Fetches public photos of different social networking platforms

Project Description


Imagyy aims to solve the following issues:

  • Due to the advent of Post Search, it’s difficult to use the feature of “Photos of” which was earlier done using graph search.
  • Downloads profile images from popular platforms like Linkedin, Quora, Github, Instagram, Facebook etc.

You can read more about the project here.

Installation :
