To download a particular folder:

  1. Click the small box to the left of the folder name, It will change colour and contain a white tick. Click the ‘Download’ button at the top and the folder will be downloaded to your Downloads folder on your PC as a ‘zip’ file. The download time will depend on the speed of your broadband. Mac users may find this different.
  2. Navigate to the Downloads folder and open the zip file by double clicking the zip folder; the contents (folder/photos will then appear). Copy or move the photos to the Pictures folder.
