Facebook is a great way to share photos with your friends and family members. There has been a huge rise in the number of photos shared on Facebook with more than 60 billion photos shared by its members already. Read some interesting facts about Facebook Photos here.
Everyday we see our nears and dears sharing pictures on Facebook as albums and there are times when you want to download and store them on your machine. This is quite cumbersome a task, if you have to download each picture by right-clicking and then doing “Save Image As…” for each photo. The biggest disadvantage in this is that the photograph saved is not of the same quality as the image.
Below are a few ways using which you can download the whole album to your local machine in a few clicks.
