Download photos from Flickr and create Flash slideshows
Flickr has become something of an institution on the Internet, and there are thousands of people using it on a regular basis to store and share their photos online.
Even if you don't have a Flickr account you're still able to navigate the site and look at what other people have added. Sareen Flickr Downloader is designed to help you save images from Flickr in a more effective way.
Unfortunately, this doesn't really work and I found that downloading images was just as quick, if not quicker, using the good old fashioned right-click method.
The application is a bit of a pain to install because you can't choose where to install it, and once it's running it's still pretty cumbersome.
It acts like a web browser for Flickr, except instead of right-clicking to save an image you click the 'Save' button in Flickr Downloader. The image is then downloaded and displayed in a panel at the bottom of the interace.
But you can't do anything with it - just look at it. What's more, the application restricts you on what you can download by making you choose a filter for small, medium or large images.
On the plus side, the program allows you to add star ratings and tags to the images you pilfer from Flickr, making it easier for you to manage them once you've got them.

Really, I have no idea what James Thornton is talking about in his review. This product works great - I have been using it for about 4 years, and the author is quite aware of it's limitations and produces incremental updates on a regular basis. Yes, you are limited (through initial start-up) to the size you want to download, but beyond that, the interface is quite simple to figure out. Upon launching, you need to log into Flickr. Then you just type a keyword for the search, and voila, everything pops up. A window with all the images will appear where you can select one or all (or all the pages) to download to your computer - very easy and simple. It's not an editor, just a basic down loader.
Pros: Save large files. Preview of images to down load. Small installation.
Cons: Web based. Thumbnails are not sizeable. Can be slow.
