How to Save Pictures from Flickr

All PBP Photos are loaded onto Flickr, and copies can be obtained from Flickr using a web browser on either a PC, Laptop, or Mobile Phone.

First we have some videos on how to Save (or Download) photos to a Computer or Laptop.

Following this there are some step by step written instructions on how to save copies of photos for PC, Samsung Galaxy, and iPad.

Written Instructions

The first thing to do is get into the Flickr Photo Gallery (or “Album”) which contains the picture we want to save a copy of.

(Note that we can save pictures which are on Facebook; however the resulting quality is not as good as a Flickr Save or Download).

Next step is to mouse over and click or tap the photo we are interested in.

This will take us to a large size preview of that particular photo:

Note that the screenshots shown here are for doing this process on a PC or Laptop, using Google Chrome as the browser.


Mobile devices behave slightly differently.

For example on a Samsung Galaxy the process steps are :

1) Tap on the desired photo

2) Click on “View More Info about this photo”

3) Click on “View all Sizes”

4) Tap on what size you would like: Medium, Large, or Original

5) Hold down finger on the picture, until a pop up menu appears

6) Tap “Save image” on this pop up menu.

– Note there are iPad saving/download instructions near the end of this page.


Let’s return to the process steps for a PC or Laptop:

Here is where we have clicked on the image in Flickr, and it is now opened up on the Display Screen:

On the very right hand side of this screen, half way down, there is a three dots “…” icon,(called “More Actions”), as circled in the screen capture shown above.

The next step is to click or tap on this three dots icon.


This should open up a dialogue box, where the “Download Option” can be clicked or tapped, as shown below:

There will now be a pop up box, where you can click to select the required size, and then click the “Download” button.
