flickr Downloader for albums and tags


well, I was looking for a nice wallpapers and found these amazing photos by Masashi Wakui on flickr.
tried downloading, but apparently flickr was not allowing any downloads.
If I was to do it manually, then I would have to open each one of the pictures, click to download,
then click to choose the size, open inspect elements, find the link to the image,
copy, paste it to download. Annoying, isnt't it?

So I wrote a code to do that.
In order to use this you will need an API key and secret Key for Flickr,
However I have left my API keys in there for everyone to use
You will be asked to enter wether you want to search by the 'tag' or by the 'album'
The quality is set to download the highest all the time.
All the pictures will be saved into a folder called 'images/tag or albumID';
If folders do not exist, they will be automatically generated
alt tag

The output should be like this:
