The biggest pain of downloading photo or video sets from Flickr is that each photo or video must be downloaded separately. There are scripts that may help and there is a downloading program that was developed for downloading sets of photos. However, these require that you install something on your computer or have some programming knowledge of scripting languages. The problem has finally been solved.
FlickAndShare is a free service that allows you to generate a short-link URL to any set of photos or videos that you have on Flickr. The service creates a URL to any set on Flickr that you wish to share with friends. Once the URL is created, you must not change the Flickr security settings for any photos or videos in that set. If you do, Flickr generates a new static link for the photo or video. This will cause your short-link URL to be invalid. To cure the problem, simply generate a new short-link URL.
