Installation instructions:

pip3 install backup_all_my_flickr_photos

It is recommended to create a Python 3 environment with Virtualenv first.

Run

backup-all-my-flickr-photos [--delete] <destination_directory>

This will download all the photos and videos in your account to the destination directory specified.

If you specified the --delete flag, it will also delete files in the destination directory that do not correspond to photos or videos in your Flickr account.

On the the first run, you will be prompted to provide an API key and secret, and to authorise the application. The script will guide you through this process. The information will get saved to ~/.config/backup-all-my-flickr-photos/.

The files in the destination folder will be given an appropriate file extension and will be named with the name of the photo/movie (if it has a name), followed by an ID number. No other metadata is saved.
