    Hi BigJosher,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Could you please use an example to show us the process? Like the webpage URL, and screenshot with the items you were referring to highlighted out, so we can better understand the project, thank you for your time.

    Best regards,

    Is there a way to configure it to save a certain part of the URL as the name, instead of that string "NHC-icon-_2"  just to palechub. i can do it manually but for 200+ pics isn't there an automated way

    Sounds like you need a variety of tools here.

    Octoparse can scrape a site to obtain the URLs.
    And create a table that has the URL as a field, and the image file name as a separate field, but you need a seperate tool to use those URLs to download the images and rename them.

    Chrome extension: "Tab Save" can download the images with the original names.

    As for changing the file name of the saved image - there a lots of utilities out there but finding one that meets your needs for free can be a challenge. I have used this one before and got away with doing what I needed within the trial period

    Should give you an idea what to look for.
