    Another valuable thread trashed by Photobucket's ransom-pic business decision.
    A big bandsaw is on my to-do list.
    I hope that these nice project threads are restored for posterity.

    I'm trying to figure out how to change it to public. I will let you know once I figure it out. Trying to do it on my phone is impossible. I had no idea photobucket changed until I saw your comment.

    This move by PB has done serious damage to fine work done by many people.

    Google "Photobucket alternatives" for some ideas.

    If you encounter a forum post that contains a blocked PB image, there is a way for you to view the image without requiring any action on the part of the person who originally posted the image.

    I can't explain why this works, or whether it will continue to work, but, using Firefox...

    Right click on the PB "speedometer" and select "View image" from the dropdown menu. You should be taken to the PB page; the display there will still show the speedometer.

    Now click on the page refresh icon next to the page address at the top of the screen. If it works for you, the correct picture should now appear.

    But, here's where it gets interesting.

    Click the back button - you may have to click it several times - until you return to the page that had the blocked image. The correct image should now appear in place of the dreaded speedometer!! Moreover, any other references to the image (e.g., a post that quotes the original post that contained the blocked image) will also now show the correct image.

    I can't say if it will work with browsers other than Firefox but it's easy enough to try.

    Thank you Marv. I tried it out of curiosity and was able to view 2 of the pics after ~5 page refreshes each. I tried most of the rest in the first post and quit after about 10 refreshes each. Strange that its not consistent one way or the other.
    Matthew, I wasn't able to see much, but... Busch beer?! Come on man... I'll bring over a 6 pack of good stuff. hahah
    I know you put a lot of work into it, and thanks for that. Hopefully rescuing the ransomed pics from PB doesn't turn in to too much of a hassle.

    I know it's very tedious and frustrating. I only do it if the text convinces me that the ransomed photo is something I really, really want to see.

    If you do manage to obtain the photos and intend to use them as a guide in building your own version, it's probably a good idea to save them locally on your own computer; use the "save image as" option in the pulldown menu. There's no way to predict how long this dodge will work. I imagine that PB is chasing down and blocking tricks like this as we speak.
