I need to delete my Facebook account, but before I do that, I need to clean it up first from all of my information. How do I download all photos that I uploaded to Facebook into my computer? Opening them one by one manually and then right click to save it as a photo in my local computer is definitely a hassle.

Is there an easy way to do this?

I use Mac OS X 10.5.8

Login to your Facebook account then go to Account >> Account Settings. Look for Download Your Information in the Settings tabs then click on “learn more” in the right side. Click on “Download‘ button. It shows a warning messages they click Okey to continue. You will receive a email from Facebook once it is ready for download with the download information. Just follow the steps mentioned in the email and you are done!

  • Thanks for your detail step by step explanation, it's working.

From the Facebook Help Center :

How can I download my information from Facebook?
You can download your information from the Account Settings page.
Open the Account dropdown menu at the top right corner of Facebook and choose Account Settings.
At the bottom of your general account settings, click Download a copy of your Facebook data.
Click the Download button on the following page.

It includes photos and videos.


I would personally use the iphone app PhotoJacker. You can download it here.

It's extremely easy, it syncs to your facebook and you click on the albums you want to save. It is then all saved to your personal dropbox. I really recommend it. You can also save photos that you were tagged in.
