Download Images from Reddit Using Open-Source ImageDownloader

There are so many tools that can download images from various websites like Reddit but all of these tools download these images blindly. They do not allow you to filter the images that you wish to download. If you want more control on the type of images that you want to download, then perhaps you may want to use the open-source ImageDownloader.
