Once popular photo-sharing social-network site flickr hasn’t kept up with the latest developing innovations where the pace is set by the likes of instagram, Google+ photos, Facebook, even with Flickr’s past 3 months of upgrades. I will say this: Flickr is still the most fertile place to find Creative Commons photos. (Any contenders?)

How can you download your Flickr photos for both backup and migrating them for sharing elsewhere? Here’s a list of web apps and client softwares I’d found that can download flickr photos in bulk:

Bulkr http://clipyourphotos.com/bulkr – w/ a paid Pro version for extra features
