I went on vacation to Sri Lanka and uploaded dozens of pictures to my Flickr pro account from a public PC to make room on my camera's memory card.  Then I got home and found out that there was no way to batch download these photos (although Flickr will sell them back to me on a DVD for $22.95).  Turns out lots of people at Flickr want a batch download feature, and a few people have developed some apps:

FlickrDown:  http://greggman.com/pages/flickrdown.htm
FlickrAide:  http://members.liwest.at/swq/flickraide/index.htm
FlickrBackup:  http://sourceforge.net/pr...257&release_id=388388

The first two are windows only and require .net, the third one is pretty good but has limited options.  It loads your entire photostream (takes a long time if you only want a specific set) and doesn't give you the option of downloading a smaller size than the original.

Seems like it would be useful to have an OS-independent solution to this problem, something like a Firefox plugin that would add some checkboxes or something to let users download multiple photos.  Would also be nice to download multiple photos from other users' accounts than my own.

Anyone up for the task?

If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

I use FreeDownloadManager with the Flashgot extension, which I find superior to DownThemAll.  But FDM/Flashgot/DTA only let you download the thumbnails on a flickr page, not the full size images that those thumbs link to.  And none of these are set up to let you choose (via checkboxes or something similar) which images you want the full size versions of.

http://www.quickonlinetip...-flickr-tools-collection/ seems to cover what is available, updated this month. Search page for "download", at least a few more options I think.

That's a great page, but my search didn't turn up anything better than the three I listed.  All of the solutions seem to rely on the .net framework or else are otherwise platform-specific.  But at least there are a few options.  Thanks for the reply-
