Thanks for the code and all the comments so far. Here are some additional insights:

  • Code runs based on Zillow picture tiles when you click on the property. Scroll all the way down to load all the squares in the tiles, especially listings with over 10 pictures. Otherwise only 8 or so pics would be downloaded.
  • Zillow has changed the download function so only low resolution JFIF files would be downloaded by the browser.
  • I made a change to the code to download WEBP files (uncropped_scaled_within_1536_1152.webp)
  • You can convert WEBP files to JPG online using https://anywebp.com/ (20 pics at a time). Scale your JPG to 2x for converting and download HiRes pics
  • Here's the update code that I used:
const script = document.createElement('script');
script.src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.4/jquery.min.js";

script.onload = () => {
  $ = jQuery.noConflict();
  
  const imageList = $('ul.media-stream li picture source[type="image/jpeg"]').map(function () {
    const srcset = $(this).attr('srcset').split(' '); // get highest res urls for each image
    return srcset[srcset.length - 2].replace(/cc_ft_.*.jpg/, 'uncropped_scaled_within_1536_1152.webp')
  }).toArray();
  const delay = ms => new Promise(res => setTimeout(res, ms)); // promise delay
  
  Promise.all(imageList.map(i => fetch(i))
  ).then(responses =>
    Promise.all(responses.map(res => res.blob()))
    ).then(async (blobs) => {
      for (let i = 0; i < blobs.length; i++) {
        if (i % 10 === 0) {
          console.log('1 sec delay...');
          await delay(1000);
        }
        
        var a = document.createElement('a');
        a.style = "display: none";
        console.log(i);
        
        var url = window.URL.createObjectURL(blobs[i]);
        a.href = url;
        a.download = i + '';
        document.body.appendChild(a);
      a.click();

Does anyone else have a problem with the code after zillow changed the way listings are shown? I had no problem until this week, code worked flawlessly. I tried in Firefox and Chrome, doesn't initiate download now

@frederickjansen

@jax075 @sumgthub Here's an updated version. I tested it in Firefox. The code is based on an older version that automatically navigates through the images, rather than having to load them manually ahead of time. I also reverted back to JPEG instead of WEBP so people don't have to convert the images manually.

Make sure you open up the lightbox with the first image loaded before you run the code. Let me know if you run into any issues.

const script = document.createElement("script");

    // Wait a little to make sure the next image source is loaded. If you get an error, increasing the timeout might help

    if ($(".photo-carousel-icon-wrapper .icon-reload").length) {
      break;
    }
    const srcs = $('.hdp-gallery-image-content .image:visible source[type="image/jpeg"]').attr("srcset").split(" ");
    const src = srcs[srcs.length - 2];
    // just in case... let make sure the src is not already in the list.
    if (imageList.indexOf(src) === -1) {
      imageList.push(src);
    }

    // go to the next slide
    $(".photo-carousel-icon-wrapper .icon-arrow-right").parent().click();

A lot of times it works on first try (especially on listings with less than 50 pics), other times gives the following error: Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: $(...).attr(...) is undefined
When I refresh the page and manually scroll through the pics with arrow keys on the keyboard and then run the code it usually works, but if the listing is over 100 pics it is a coin toss if even that works

// Wait a little to make sure the next image source is loaded. If you get an error, increasing the timeout might help
 await delay(200);

There is a 200ms timeout between clicking the next picture arrow and trying to obtain its source property. This might have to be increased on slower connections, or perhaps Zillow artificially slows down loading of pages if it detects you're making many sequential requests. I can try to come up with a more robust solution that works for large image galleries.

I think Zillow updated their page so this doesn't work anymore. Has anyone found a solution they could share with me?

@FredyLegacy I just tested the code on Firefox and it's still working for me. Are you opening up the images in the slideshow view? Open up the property, click on the images, then click on the image again so you only see a single image on the page.

Hi Frederick, thanks for answering. I did the steps you mentioned and it doesn't work. I could do it before using Google Chrome, I downloaded Firefox and had no luck.

