How to Take Photos From Facebook and Put Them on a Computer

By Robert Schrader

Facebook allows each user to organize her photos into albums, which she shares with friends, family members and other personal contacts, allowing them to browse through photos at their leisure. Facebook photo albums also allow for direct download of images from Facebook. Save a friend's photos to your computer's hard drive directly from her Facebook photo album.

Step 1

Navigate to your friend's Facebook page. Click the "Photos" tab underneath her profile picture on the left side of the page.

Step 2

Open the album that contains the photo you want to download. Scroll through images in the album until you arrive at the one you want to download. Click it.

Step 3

Hover your mouse over the lower-left corner of the screen. Click the "Download' button; browse your computer for a suitable download location and give the file a name. Click "Save."

Tips & Warnings

  • Download friends' photos only for personal use on your own computer. Don't repost a friend's photos without her explicit permission.
