Download Entire Album photos from Google Plus

Download Entire Album from Google Plus

By now many of you will know about Google+ : the latest social networking site by Google. Features such as Circles, Hangout, Sparks has made it stand apart. Moreover, Google+ makes it incredibly easy to upload, share and browse images. Sadly, till now Google+ doesn’t offer an option to download an entire album. That’s where original "Picasa Web Albums" comes in.

Here's the trick :

1.  Make sure that you have Picasa installed in your computer

2. Go to the profile page of the person who has uploaded the album

3. Now copy the series of digits from addressbar [see screenshot below]

4. Clear the addressbar or open a new tab/window and type :

      https://picasaweb.google.com/

5. Paste the series of digits you copied at the end of the address. Hit enter.




6. Enter your Google+ username and password (if prompted).

6. This will open up the "Picasa Web Album" of that person. Locate the album you wish to download.

7. Click on the album and it will open up. Click on the "Download" button and select "Download to Picasa".





8. Firefox : In case a "Launch Application" window pops in, select "Picasa"
    Chrome : In the "External Protocol Request" window, click "Launch Application"

9. Click "Download"

Thats it! Now enjoy the album from your local hard drive :)

Add ?noredirect=1 behind the picasaweb url and it still works!
Example: https://picasaweb.google.com/118246032670563481331?noredirect=1

Thanks a bunch. That really helped me out. I sure hope Google figures out a good way to keep Picasa users happy with the new integration of Google+ and Google Drive.

You can use Picasa Desktop. File > Import from Google+ Photos > Log into to google profile. It even worked with Import from Picasa Web Albums with the same google account. Enjoy!

You can download your photos from google plus directly. From the maximized version, select Download from the Actions dropdown menu. Full details here : http://google-plus.com/1909/how-to-download-original-full-picture-or-photo-from-google-photos/

This doesn't work anymore. Google really wants to force us to use their Google+ service. Very annoying.
