I've been uploading via Instant Upload (a.k.a Auto Backup) from my Android phone now for about a year. There are many photos and now I want to download them all to my computer. However, I can't download them all because they are not in an album and I can't move all to an album since there is no way to "Mark All/Every photo".

So how could I solve this?

The technique in this answer should allow you to select all of the images relatively painlessly. –  Al E. Sep 1 '12 at 16:35
    
@AlEverett, that worked really well. I didn't know that you could select photos by dragging a box around them. Thanks for the answer! –  Victor Bjelkholm Sep 1 '12 at 17:59

Visit Google Takeout. It’s a service by Google where you can download "all" your data of any Google service. Choose "Google+ Photos". This should contain all your uploaded images.

Choose "Google+ Photos" now. Works great. –  talyric Jun 11 '13 at 14:58

Can an OP or admin mark this as best answer? Just used Google Takeout and it works great! –  Ricky Hewitt Dec 12 at 16:24

To finish of the thread: According to Al Everett:

In this answer you can find a way to select all photos in Instant Upload. Instead of Deleting them you can add them to an album and afterwards download the entire album.

The technique to select all photos does not currently work with Google+ photos. But Google Takeout (above) works well. –  talyric Jun 11 '13 at 14:57
