Downloading original sized photos from Flickr

Many people have asked us how to download photos from our Flickr site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/uon

The following instructions for PC were current as of 17 March 2015, but, as Flickr’s interface often changes, the method may change at any time.

1. On the photo page, click the downward pointing arrow in the bottom right corner as shown –

2. Click View all sizes

3. Click Original

4. When the original sized image appears, right-click it, and save it to your hard drive or other medium.

A PDF copy of the above instructions is available.

If your original size has a blue mask over it when you view it in Mozilla, then here is a fix for that issue:

1. Type about:config in Mozilla’s address bar

2. Click “I’ll be careful, I promise”

3. Search for “gfx.colot_management.mode”

4. Change the value from ‘2’ to ‘0’

5. Close and re-open your browser
