A Python script to grab all your photos from flickr and dump them into a directory, organized into folders by set name. The filenames are named based on the combo of the photo’s original date-taken and the Flickr photo ID.
Changes include tweaks to name files based on their date-taken meta-data so that the files sort chronologically and improvements in handling UTF8 file and photoset names.
Run it like this:
mkdir FlickrBackupFolder python flickrtouchr.py FlickrBackupFolder
You’ll be prompted to authorize with Flickr, and then the magic happens.
