I don't know if any of these options will work on an Android phone or not, but it's worth looking into, at worst, if you have a computer of some kind, you may want to download your content these options then:

1. Look into Bulkr, I personally use it and invested the money to buy it without regret. The free version does exist but limits what you can do.
2. You could also try Downloader, it's an open source program, I haven't used it, but you could look into it and see if it's a viable solution for you.
3. There's also Downloadair, Flick and share, as well as Sale en Software.
4. You can also click on "Request Data" in your settings.

So you essentially have 6 different ways to download your content, some free, some pay to use, some come with Flickr, some you have to look for.

Best of luck.

Downloading photos with my Android 8 smartphone using the Flickr app works perfectly.

As soon as the download is finished, a new album named "Flickr" is created in the Android Gallery, where you can find the downloaded photos.

I went to setting, apps, gallery and changed permissions to contacts and storage...it works now! I have an s8+ and somehow it got changed.

Indeed. The Android application claims to have downloaded your photograph (to who knows where?), but you can't find it anywhere on your device.

G_E_R_D:

Where exactly and precisely does this putative "Android Gallery" live in the file system?

Under Gallery. Open the Gallery app then Albums and it should be there.

I recently switched to a Samsung Galaxy S9 and I can't download from the app either. It says "Download starting..." then nothing. Previously my phone would notify me when a download was complete. I checked the Gallery and there were no Flickr albums there.

I just tested this using the latest version of the android app on a Moto G5 Plus running Android 8.1 and was able to download an image with no issue.
