There are some facebook albums which can be deleted directly, but there are some others, which cannot be deleted and hence you are required to delete one photo at a time. If you have a lot of photographs, then it can get tedious.
In my case, I deleted about 8,000 photographs — in about 20 different albums. Such things are repetitive, and you should let your computer handle it. I have broken down the entire process in 8 simple steps.
So here’s a step-wise solution that explains how to delete facebook photos at once.
Step1 : Get Imacros Browser Extension. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and select the imacro extension compatible with your browser.
Reason: This lets you automate a task.
Step2: Once you install imacro, the addon will appear on the top right of your bar (If you are using Chrome, Firefox or IE), click on it to open iMacro Dialogue box
Step3: Now, at the bottom, there will be a record button, once you click on it, there will be an option call “record macro”. Just click on “record macro”, and then immediately click stop. A pop-up window (with heading – #current.iim] would appear.
Step4: In that #current.iim window, select all and delete (ctrl+a and delete on windows; cmd+a on mac). Then, paste this imacro code to bulk delete facebook photos.
SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=TXT:”Open Photo Viewer”
WAIT SECONDS= 5
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Options
TAG POS=2 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:”Delete This Photo”
TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Confirm
Step 5: Now click save as & close (Make sure you click on “save as and close” and not “save ans close”). Name the macro as “delete facebook photos bulk” (It can be any name that you want, but I suggested this name just to streamline things).
Step6: Now, you will see the macro in under your bookmarked imacros (in the imacro window).
Step 7: Select the macro that you just created (“delete facebook photos bulk” or whatever you named it), and then click on the “play” button below. Once you click on it, there would be a box asking “play macro repeatedly”. You can put any number up to 100.
Step 8: Hit the button “play loop”.
This will keep deleting your facebook photographs one by one.
