Download photos from Flickr

Project Description

Introduction

Simple script to download a [Flickr](http://flickr.com) set:

flickr_download -k <api key> -s <api secret> -d <set id>

It can also list the public set ids for a given user:

flickr_download -k <api key> -s <api secret> -l <user name>

Get a public set using the title and id to name the downloaded files:

flickr_download -k <api key> -s <api secret> -d <set id> -n title_and_id

Download private or restricted photos by authorising against the users account. (see below)

API key

Get your [Flickr API key](http://www.flickr.com/services/api/).

You can also set your API key and secret in ~/.flickr_download:

api_key: my_key api_secret: my_secret

User Authentication Support

The script also allows you to authenticate as a user account. That way you can download sets that are private and public photos that are restricted. To use this mode, initialise the authorisation by running the script with the t parameter to authorize the app.

flickr_download -k <api key> -s <api secret> -t

This will save .flickr_token containing the authorisation. Subsequent calls with -t will use the stored token.
