You can not actually bulk download photos straight from Flickr account to your computer. You need a third party application to bulk download photos from Flickr. Good thing is that there are some pretty good and easy to use options available for bulk downloading photos from Flickr all at once.  This is when tools like PicbackMan comes in handy. PicBackMan allows you to easily download all your Flickr sets to your computer system. It is simple, easy, fast and automated.  Below we have a step by step process to show how PicBackMan downloads Flickr photos in bulk.

Bulk Download Flickr photos

1. Connect your Flickr account from ACCOUNTS tab.

2. Go to MIGRATE tab and click  ‘MIGRATE ACCOUNT’ button, then select Flickr and click SAVE.

3. Flickr icon will now appear on the window. Now click on checkbox corresponding to ‘MY COMPUTER’ and click Migrate button at the bottom of the window.

4. That’s it. PicBackMan will now bulk download all your Flickr photos on your computer.

Note that PHOTO and VIDEO upload shouldn’t be running. Also, it might take time for migration to complete depending upon the number of photos you have on your Flickr account. By default downloaded photos are saved in “C:\PicBackMan\”, folder. You can change this location to any other from settings.

Here’s the video tutorial you can refer to

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
