Command Line tool to download all images from a tumblr account, with an optional parameter to say how many pages of pictures to download.

There are two versions available, one written as a bash script, another as a python script.

This was a venture into learning how to use python, so apologies for any issues etc.

If you notice any issues or problems, let me know, and I will release an update.

Usage is simple, simply place either script into a directory of your choice, and open a terminal (or command prompt.)

You then just call the script like so;


Where TUMBLRFEEDNAME is the first part of the tumblr url, for example carpr0n.

The second arg is optional, this is the number of pages to download.

The default just downloads the first page, but in my example we are also downloading page 2.


  • Quick and easy way to download all images in a tumblr feed
  • Allows an alternative to using an RSS reader.
