New to Python. I'm trying to find a way to get a url of the first picture I get from google search for some string. For example if I type "dog" I would like to get the first picture url for dog. I don't care which one just some url from Google image search.

Is it possible? what is the easiest way to do it? I saw from previous threads many ways to extract/download the image - but I just need the url and it doesn't matter which one.

This should work, simply replace the word to get images of anything. Make sure you have requests and BeautifulSoup, if not run this command:

pip install requests beautifulsoup4

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

word = 'dog'
url = '{0}&tbm=isch'.format(word)
content = requests.get(url).content
soup = BeautifulSoup(content,'lxml')
images = soup.findAll('img')

for image in images:
