL.
In most cases, the URLs of different sizes only have a slight difference. What we need to do is to find out the difference and use the Octoparse Clean Data function to reformat the thumbnail URL into full URL.
For example, the thumbnail in amazon is like this
The full image URL is
You can see thumbnail has 'SR38,50' in its URL. We just need to delete it from the URL.
2.Click on the three dots and click Clean data
3. Add a step to replace
4. Type in SR38,50 into the Replace box and click "Evaluate" to check
You will find the result is the URL you need, then click "Confirm" to save
5. Click "Apply" to save the step
Then you can get the full image URL you need.
