I'm passing all the sites from D7 to D8 and so far so good. But one of my sites gives me a couple of problems.

I was populating the RSS site in Drupal 7 using Feeds Image Grabber. Now, Feeds Image Grabber for Drupal 8 is not there. So how do I get RSS images then?

I read that maybe you can do it with the Feeds extensible parsers module.

Any advice?

    My advice would be to simply try it out yourself in some local development environment.

RSS feeds are XML files, so you could indeed use the XML parser from Feeds extensible parsers to extract data from it. This parser works with XPath queries. XPath is a query language to select data from a XML file. So to select the image from the RSS feed, you'll need to figure out how to select that data with the right XPath query.

It would be a good idea to learn more about XPath before using the XML parser. I think that the XPath tutorial from W3Schools is a good resource for this.
