    Pictures from Skype 2nd Aug 18 at 4:48 PM
    I've previously used Skype for sharing and receiving pictures with family.

    Is there a way of extracting all of the photos in bulk or is it simply 1 by 1? (right click save as)

    I use the Skype app in Windows 10 on a laptop.

    Best to contact Skype and ask them.

    Skype, being first and foremost, a video-call tool, isn't the first app most people think of for sharing photos. Although it obviously does it, Google drive, iCloud or Dropbox might be a better option, if you want to download in bulk. But like I say contact Skype first to see if they do it.

    when their expectations are not met.

    Transferring via Skype is slow at the best of times, but if that's what you want to do then ask the sender to put them all in a zipped file and send that then unzip it when it's finally arrived.
