You can download public web albums but there are a couple of caveats:

  • Although the album is public the owner of the album has to manually allow downloads of the album.
    • Settings > Privacy & Permissions > Allow any visitor to: > Check "Download my Photos"
  • You can only only download albums using the Desktop application - it can't be done using the web version.
