How to download Flickr photos?

Flickr now has a huge space to store & backup photos. It offers you 1TB free space which can accommodate tons and tons of photographs. At some point in time you may want to download some of your Flickr photos. Following we have a quick step by step guide to show you how to download selective Flickr photos.

  • Select the photo and open the 'More' menu, then click the 'View all Sizes' link inside the menu.

  • On the next page, choose the size you want to download and click the link in the 'Download' section.

  • Keep one thing in mind that, if its not your photo, you may not have permission to download the original file so you will not see 'View all Sizes' in the 'More' menu or the 'Download' section on the "All sizes" page of every photo.

  • On your own photos, you will always see the 'All Sizes' button and the original is available.

  • There is no batch download option but you can try any one of the handy third-party backup tools and applications to bulk download Flickr photos.

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!!
