- Well Documented: You can watch the full documentation for this script, code examples and a visual demo!

- “classes” : Contain the gimuapi.class.php file. It’s the only file you really need. Place where you want on your website.
- “documentation” : Contain the Documentation for the script.
- “examples” : Contain some practical example of the API behaviour.

- Look the “documentation” and the “examples”.
- When you understood and became confident with the script, copy the “classes” folder into your website or localhost.
- The other files are not needed to make this script works. If you need the documentation, keep them, otherwise you can delete them (i personally suggest to make a copy of the documentation for further use).
- Include gimuapi.class.php on your PHP pages and start working with it.

Is it Hard to Use?

No! You need some PHP knownledge to use these API, but it’s bloody simple. Imagine something like this:

$g = new Gimuapi(); $output = $g->search(‘apples’);

And you are done!! $output will become an array containing all image URLs. Sure…there are many settings and modes available, see documentation for more info.



- What do I need to make this script works?

You need some PHP knownledge, and an environment capable to execute PHP scripts (Apache, Linux)

- Should this script works with the panel into the Live Preview / Documentation?

NO. The Live Preview / Documentation is just a Demo. You can extract the PHP Class from our package and build your own application

- Will this script works forever?

I can’t be sure of that. It worked for years (despite some little changes) but I cannot assure it will work forever.

- Can I use this script to batch recover hundreds of images?

This script CAN technically start a batch recover, but you will likely be IP Banned by Google while trying. Use this script in light-mode and you won’t have any problem. Abuse it and Google will IP ban you for sure.
