I suggest you ...

Remove photo's id in file name

File name includes flickr id for the photo. This id is ensuring that 2 differents photos with the same title will be saved in 2 different files.

But I prefer having a numbered suffix for duplicate titles rather than an id for each file

    It would be good not to have the flickr id number, but not sure how downloadair would handle repeated back-ups of the same photos.
    For example, I have over 1,000 flickr photos & videos spread across several albums, which I regularly back up to a USB HD. When I run downloadair, it adds the new flickr photos and overwrites the existing ones, BUT if the existing photos had been renamed in an earlier session, I could end up with multiple copies of the same photo.
