Flickr photostream

Post by yeah8aby » 01 Jul 2019, 12:37

Hi there,

I have been trying to download images from Flickr photostreams but EPF only seems to see the first 25-30 per page.

I noticed the problem in more detail when using one of the templates (custom search template) which loads the page inside the Manual login dialog. It too only loads the first half of the page and not the additional images you'd see when strolling down the page.

For example, this photostream should have 1169 images: https://www.flickr.com/photos/14229642@N07/

I have also tried below with various advanced settings:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/14229642@N07/page1
https://www.flickr.com/photos/14229642@N07/page2
etc.
etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried downloading those photos album-by-album with this template:

www.flickr.com - album template

Seems to be working just fine.

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, the album-by-album template works if images are in albums. I'm struggling if the user doesn't have any albums and I've had to manually open and save the images myself.

Perhaps my example wasn't a good one as this user has albums as well as items in the photostream. Try this user instead (no albums):

56 photos and only the first 25 download

I'll try to create a template for photostream but I'm not sure I'll be able to.

Not a lot of progress so far, but a cool trick: if you use an URL which comes out when you click "Back to photostream" link on the last image:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/149991881 ... 199252150/

Then you'll get all 56 photos of this photo stream with the album template. I think I'll try to use it to create a photo stream template, but pagination is a real problem here.

Very clever! This type of link is useful when you just want to download a single page of a photostream too.

OK, I think I was finally able to utilize that /with/ technique to create a template that can actually grab entire flickr.com photostream:

www.flickr.com - photostream template

I tried it with the URL from your initial message and received 1165 files which is exactly the number mentioned on the website.

Please try it with other photostreams and let me know the result.

Great work! I have just tried on a few streams and all photos have been downloaded.

Thanks again.
