It's now Sept 29th., & still the pictures do not download properly. I've written in for help and have tried everything they have suggested, to no avail.
Right now, the only thing that will work is the URL-work-around they posted. I have to have 2 windows open at the same time and go back and forth between the two, as you can't download more than several photos that will load into their saved photos folders.
This is a bunch of crock! It worked before the upload so why not get us all back up and running. I also have Windows 7 with IE 9, but Google is no better as I've tried that also.
