This add-on works great and is kept current Rated 5 out of 5 stars
There isn't a better add-on to download facebook albums in my opinion. The author has improved this piece of software by listening to suggestions from the users, and now it works so well that it's hard to imagine how it could be improved. Apart from an update here and there when Facebook changes layout or scripting, that is. And here what this update is: a necessary fix to keep the add-on current. Great job, really. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.1-signed).
Simply perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is the best tool I've found to download entire Facebook albums without any fuss. It was already a nice little extension in its previous versions, but v2.0 adds a little customization, a more informative user interface, and smooths out a few small glitches. The author is quite responsive to user input and quickly wrote several versions improving progressively from 1.5 to 2.0.
Bottom line: absolutely recommended!
Useful add-on, near perfect for me Rated 4 out of 5 stars
(This review is based on v1.6. The author says v1.7 is in the works and should be released very soon.)
Facepaste is a useful add-on, and I often use it. It is a preventive cure for carpal tunnel syndrome :-)
However, there are a couple of things that I would like to be addressed:
1) The number of photos in the album is overestimated. Facepaste appears to miss some of the photos, until you count them and realize it actually got them all (example: 86/100 images downloaded, and it stops there - but the album actually only contains 86 images). This issue has been noted by other users, too. This issue will be fixed in v1.7 according to the author.
2) The naming scheme. In previous versions (up to v1.4 or v1.5), the pictures when saved locally kept the same filename as in facebook. Something like xxxx_xxxxxxx_xxxx_xxxxx.jpg where all x's are digits.
Now (v1.6) they get renamed sequentially, e.g.: 001.jpg, 002.jpg, ... etc.
I like the previous behaviour better (original facebook picture filename, such as xxxx_xxxxxxx_xxxx_xxxxx.jpg), because it is better for documentation and archival purposes. As an alternative, I suggest a new option that would number the pics sequentially while keeping the actual facebook filename, as in
I think the naming scheme could be selected by the user as an option: old naming scheme (facebook filenames), serial number scheme (001.jpg, 002,jpg etc.), mixed scheme (my proposal).
Could we have this option, please?
That would be perfect for me and would yield 5/5 stars :-)
