Mass downloader tool for Flickr

Recently I have started using Flickr - an online photo sharing services from Yahoo. In my opinion Flickr is really cool and has some real great collection of pictures. I personally like to save pictures locally to my system but selecting them one at a time to download was too much of a hassle, so i went looking for some better alternative.

Since there is no offical application/software released by Flickr, Flickr enthusiasts have developed some excellent Flickr Photo downloading tools using the Flicker API. Managed to some solutions, here are my recommendations.

1. Flickr AutoDownloadr : is a small, freeware Windows application written using the Flickr API and AutoIt. Using it, you can pick any photos from Flickr - yours, your friends', random strangers' - and create a slideshow from them, which displays in a fullscreen window.
Download Link (Thanks Ben)

2. Downloadr : you can search, browse and batch download multiple Flickr pictures based on image tag (s), Flickr username, Groups Pools. (Thanks Amit , January )

3. Flickrdown 2.41 : This is also an easy to use downloader, the only catch it requires Microsoft .NET 2.0

By they way do check out this nice collection of Flickr Tools

Thanks for the review! By the way, here's a link to Flickr AutoDownloadr. I've written a Javascript fullscreen slideshow for Flickr as well - no need to download anything to use this.
