Sometimes it's useful to have a backup of your patterns on your hard drive, for example when you want to work with them at a place where you don't have internet access. In this case, you can download all image files of your patterns with the following steps:
1. Install python. It should be preinstalled on all MacOS or Linux systems. The python version will probably 2.7, although it should not really matter.
3. Open a terminal and type: python cl_image_download.py YOUR_USERNAME
The download can take a time because the script will sleep for half a second after every in order to avoid too much strain on the ColourLovers servers. When it's done, the png files (200 x 200 pixel, no repetition) will be in the directory images_USERNAME.
I've only tested this script on a Linux system so far, however it should also work on a Windows system. If you have tried it with or without success on Windows, please drop me a Love Note. - Thanks!
Do you need a script for anything else? Just tell me!
