People who use social networking sites most of them have photo albums. To be honest i have never come a cross any Facebook profile that don’t have at least a photo album. Most of the social networking sites allow us to create photo album but they don’t have any option to download entire album photos. Like i said before google plus is not different. But we often need to download our family & friends albums from popular social networking sites.
Download Photo Albums From Google Plus
Suppose you need to download wedding photo album of your friend from Google Plus which contains 500 photos. What would you do? Would you download all photos from the album one by one or would you try a photo album downloader? Of course you would try a album downloader to quickly download entire album photos. I’m not telling that you can’t do that but downloading 500 photos from that particular album manually doesn’t make sense.
There are many third party photo album downloader available on internet to download facebook photo album. But unfortunately Google + album downloader is not available. Because it’s a new social networking site. I’m telling new because in comparison to facebook it’s new. Hopefully Google Plus album downloader will release pretty soon.
