(UPDATE: Firefox 3.5 version available!)

I  love Flickr, but sometimes their interface gets in the way and stuff takes more clicks that I'd like.  One thing I like to do is view/download original size images with one click.

After doing some preliminary research, I found that out that you used to be able to figure out the url of the original image based on Flickr's standard url structure...but it seems Flickr has closed the loophole.  Bummer.

My extension extracts the url of the image you select, parses out the image id, and sends it to a simple web service that uses the Flickr API to return the url of the original image.

Let me know how it works for you!

Download
Flickr Original 1.0.2

  • Updated to be compatible with Firefox 3.5

Flickr Original 1.0.1

  • Added "View Original Flickr Image" option
  • View/download options now only show up on valid Flickr photos
  • Web service now returns the largest sized image available (for example, it will return the large version if the original isn't available)

Usage
After downloading and installing you'll be asked to restart Firefox.  Do it.

While on Flickr, just right-click on the thumbnail you want to download full-size and select "Download Original Flickr Image".  That's all!

Caveats
This won't work on images that the  photographer has marked "All Rights Reserved" or has disabled downloading.

  17. Jenny Mie Says:

    Why is it necessary to send to a web service? Is this to test if original version is available (_o) and if not redirect to (_b)? I have tried pulling the photo id with the page secret and server # to generate the url with success.

    Nice extension, works great, but if it gets too popular won’t it kill your website?

  18. Jason Says:

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    @Yansky: Thanks for that link, I just ran across that script the other day. A number of differences with his script:
    - doesn’t provide a download option (though it could be easily added)
    - needs Greasemonkey
    - he goes about finding the image url by regex matching from the photo zoom page, which can be fragile if Flickr ever decides to change its naming schema

    @Jenny Mie: What method are you using to grab the secret for the original size? The original size uses a different secret than the other sizes. Re: if it gets too popular…we’ll see how my server does :)

    Thinking about this more…it’s probably marginally faster making the browser do the work client-side (loading the photo view page and scraping the original url) rather than server-side (sending it to a web service). However, I’d rather stay on the safe side and future-proof the extension by using the API–Flickr has tightened up their image security once and I wouldn’t be surprised if they did it again.

    Sort of works. I don’t know if it’s Firefox 3.5.5 or the addon, but flickr original keeps displaying in-line instead of starting a download. It should always trigger whatever_d_.jpg. eg: abcdefg1234567_o_d.jpg as the “_d” causes it to download rather than display inline.

    I realize the add-on has separate view and download options, but I’ve double-checked and I’m hitting the right menu option (download). I’ve also tried disabling other extensions but it doesn’t change anything.

    Awesome plug-ing!
    Two feature requests:
    For the context menu, I would like to see a new window option. With sites like fiveprime.org to search Flickr, it would be very handy if you can open the original images in a new window (it works on the site already, but it replaces the page).
    Second, I would like to have the warning removed. What the heck if a bigger image is not available. I will see it directly.

  90. Provenflawless Says:

    Now if only you can download all the photos at the same time — Then this add-on would be EPIC win.

    Nonetheless, good add-on. It saves me time saving photos oppose of downloading the root of the image (which can be time-consuming.)

    also, i can now only get this contextual menu option for viewing largest size from the image thumbnails

  96. LL Says:

    Update to 3.6 Please!

  97. Jason Says:

    @Concerned flickrite: the plugin isn’t intended to enable people to steal photos, it simply enables people to access what they would be able to if they went to “All Sizes > Large > Download” in one click. Since it uses the Flickr API, it will obey the permissions you’ve set on your photo. You can change your permissions here: http://www.flickr.com/account/prefs/downloads/?from=privacy

  98. malcolm Says:

    Right-Click the main image on the left, you cant have “View Original Flickr Image” and “Download Original Flickr Image” showing on the right click menu, Flickr Original wasn’t activited, only shown right clicking the small thumbnails on the right navigation column.

    Is there a way to view the main original image on the left?

    Again really appreciate the work Jason.

