I'm looking for a knowledgeable person who might be able to build a custom purpose extension for Chrome, Firefox or any browser at all really.

I save a lot of images from various websites (legally) but some of them require part of the URL to be removed to gain the full resolution. This becomes a long process when saving dozens of images..

Ideally I would love to have a button, that could remove a set part of the URL (which could be customized depending on the URL), and save the image to a designated folder automatically.

Example (not a real URL):


The full resolution image URL:  


So I need to remove /styles/2017/public from the URL and automatically save the JPG.   I would have dozens of tabs open, so I would love to be able to just click a button to do this action then close the tabs as the images are saved.

If anyone is up to the challenge, please get in touch for further details on the real URLs that have the images I want to save, and for a financial contribution of some sort

Something like this might be able to do what you want:


The description in the Chrome Web Store states "3. Replace some part in URL with another string. Using Replace feature, you an replace query parameters value, replace host names etc." which sounds like it might fit your need depending on how it allows you to specify the part to be replaced.

Wow that actually worked.  Thanks very much.  It doesn't allow you to save the image automatically, but it does remove the URL string automatically, which does speed up the process.
