Downloadr is a minimalist and well-designed Flickr browser, viewer and downloader, an OS X app designed from the get-go to offer its users all the tools they need to make the most out of Flickr.
Moreover, Downloadr comes with a built-in and lightweight Flickr browser that can be configured to display all the images added to the website on a given date, all the content tagged using one or more custom tags and even the entire photostream or all the favorites for a user of your choice.
Furthermore, the Downloadr tool makes it possible to browse entire group pools and even explore photos uploaded by users in your vicinity, as well as view each selected photo’s title and description in a HUD themed inspector panel.
Download Creative Commons-licensed Flickr images
Besides Flickr search, browsing and viewing, Downloadr can also be used to quickly download any image with a Creative Commons license you want by drag and dropping it on a Finder folder of your choice or directly on your Mac’s desktop.
In addition, Downloadr enables you to authenticate or being able to access content tagged as restricted or private.
Custom image license and safe search
What’s more, from Downloadr’s Preferences window you can customize Flickr’s Safe Search feature and, if you are looking for a precise type of licensed content, you can also select the images that will be displayed within the app’s browser window depending on their license.
Intuitive and lightweight Flickr browser and downloader
All in all, because it makes browsing the Flickr database as an authenticated user and to download images to your Mac with a simple flick of your mouse, Downloadr can be considered a tool that any photography enthusiast should install on his Mac.
