If you’re like me you have a lot of photos stored on your Flickr account. Some of my pictures, for various reasons, ONLY exist on Flickr. This isn’t good. Plus, I want to clean up my photostream and get rid of some old junk. It was time to do a backup. Unfortunately, Flickr does not yet have a way for users to do a batch download of all their photos (or even subsets).
After a simple Google search I discovered a utility to do just what I wanted. It’s called Flickr Downloadr. It uses the Flickr API to retrieve all or some of your pictures or anybody else’s.
Check it out for yourself. My backup is almost complete.
