    I figured out a workaround for photobucket. Put ~original at the end of the url and it works for me.


    Could be helpful for anyone that wants to fix their broken pics without having to reupload them. I'm sure photobucket is a sinking ship though, so I don't know how long that will last.

    Whoa-- it works!

    For now, as noted, but still a happy discovery.

    Thanks! :)

    Yeah, it worked for me in the Auto knives picture thread... I'll give it a few days to see if it holds before I start digging into older posts.

    The url with the ~original at the end is a direct link to the original full size image that you uploaded to photobucket, (if you paste that link into your address bar it will take you directly to the pic, not the photobucket library like the other links do) so using that link is a more direct path to the unfiltered image and I guess they either haven't thought about blocking those or haven't figured out how yet.
