Do you want to learn how to download Flickr photos? If yes, then you have come to the right page. Here, you will get to know how you can download Flickr photos and videos.
Flickr is one of the most popular image and video hosting services. This service was recently purchased by SmugMug, which is professional photo hosting service. Sadly, there is a severe downgrade for Flickr free users and it is that they are now limited to only 1,000 pictures rather than free storage of 1 TB that was offered previously. In addition to it, it has also doubled the Flickr pro accounts price to $50/year, but it adds more perks, such as photo books discounts, analytics, and other perks.
After January 8th, free users having 1000+ photos in their Flickr account will not be able to upload additional images or videos. The worse is that as of March 12, free users who are over the limit will have their files deleted until they are under the limit i.e. 1000 (beginning with oldest photos).
So, if you don’t take any action by March 12, then SmugMug will finally delete your image collection after the starting 1000 photos and videos for permanent. Sadly, deleted photos and videos can’t be retrieved even if you go for Flickr pro account later.
If you don’t want to lose your photos, then you can go for Flickr Pro version that costs $5.99/ month. However, if you don’t want to stick with the free plan and having 1000+ photos, then you can download Flickr photos and move them to other photo services, like Google photos.
To begin the process, sign-in to your Flickr account and then, navigate to the “Camera Roll”.
Next, Click the photos you want to download or select all and then, click on “Download”.
After that, click on “Create Zip file”, wait for the motivation that your zip file is created.
Once you receive a notification, open it and then, click on the hyperlink you received to download the photos.
