Imageharvest.py is a script of the Pywikipedia Bot framework. It is used to copy multiple images to a wiki. It takes a URL as an argument and finds all images (and other files specified by the extensions in 'fileformats') that URL is referring to, asking whether to upload them. If further arguments are given, they are considered to be the text that is common to the descriptions.
A second use is to get a number of images that have URLs only differing in numbers. To do this, use the command line option "-pattern", and give the URL with the variable part replaced by '$' (if that character occurs in the URL itself, you will have to change the bot code, my apologies).
-shown Choose images shown on the page as well as linked from it
-justshown Choose _only_ images shown on the page, not those linked
