Facebook is home to millions if not billions of photos, some of which are worth saving. The official Facebook app doesn’t allow you to directly save photos from other users, even if their photos are accessible. It’s led to many people resorting to taking screenshots of the photo they want, but this is cumbersome and results in a lower resolution or poorly framed copy. With Facebook Photo Downloader, if you can view it, you can download it in its full glory to your device for later viewing. As long as the user has made the photo public or given you access, you’ll be able to download it and save it permanently.
Facebook Photo Downloader works more like a plugin for the official Facebook app rather than a dedicated app. Once you’ve installed it, you can access ‘1ClickSave’ from the Share menu inside the Facebook app. You simply open the official Android Facebook app, navigate to the photo you’d like to save, tap Share, then ‘1ClickSave’, and the photo you’re viewing will be saved to a folder named Facebook Pics. That’s really all there is to it. The photos can then be opened in any photo app from the convenient folder. A small annoyance is that each photo must be individually downloaded and there is no option to download an entire album. There are few cases where you’d need the whole album but it would be a nice feature to have just in case. The best thing about it is that everything is done directly from the Facebook app so you don’t even notice that the downloader is there and you don’t have to exit to download.
Facebook Photo Downloader is a very lightweight and helpful plugin for the Facebook app. It’s available free on Google Play and definitely worth a try if you want to keep a full copy of a photo you find on Facebook.
