A while ago I made a bookmarklet to get the original photo from a Flickr page. I used it myself a bit, but mostly I just did it to warn those who publish with Flickr that there wasn’t much more than the illusion of copy protection on photos. Flickr since made their security-by-obscurity a little more obscure and my original bookmarklet no longer works.
Yesterday someone pointed me to Webshots, specifically the source code of a Webshots photo where the source URL is available in plain text, and asked me to make a new bookmarklet. So here it is:
If you’re unfamiliar with bookmarklets, you drag this into your bookmarks and then click it when viewing a photo in Webshots to get the original. I assume at some point Webshots will change things and this will break, so don’t get too attached to it.
