As it is now, I need to select multiple photos and then I need to create an album that allow downloads. Then I need to click on the link and then download it all to a nice little zip. I would like to have a download-button at the top where share, copy and move is right now. 

Thanks ;)

This can be done currently although it creates full-sized JPEGs instead of downloading the originals.  The trick is to share the album first and check the Enable Downloads box.  If this is what you want, I will mark this as Implemented. If you need to have the originals instead of full-sized JPEGs, then we will leave this as active.

And thats exactly what I don't want to do. I would like a simple download button right here when I have selected 4 photos. 

Thanks for a quick answer!

Can we add a size option in the download menu in the cloud interface when we choose the download option from the web gallery ?
As I normally want to give only around 1200-2000 px images when I pass client a web gallery.

The current full size download , takes ages to download and they have compression and are sRGB - which is misleading for a ‘full size’ image , as its full size but not full quality .
If I do give them full size it’s always best quality and adobe RGB. For print / design uses.
And I normally do Dropbox or wetransfer for larger files as is much quicker.

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion Roberth.

I will note that you can download the files individually in the single image view (there's a button in the upper right). It's slower than what you've suggested, but if you just need to download a few files that should get you going.

Can't even download an album without sharing it first. Unfortunate.
