#Amazon Photo Downloader

This script is an alternative to the defunct acd_cli project for Linux desktop users who want to download a full archive of their photos and videos saved in Amazon. It works by connecting to Firefox over Marionette and emulating a user clicking and downloading each file individually.


This script has few dependencies:

  1. pipenv
  2. Firefox (developed against version 60.8.0esr)


First, launch Firefox in Marionette mode:

$ firefox -marionette

Within this Firefox window, log in to Amazon Photos. Once you've landed on the page containing your photos, run the script in a separate window:

$ pipenv run python main.py

Note that this will download everything to Firefox's default downloads folder, so be sure to update that first if you want everything to go in a separate directory.
