Facebook is one of the most popular social networking websites, and if you are a registered user you can connect with your family, friends, and colleagues, chat, like pages, upload photos and videos, and much more. At some point, you may want to download the photos you posted to your profile, and that is a pretty simple thing to do. Let’s see how you can download Facebook photos.
How to download Facebook photos
In this guide, we are going to show you how you can download a single photo from your profile, but we’ll also show you the method how to download all your Facebook photos.
How to download a photo from your profile
If you want to download one of your profile pictures, or any other photos you have shared, go to your profile, and find and open the photo you wish to download. Click on the “Options”, and then “Download”. That’s all.
In case you want to download the photo on your Android device, again go to your profile and find the photo you wish to download. If you are using Facebook app, click on Menu and choose the option “Save photo”. If you are accessing Facebook from your browser, open the photo and click on “View Full Size” located under the picture. When the photo in full size appears on the screen, tap on it and hold until the window shows up – select Save image.
How to download all Facebook photos
One of many great things Facebook allows the users is to download all the data from the profile, which means you will download Facebook photos as well. However, the quality of the photos may not be the same, because your data will be compressed. To download your data, just follow these steps:
- Navigate to Account Settings
- Click on General
- Next, click on “Download a copy of your Facebook data
- Then click “Start my archive”.
- You will be asked to re-enter your password to continue.
- A window will show up “Request My Download”, and once again click “Start my Archive”.
When you are done, you will see a message that Facebook is gathering your information, and when everything is ready the e-mail with the link to your download will be sent. You will get all your data in the .zip format.
