How to bulk download Flickr photos to your computer?

Though there are many photo sharing platforms available to us, but nothing comes close to Flickr. Specifically in terms of functionality and the huge storage space that it offers. Last year Yahoo! announced that Flickr will now offer each of its user 1 TB of FREE storage space. Which is way higher than what its competitors are offering.

If you are a regular Flickr user, chances are that you upload photos way to frequently and by now might have 1000s of photos in your Flickr account. There may come a time when you need to download photos from your Flickr account to your computer. Downloading Flickr photos to your desktop is a little tricky and cumbersome task if you do it manually. Because Flickr doesn't allow you to bulk download photos to your computer.

You can not actually directly bulk download photos straight from Flickr account. 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.

So, to start your bulk download do the following:

1. Download any FREE third party application tool (like PicBackMan) on your computer system.

2. Install it and register your account.

3. Associate your Flickr account with the application by providing your Flickr login details.

4. See if it allows you to select Flickr albums / sets to download on your computer.

5. Specify a location on your computer where software will store / backup Flickr photos.

6. This is how you bulk download photos from your Flickr account to your desktop.

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!!
