Log into FaceBook,

Click the 'Account' arrow on the far-right navigation

Select 'Settings & Privacy' followed by 'Settings

On the left hand side navigation select 'Your Facebook information'

**You now have Two Options - Transfer to another storage solution, or Download to your PC/device**

Option 1: Transfer to another storage solution

Find 'Transfer a copy of your photos and videos' and then click the 'View' link alongside it and follow the instructions (step 3 in red)

Option 2: Download to your PC/device

Find 'Download your information' and then click the 'View' link alongside it (step 3 in green)

Deselect everything you don't need but leave 'Photos and videos' selected (step 4 below)

Click the blue 'Create File' button and wait for the file to be created (step 5 below)
