Everyday we see our nears and dears sharing pictures on Facebook as albums and there are times when you want to download and store them on your machine. This is quite cumbersome a task, if you have to download each picture by right-clicking and then doing “Save Image As…” for each photo. The biggest disadvantage in this is that the photograph saved is not of the same quality as the image.

Below are a few ways using which you can download the whole album to your local machine in a few clicks.

PicknZip is a totally free online tool that will allow you to download photos from Facebook in a single zip or pdf file. You do not have to download any software on your computer to use Pick n Zip.

To start using this service, you just have to log in with Facebook. Pick n Zip allows you to download tagged photos of you and also, the albums of your friends. When you login with your Facebook login credentials, you get a list of all  your friends on the left side as a list. When you click on any of your friend’s name, all the albums of that person are listed. You can download a particular photo or the entire album.Using this site, you can even download the photos from Groups or Pages. I really liked the very interactive and user friendly interface and design of this website. Give it a try.

You must have heard about Adblock Plus for Firefox, which is one of the most popular add-ons. It can remove banner ads inside the video but it cannot do anything for the streaming video ads that usually play like commercials in between. If you use Mozilla Firefox and looking for an easy and quick method to disable all types of advertising served on Youtube, I’d recommend you to use AdBlockVideo Firefox add-on. Not only Youtube, it blocks ads that play in streaming videos on networks like Hulu, CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, and others. If you’re tired of the annoyed video ads in streaming videos, all you need is AdBlockVideo. You can install this add-on here.

I’ve found two extensions for Google chrome that can disable video ads on Youtube. First one is Adblock Plus. It works quite well when it comes to blocking those 10-15 seconds commercial ads that plays before the video. You don’t have to watch the annoying commercials after you’ve installed this Chrome extension. You can install Adblock Plus for Chrome here. Second is YouTube Options for Google Chrome. I like this extension as it gives you far more options to customize your video watching. The optional settings allow you to disable ads, video annotations, and auto-play. This extension is worth a try.
