Downloading photos from Flickr to your computer is quite easy once you learn a few valuable tricks. You’ll need to have access to a computer and the internet connection, as the mobile app isn’t capable of handling these functions. 
  1. Log into your Flickr account.
  2. Select the photos you wish to download to your computer. You can select photos from your 'Camera Roll' or 'Albums'. Camera Roll will show all your photos organized by date added. Clicking on a photo will add it to the 'pile' of photos to be downloaded. To add entire collection of photos, click 'Select All' next to the date the photos were added. You can also select an entire album to download it on your computer.
  3. Click “Download” at the bottom of the screen. All the photos / albums that were selected will now be added to the 'download pile and a pop-up message will appear depending on the number of photos you've selected. If there are multiple photos in your download pile the message will say "Download zip.” Click the message to create a single zip file, then choose a folder to save your zip file. When the download is complete, locate the zip file.
  4. Windows users, double-click the zip file, then click “Extract” to unpack the images.
  5. Mac users can double-click the zip file to extract the images to the current folder.
That's it. This is how you can save your Flickr photos to your computer.

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!!
