*gallery-dl* is a command-line program
to download image galleries and collections
from several image hosting sites
(see `Supported Sites <docs/supportedsites.md>`__).
It is a cross-platform tool
with many `configuration options <docs/configuration.rst>`__
and powerful `filenaming capabilities <docs/formatting.md>`__.

Nightly Builds

| Executables build from the latest commit can be found at
| https://github.com/mikf/gallery-dl/actions/workflows/executables.yml

.. code:: bash

    snap install gallery-dl


Windows users that have Chocolatey_ installed can install *gallery-dl* from the Chocolatey Community Packages repository:

.. code:: powershell

    choco install gallery-dl

    sudo port install gallery-dl


To use *gallery-dl* simply call it with the URLs you wish to download images

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl [OPTIONS]... URLS...

Use :code:`gallery-dl --help` or see `<docs/options.md>`__
for a full list of all command-line options.


Download images; in this case from danbooru via tag search for 'bonocho':

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl "https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts?tags=bonocho"

Get the direct URL of an image from a site supporting authentication with username & password:

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl -g -u "<username>" -p "<password>" "https://twitter.com/i/web/status/604341487988576256"

Filter manga chapters by chapter number and language:

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl --chapter-filter "10 <= chapter < 20" -o "lang=fr" "https://mangadex.org/title/59793dd0-a2d8-41a2-9758-8197287a8539"

| Search a remote resource for URLs and download images from them:
| (URLs for which no extractor can be found will be silently ignored)

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl "r:https://pastebin.com/raw/FLwrCYsT"

If a site's address is nonstandard for its extractor, you can prefix the URL with the
extractor's name to force the use of a specific extractor:

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl "tumblr:https://sometumblrblog.example"


Configuration files for *gallery-dl* use a JSON-based file format.


A list of all available configuration options and their descriptions
can be found in `<docs/configuration.rst>`__.

| For a default configuration file with available options set to their
  default values, see `<docs/gallery-dl.conf>`__.

| For a commented example with more involved settings and option usage,
  see `<docs/gallery-dl-example.conf>`__.


*gallery-dl* searches for configuration files in the following places:

    * ``%APPDATA%\gallery-dl\config.json``
    * ``%USERPROFILE%\gallery-dl\config.json``
    * ``%USERPROFILE%\gallery-dl.conf``

    (``%USERPROFILE%`` usually refers to a user's home directory,
    i.e. ``C:\Users\<username>\``)

Linux, macOS, etc.:
    * ``/etc/gallery-dl.conf``
    * ``${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/gallery-dl/config.json``
    * ``${HOME}/.config/gallery-dl/config.json``
    * ``${HOME}/.gallery-dl.conf``

When run as `executable <Standalone Executable_>`__,
*gallery-dl* will also look for a ``gallery-dl.conf`` file
in the same directory as said executable.

It is possible to use more than one configuration file at a time.
In this case, any values from files after the first will get merged
into the already loaded settings and potentially override previous ones.


Username & Password

Some extractors require you to provide valid login credentials in the form of
a username & password pair. This is necessary for
and optional for
and ``zerochan``.

You can set the necessary information in your
`configuration file <Configuration_>`__

.. code:: json

        "extractor": {
            "twitter": {
                "username": "<username>",
                "password": "<password>"

or you can provide them directly via the
:code:`-u/--username` and :code:`-p/--password` or via the
:code:`-o/--option` command-line options

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl -u "<username>" -p "<password>" "URL"
    gallery-dl -o "username=<username>" -o "password=<password>" "URL"


For sites where login with username & password is not possible due to
CAPTCHA or similar, or has not been implemented yet, you can use the
cookies from a browser login session and input them into *gallery-dl*.

This can be done via the
`cookies <docs/configuration.rst#extractorcookies>`__
option in your configuration file by specifying

- | the path to a Mozilla/Netscape format cookies.txt file exported by a browser addon
  | (e.g. `Get cookies.txt LOCALLY <https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/get-cookiestxt-locally/cclelndahbckbenkjhflpdbgdldlbecc>`__ for Chrome,
    `Export Cookies <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/export-cookies-txt/>`__ for Firefox)

- | a list of name-value pairs gathered from your browser's web developer tools
  | (in `Chrome <https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/storage/cookies>`__,
     in `Firefox <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Storage_Inspector>`__)

- | the name of a browser to extract cookies from
  | (supported browsers are Chromium-based ones, Firefox, and Safari)

For example:

.. code:: json

        "extractor": {
            "instagram": {
                "cookies": "$HOME/path/to/cookies.txt"
            "patreon": {
                "cookies": {
                    "session_id": "K1T57EKu19TR49C51CDjOJoXNQLF7VbdVOiBrC9ye0a"
            "twitter": {
                "cookies": ["firefox"]

| You can also specify a cookies.txt file with
  the :code:`--cookies` command-line option
| or a browser to extract cookies from with :code:`--cookies-from-browser`:

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl --cookies "$HOME/path/to/cookies.txt" "URL"
    gallery-dl --cookies-from-browser firefox "URL"


*gallery-dl* supports user authentication via OAuth_ for some extractors.
This is necessary for
and optional for
and ``mastodon`` instances.

Linking your account to *gallery-dl* grants it the ability to issue requests
on your account's behalf and enables it to access resources which would
otherwise be unavailable to a public user.

To do so, start by invoking it with ``oauth:<sitename>`` as an argument.
For example:

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl oauth:flickr

You will be sent to the site's authorization page and asked to grant read
access to *gallery-dl*. Authorize it and you will be shown one or more
"tokens", which should be added to your configuration file.

To authenticate with a ``mastodon`` instance, run *gallery-dl* with
``oauth:mastodon:<instance>`` as argument. For example:

.. code:: bash

    gallery-dl oauth:mastodon:pawoo.net
    gallery-dl oauth:mastodon:https://mastodon.social/