This worked for me, but only after clicking to load the first image in the lightbox, and then advancing through each photo individually using the arrow key. Once I was on the last image, I then ran the script through the console, and was successful. Using: Mac Chrome Version 120.0.6099.199 (Official Build) (arm64)

@frederickjansen @knowyourrivals Okay, working as advertised. Perhaps I was not drilling down enough into the Lightbox (pictures only) feature of the Zillow webpages (so I followed the process @knowyourrivals described). And all looks good now. Thanks for responding and motivating me to keep trying. Cheers!

here is the new script to download the highest resolution images, the issue with opening the list view it will show a highest resolution of 380 x 280. in the code below i replaced the the image url with uncropped_scaled_within_1344_1008.jpg which is the highest resolution available

const highRes = srcset[0].replace("-cc_ft_192.jpg","-uncropped_scaled_within_1344_1008.jpg")

use the same script and just replace imageList with this below code

const imageList = $('ul.media-stream li picture source[type="image/jpeg"]').map(function () {
const srcset = $(this).attr('srcset').split(' '); // get highest res urls for each image
const highRes = srcset[0].replace("-cc_ft_192.jpg","-uncropped_scaled_within_1344_1008.jpg")
return highRes

April 2024 was able to get this to work! I had to individually go through each image, but if I stopped and did it on the last image I only got the final photo downloaded. When going back to the first image, the code went through all the images for me and began download. I had to agree on chrome to allow "multiple downloads." Thank you SO much for posting about this. Saved me so much time.

Possibly due the the fact that Zillow change the url to a more dynamic url......
So I use there sister site Trulia.com and wrote the code below..
@wtcipher, @ANONDOTCDOT, @eek2022, @medosf,

Please run inside chrome devtool console..

async function extractImageUrls(optionalUrl = null, delay = 5000) {

In my code please notice that you can run when current page/modal picture are in view...
OR
You can run remotely with a url (e.g: https://www.trulia.com/home/14308-windsor-dr-leawood-ks-66224-75683935?mid=0#lil-mediaTab)
you have to add the ?mid=0#lil-mediaTab on the end of the url

This script will work if you go to the last modal of photos, then run it. Then you can rerun it on the #1 of the photos depending on how many are in the aggregate set:

const script = document.createElement("script");
script.src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.4/jquery.min.js";

script.onload = async () => {
  $ = jQuery.noConflict();

  const delay = (ms) => new Promise((res) => setTimeout(res, ms)); // promise delay

  // can't map since there isn't a list, so just push as we find more.
  const imageList = [];

  // while there is a next button
  while (
    $(".photo-carousel-icon-wrapper .icon-arrow-right").length ||
    $(".photo-carousel-icon-wrapper .icon-reload").length
  ) {
    // Wait a little to make sure the next image source is loaded. If you get an error, increasing the timeout might help
    await delay(200);
    // Last image, break out of loop
    if ($(".photo-carousel-icon-wrapper .icon-reload").length) {
      break;
    }
    const srcs = $('.hdp-gallery-image-content .image:visible source[type="image/jpeg"]').attr("srcset").split(" ");
    const src = srcs[srcs.length - 2];
    // just in case... let make sure the src is not already in the list.
    if (imageList.indexOf(src) === -1) {
      imageList.push(src);
    }

    // go to the next slide
    $(".photo-carousel-icon-wrapper .icon-arrow-right").parent().click();
  }

  // get all image blobs in parallel first before downloading for proper batching
  Promise.all(imageList.map((i) => fetch(i)))
    .then((responses) => Promise.all(responses.map((res) => res.blob())))
    .then(async (blobs) => {
      for (let i = 0; i < blobs.length; i++) {
        if (i % 10 === 0) {
          console.log("1 sec delay...");
          await delay(1000);
        }

        let a = document.createElement("a");
        a.style = "display: none";
        console.log(i);

        let url = window.URL.createObjectURL(blobs[i]);
        a.href = url;
        a.download = i + "";
        document.body.appendChild(a);
        a.click();

        setTimeout(() => {
          window.URL.revokeObjectURL(url);
        }, 100);
      }
    });
};

document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(script);

I really appreciate you sharing your script with everyone, I will definitely try it out.

Cheers,
Montana
