    I am working with a blog in wordpress that had TONS of photos that I need for another project, is it possible to download all the images anyway rather than one at a time?

    This is the only means I know of Tools -> Export in your WordPress.com dashboard to download an XML file of your blog’s content. http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/
    During the import process (if you are importing into either another wordpress.COM site, or a wordpress.ORG site), you are given the opportunity to have your attachments (images) imported at the same time.

    The export does NOT include photos, videos, audios, pdfs or anything other than the raw post and comments.

    There MUST be a solution somewhere to get your photos etc exported. Help. Somebody.

    You could install the WordPress.ORG software on your desktop then Export / Import your site to your PC and that should put the pictures referenced in the Posts and Pages onto your desktop PC.

    Ask over at: http://wordpress.org/support/ for help and guidance on the install.

    @timethief,
    I do understand how the later import works. However, I’d like to be able to back them up in a fashion other than to another site. The suggestion by @auxclass to install wp.org software on the PC will do that, which is a clever workaround.
