The one thing that people often visit Facebook is to view their friends photos and check what everyone has been up to. It is only normal that you might want to download all those albums on to your desktop to view later. Since Facebook changed the way albums are uploaded, there have been many tools available to download albums, upload albums and do other things. Here are two simple ways to download your friends and your albums from Facebook using two simple tools.
People want to download albums because it helps them to save all those photos of their friends and family on to their hard-drive or other storage media. Suppose you’re viewing someone’s album and were interrupted by something/someone, then it’d be really handy if you store the whole album for later viewing.
This is one of the easiest tools available for downloading your favorite Facebook albums. You don’t have to pay for it and neither do you have to share any of your account information with them. All you have to do is, log-in to fbDownloader using your Facebook ID and then allow access for the application to share photos. Using fbDownloader you can download all your albums at once, all your tagged photos and your friends photo album.
How to Install and use fbDownloader
- Visit fbDownloader.com and click on the install button. It will download Installiq and then begin downloading fbDownloader and installing it.
- Once the installation is done, open fbDownloader(you’ll need to have Microsoft .Net 4.0 Framework installed).
- Now login to your Facebook profile and allow access to the application. You’ll then see the following window.
You can select any option given and then download yours or your friends photo album. There is also an option to download the albums in black and white, don’t really know why you’d want to do that.
This is a second choice for those who want a more simpler solution than fbDownloader. Fuschipranie is a Firefox extension that enables a Facebook user to directly download albums in just one click. I know the name of the program sounds really weird and most of you may not want to download it, but trust me it works really well. I tried this extension and it downloads all the photos from you or your friends albums just as easily.

That’s all you have to do with this little extension. No complicated stuff, just plain downloaded photo albums of the Girl you have a crush on so you can stare at them all the time. Kidding of course!!
