Related thread but for Microsoft Windows, my question is for Mac OS X 10.5.8

I found all tools only to upload mass photos from local computer to Flickr here, how can I download all of my photos automatically from Flickr to my computer?

Note: I've once been able to synchronize my Flickr with my iPhoto long time ago, I've never opened this app for a long time (for years), now I forgot how to do it again.

Check out http://clipyourphotos.com/bulkr - a cross-platform app, which is very neat.

You can also use Flick and Share: http://www.flickandshare.com It's a free web service that allows Flickr users to generate a short-link to automatically download all the set's pictures in high-resolution. Generated links are private so you can use it for your backup but can also be shared with friends if you need to let someone download pictures of an event (even private ones can be shared).

Try Photo Grabbr.

Whatever your reason, downloading all of your Flickr photos at once is pretty easy, with the help of Photo Grabbr.

Hi Alex, thanks for your answer. I'm trying it right now while studying both links you mentioned. I wonder it always said User not found although I put my correct flickr account : ariekusumaatmaja – Arie Jul 24 '11 at 0:48
Hm, I seem to have successfully authorized it, but it still doesn't work as I expected, now the status is saying "Invalid frob" – Arie Jul 24 '11 at 0:54
