Selenium Python – Get image src

In this tutorial, you shall learn how to get the value of src attribute of an image element, using Selenium in Python language.

To get the value of src attribute of a given image element in Selenium Python, you can call the get_attribute() method on the image object, and pass ‘src’ as argument.

<html>
<body> 
    <h3>Hello World</h3> 
    <img id="image1" src="https://pythonexamples.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/pe4-2.png" alt="My sample image 1">
    <img id="image2" src="https://pythonexamples.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/If.png" alt="My sample image 2">
    <img id="image3" src="https://pythonexamples.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/04/test_image-1.jpg" alt="My sample image 3" hidden>

The image with id=”image1″ is

<img id="image1" src="https://pythonexamples.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/pe4-2.png" alt="My sample image 1">

And the value of src attribute is https://pythonexamples.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/pe4-2.png.

Python Program

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.chrome.service import Service as ChromeService
from webdriver_manager.chrome import ChromeDriverManager
from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By

# Setup chrome driver
driver = webdriver.Chrome(service=ChromeService(ChromeDriverManager().install()))

# Navigate to the url
driver.get('https://pythonexamples.org/tmp/selenium/index-30.html')

# Find the image
image = driver.find_element(By.ID, 'image1')

# Get src attribute
src = image.get_attribute('src')
print(src)

# Close the driver
driver.quit()
