I just finished downloading my whole Flickr account to a static website. Now browsing around it is much faster than looking at the same photos on Flickr, and it makes me want to get back to actually organizing my photos again!

@topgold Yep, it makes a complete archive. Albums, tags, even comments. It's all browseable as a website by just opening index.html on your drive.

@topgold IIRC it doesn't embed it, but the geo data is available via the Flickr API and is included in the archive. I didn't include any map generation code in this site build, but the data is there to use later.

@aaronpk were you able to download Flickr albums and keep photos associated with your albums? I have more than 30,000 Flickr photos and think I would need to spend a weekend sorting downloaded content.

@aaronpk super to know. I wonder if Flickr embeds geolocation into EXIF data when I drop photos onto Flickr's maps. I'm going to download a few to see

@aaronpk that sounds interesting, will blog about the process / the resulting set-up?

@aaronpk I just started using google photos for making albums and delivering them to people who might be interested. I am REALLY liking this.
