I have used the Photoshop slicing tool to create some HTML pages, but it has generated dozens of images, many of which are not used by the final pages. To delete all useless files, I need a way to determine and copy all images that my webpages do use (with IMG tags and CSS styles).

I think that Teleport VLX, Firefox and Chrome can't do this. How can I do this?

So, are you trying to go through different websites and download all of the images from that website? Basically a targeted web crawler?

WebReaper is a program I used back in the late 90s that would download assorted data from websites. You can target it to just download images.

No, I try to extract valuable files from generated by myself – Dims Dec 27 '11 at 20:12
From generated who? I'm not sure if you're translation is coming across well. – kobaltz Dec 27 '11 at 20:15
So it does not working also as teleport. No image copied. I use images in styles, not in <IMG> tags. Image paths are eclosed to quotes, so WebReaper request files with that quotes and unable to copy any image – Dims Dec 27 '11 at 20:25
I created multiple HTML files, these are mine files, not from web. – Dims Dec 27 '11 at 20:25
What is your end goal? If they are your files, can't you SSH/FTP/Remote into your server and grab the files? – kobaltz Dec 27 '11 at 20:28

You can use the Firefox Page Info window:

The Page Info window gives you technical details about the page you're on. To open it: Click the Site Identity Button (the website’s icon to the left of its address) and click the More information... button in the prompt.


The Media panel displays the URL and type of all the backgrounds, images, and embedded content (including audio and video) that loads with the page.
