How To Download Your Facebook Photos

-Facepad Icon-One of the limiting features of Facebook Photos is that users are not able to download the photos they uploaded without individually viewing each one and saving them to the computer. Keep in mind even that may technically violate Facebook’s terms of service. If they are your photo albums though, you should be able to download them back to your computer, right?

The makers of the new FacePAD Add-on sure believe so which is why they’ve made new add-on for all Firefox users. The Add-on is extremely simple. When you are visiting an album you can right click and select “Download Album With FacePAD”. I personally haven’t tested it out but so far the tool has received perfect reviews.

So far over 84,000 people have downloaded the Firefox Add-On and that doesn’t appear to be slowing down at all. I can’t see Facebook objecting to this even though it may currently violate their terms depending on how it’s used. If you are using it to download your own photos, I would assume it would be perfectly legit. As Facebook has been emphasizing over the past week, you own your data, not Facebook.

If you want to be able to download all of your photo albums with one click, go checkout the Facepad add-on. Be sure to let us know if you have a good experience using it.
