FlickrDown

Flickr.com has decided to ban Flickrdown. Their position is that Flickrdown can be used to download copyrighted images and is therefore bad. Of course this is ridiculous. Every browser can also be used to download copyrighted images and yet they don’t ban the browsers. Please complain and complain loudly to Flickr.com that Flickrdown should not be banned.

Recently a friend started using Flickr which is a great service.  I personally like to save pictures locally and selecting them one at a time to download was too much of a hassle so I whipped up this program so I could download them more easily.

It's free to use and download.

It requires Microsoft .NET 2.0. If you don’t already have that installed you can download it here

Download:

You can download the installer by clicking the link below.
