Flickr is one of the best online photo management, storage and photo sharing application complete owned by yahoo.
You can see what others are uploading, share your uploads with world / friends and family. With a free account you can upload up to 100 MB of photos every month. A yearly subscription of $25 on a prorated basis lets you upload more photos without any sort of restriction.
Great business model as everyone gets what they want and most reliable as it is backed up by one of the IT giants.
Flickr has a set of tools which assist users to upload pics in bulk. Saves a lot of time when users have more than one photo to upload. But Flickr does not have any tools for bulk downloading photos on to your PC. I have no idea why they haven’t thought about it ? or is it that they have thought about it and have not done anything about it with a specific reason – not waste their bandwidth ? May be – May be not.
But that’s nothing to worry about. If you want to download all your photos from Flickr at once, you can use GreggMan’s FlickrDown. A great piece of freeware utility helps you download all the photos you want in few clicks.
It’s a simple utility software Gregg wrote for himself and it comes with no warranty. But having used FlickrDown, I must say it does everything you want. You can download all the photos that have public access, select only those photos which you want or everything by checking the last option which says ‘All Photos’.
