Download your Flickr albums with just five clicks

As Flickr will stop their free plan on February 5, 2019 (goodbye 1TB of photos), some folks are looking for tools to download everything to move on. At that time Flickr will start deleting all your photos, except the latest 1,000.

Let’s go testing some apps that may help you…

Adios for Flickr


OS: Mac & Windows

Price: Free for up to 25 albums, 5.99€ for unlimited albums and users.

It does not use the Flickr API and downloads your Flickr account data as zip files. That’s working really fast on the one hand and it takes you just five clicks…

You have a ton of images on Flickr and want to leave? Me too!

TL;DR: Just use the app Adios for Flickr (Mac/Win) as the Flickr download options are pretty frustrating and time consuming.

Flickr was a great website… around 12 years ago. And Flickr once had a 1,000 photo limit for free users and a pro plan. As pro, you could upload as many photos as you want. Some years ago they introduced their new free plan: 1TB photo storage for zero bucks and it attracted many new users… I guess. At that time I canceled my pro subscription. Why? I just needed a safe space for my photos, but I didn’t interact…