  114. Scale Says:

    I had last checked Flickr several days ago, today I checked it again and it seems it has undergone a major update. Now when viewing an image page the cursor is changed to a magnifier as soon as it is over the image, which prevents from clicking the “orig” button. The button shows up but I couldn’t verify if it works by selecting it with the Tab key either, because the pages seem to have some buggy Javascript which hangs my version of Firefox (3.6.3) forcing to stop the script. Is this an issue of my browser or the extension doesn’t work yet with the new Flickr version?
    Thanks and please keep this fantastic plugin going, it’s one of my favourite and saves tons of time. :-)

  115. Jason Says:

    @Scale: Yes, I noticed this issue yesterday. For now, you can visit http://www.flickr.com/photobetaoptoutto disable the new view. I’ll be looking for a workaround for this in the meantime.

  129. Dave Says:

    Hi – love the extension, but it’s not working any longer. I’m running Firefox 8.0 on Mac, running the latest version of the Lion OS. It’s possible that Flickr has added new magic powers for its users, so maybe they’re the problem.

    Either way, when I right click on a picture, I get a message at the top of FF with a warning triangle, with the text “[Javascript application] Sorry, Flick Original could not view/download this photo.”

    Could you do a fix? I realize this is freeware, so if you’re otherwise busy I’d understand.

    Hi Jason, due to new version numbering for firefox (current 8.x) I can’t install version 1.0.8. So I have increased the value in “Install.rdf” manually before installing: em:maxVersion=”99.0.*”. This should be enough for the next years :-) If there some limitations for using flickr webservices like a quota per user or calls by using same key? Best regards, Fraggle

    Hi, love the extension too, but yes, it doesn’t seem to be working any longer, over the last couple days.

    I see a 1.0.8 version available, but it doesn’t seem to be compatible with firefox 8.0.

    any chance of an update?

  132. Michael Says:

    Indeed… Its stopped working.

  133. Thomas Says:

    Hello, great tool, but Version 1.0.8 won’t install under Firefox 8 64bit, under 32bit it works! Problem on my side? Or could you fix it? Bye Thomas :)

  134. Thomas Says:

    Hello, great tool! Sorry an addition. Version 1.0.8 won’t install under Firefox 8 on Windows 7 64bit (not compatible), under Windows XP 32bit it works! Problem on my side? Or could you fix it? Under Firefox 8 Windows 7 64bit the Version 1.0.7 install, but stopped working on flickr. Bye Thomas

  135. Thomas Says:

    Now Version 1.0.8 can be installed on Firefox 8.0.1 under Windows 7 64 bit and it works very fine on flickr. Thank you for the fast repair. I love the tool! Bye Thomas :)

  136. Bert Says:

    Very nice. I’ve updated to 1.0.8 & it’s working great. Actually, it’s working better than it did before :-) .

    Thanks so much!

    The extension ‘Flickr Original’ v1.0.8 after update to this version works without problems – it works perfectly :) .

    Thank you very much!

    It was working great until I upgraded to Firefox 11. Now it only shows the “large” view.

  140. TJ Hooker Says:

    Nevermind. It appears with the upgrade to 11 that there’s some sort of conflict with Ghostery. A Firefox bug no doubt.

    I’ve been using this command line downloader, and it works great.

    Hi, just a quick note to say I think the plugin is broken… I don’t know if Flickr changed things again with the release of their new “Justified” layout. Either way, the plugin refuses to download images :-(

  143. TJ Hooker Says:

    Yeah… I’m back again. Its stopped working. This time with and without ghostery enabled. I gave firefox time to close down completely before i restarted it. I’m on Windows XP if that helps.

    Broken. Please Update

    Greate Tool, works fine, thank you for this Inovation, It takes me a long Way to look for it.

  146. A helpful person Says:

    The Flickr Original plug-in needs updating, no longer downloads photos via Safari…

  147. A helpful person Says:

    Seriously, it no longer works as of a few days ago. Please fix it, it’s a great plug-in :)

  148. mark Says:

    this works!
    thanks a lot for your hard work! :D

  149. Nancy Says:

    You can also use http://www.flickrdownload.com/ to download individual photos with no installation required.

  150. Ben Says:

    Works even when downloading is disabled (e.g. http://goo.gl/yzYFh). However, it downloads th 1024×768 image, no matter what size I am viewing. Any way to change this?

    Thanks a bunch for the plugin!

    Yep, it is broken. I am sad. Sad, sad, sad.
