3 ways to download entire Facebook Photo Albums to your computer in a few clicks

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.

When you click on any of your friend’s name, all the albums of that person are listed. You can download a particular photo or the entire album.

Using this site, you can even download the photos from Groups or Pages. I really liked the very interactive and user friendly interface and design of this website. Give it a try (Link to Pick n Zip).

        I can’t figure out how to use the pick n zip for photos that are on my photo albums not my friends. I want to try to copy all my pictures kind of like a sync not one by one. Any advice would greatly help.

        I have tried Pick n Zip and I don’t like it. I wanted to download an liked page albums (there was 140 albums with in total about 5000k+ photos) and it downloaded only 100 albums. When I go to page link I can access all albums without problems.

    Thanks for sharing these three nice programs. Are there also any programs to use for Picasa webalbums?

  13. Bill Dietrich Reply

    Pick n Zip didn’t work as you describe it. “When you login with your Facebook login credentials, you get a list of all your friends on the left side as a list. ” I didn’t get that list of my Friends. I think they may have changed something since you wrote the article.

    I am not that much into Facebook, but there are times when I need to download albums from facebook especially after a tour. These tools will come in handy. Can you imagine of downloading over 200 photos manually? I had done that before. Now, it’s a huge pain relief. Thanks a lot.

  21. familysms.tk Reply

    but a software for downloading non-friends (anyone) albums?

    • Sakib Reply

      I don’t think that’s possible if that person does not share the album with everyone. It’s only possible if that person has allowed to share it with non-friends.

  22. Raissa Reply

    PickNZip is not working in downloading albums from groups. Any suggestion or solution? 🙂

    • Amandeep Singh Reply

      There has been a few changes to the PickNip tool which I will be soon updating here in the article… can you please try the remaining tools in the meantime?

    I need to download an album from my business page, not my personal page. None of these methods seem to work. They apps force me to log on and “use facebook as myself” rather than as my business before they will let me download the albums. Is there anything that will help me? thanks

    Hello Amandeep, I have found your blog while touring in the blog land. I would like to tell all the readers – I have personally used the PicknZip website for downloading the Facebook Albums. The website is truly good and easy to use for all the people. Thanks for sharing such a nice article with the readers – I hope they will find it useful. Love to see more from you. This time I have tweeted your article to all my followers. best of luck. 🙂

    Hey Amandeep, I recently lost all my photos on my macbook due to some problems but thankfully I still had them on my website. I thought I had to manually download the 900++ photos and almost cried. After finding this, I was done with my photos in 30minutes! Thank you so much for your help~

    Very helpful!
    But how do I download the pictures from certain groups? If it is a “secret” group, and I’m a member, why cant I see any albums in the download programs?

    • Amandeep Singh Reply

      Pick and Zip is good for downloading from groups but I don’t think they allow from Secret Closed Groups. Let me check what are the ways to download from such closed or if at all there are, I will write a post about it…

    thank you for sharing this information. it’s very helpful.

  34. evelyn nucup Reply

    are the photos will be downloaded in high quality?

  35. Anon Reply

    Yea, I downloaded PhotoGrabber and I regret it.

    They were /forcing/ me to allow them to give them my personal information in order to use it. They literally gave me an “ERROR” code when I denied them permission to have personal information. Not only that but they hid their file on my “add or remove programs” list to make it that much harder for me to uninstall their program (I couldn’t even find the uninstall program).

    Photograbber just freezes and gives error. I think pick n zip is easy to use and i just downloaded a bunch of pictures

  39. amy Wagmer Reply

    Great article! Another way is through the iphone app called Photojacker

    This allows you to click on the albums you want to download off of facebook and saves them into your own personal dropbox folders. It’s very easy to use.

    Buy the app Photojacker in the app store
    Log on, and it links to your facebook
    select albums you want to save
    and it quickly and easily syncs to your dropbox so all the pictures are there. Very easy and fun thing to do when you’re bored and playing with your iphone 🙂 i always backup my photos.

    I wasn’t able to several of them to work (Windows 7/Chrome with latest update). Pick2Zip worked like a dream! Thanks so much for the article and suggestions. Now my 300 photos (mostly graphical quotes) are downloaded and ready for my next step.

    I’v tried Pic n Zip and it is great, but it won’t work with photos of secret groups. So how can I perform a bulk download of photos from a secret group (yes, I am a member of the group.)?
