In general, you can use your (client) bandwidth more effectively by 
downloading several files at a time, but 50 might be a bit much.  It 
would probably be ideal to create (for example) 5 files of 10 pictures 
each, then download those 5 files in parallel.

Or try with 4 files (2 of 13 images, 2 of 12), for example...

And if the files can be distributed to several servers, even better 
(but don't do that unless there will be a LOT of simultaneous downloads 
from numerous clients -- otherwise it's not worth the expense, the 
gains would be minimal).
