Against the Cloud – Flickr Dowloads

Well, in the new days there came clouds. Lot’s of clouds. And they started to swallow lots and lots… images, documents, you name it. Everything… But I like sunshine and not clouds. So, out they must come. From the cloud on my own personal machine and under my control.

In this case, it was a picture set on Flickr for which I got access as public guest. And yes, as it is the usual case with clouds, this thing makes no difference. Upload is easy, downloads not. Neither as single impage nor – preferably – as complete set.

So what to do?

As described here Firefox, Greasemonkey and DownThemAll can be used togehter and form perfect match. The Flickr Image Script for greasemonkeys adds links to the largest available size for each image. DownThemAll can be set to really only download the images linked from the images. Additional Link here.

Done. Perfect. And yes, this is a personal note, too.
