Flickr Downloadr

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.

  1. The downloadr is cool. I particularly like the ability to download only a particular set, or whatever.

    One thing to be careful of, though, is that if you have your *upload* preferences set so that your images are “downsized”, and flickr is the only place you have them, you may still have a problem…
