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:
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?
