Download Image Activity

This is pretty straightforward.

Can we have an activity to download an image (from an URL) ?

Not so easy to do if authentication is needed first in order to access the image …

@adrian, the most common usage is when you are on a website, not necessarily logged in, and you just right click on the image and select “Save image as…” - this is what I thought it would be a good idea to have an activity for.

Hi @Vlad,

Can you take a look in the download activity. It may help you.

I think if website has no or network authentication then we can easily download image/file using webclient(c#).

But if website has a login page then things start to gets difficult. The output of webclient will be HTML login page… So somehow we ll need to use existing cookies/session to download the files or login to website using c# code.

Hi @palindrome,

To login the website you have to use normal automation steps. After that you can use the download file activity.
