No. Source, tags and parent post ID can all be changed after upload by anyone. As for source, the most important one is the submission page, so in this case it's permalink to blog post itself. Other sources are secondary, not entirely necessary, but always good to be there.

Also with direct URL, usually what matters the most is filename and as the front bit isn't required to access the content, it shouldn't matter. You may get browser error if trying to access the image trough SSL, but that can be skipped easily.

Thanks for this thread, I uploaded my first image with data.tumblr and raw file! (Added tons of tags, too) Let me know if I did ok.
Question, what's the first source I should list? The raw file, or the tumblr post itself?
EDIT: Actually, since the canonical URL is s3.amazonaws.data.tumblr, should I redo my upload???

The files in both URLs are the same, just edit the source link to s3.amazonaws.com and you should be fine.

For sources I would recommend in this order,

  • Post link
  • Gallery link
  • Direct-link (raw file)

Geez, no wonder my upload ratio is getting obliterated. :v

Your upload ratio went down 22% at worst.

If it becomes a problem you can message an admin about it.


Its rare but sometimes there are images with this URL
http://78.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbxys5SQC51rd8tfco1_1280.png
and the changing it to
http://data.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbxys5SQC51rd8tfco1_raw.png
doesn't work. Thankfully some are below 1280px width.

Posted october 2012, it has already been established that that old posts do not have raw variation.

Are there any plans to run a script to change existing URL fields?

If possible, it'd be nice to automatically convert-
//media.tumblr.com
-to-
//s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com
-so the post links to the correct source. I'm not sure whether a user could automate this, or whether admin action would be required.

I would almost just left them be.
As long as original blog post url is there content can be found, with direct URL most important part is the filename (and that's why inkbunny, pixiv, etc. are still important even though they give 403 errors when accessed directly) which doesn't change anyway (neither should MD5 string), you can still change it manually yourself and if history repeats itself, they could maybe need to be changed again.

Of course if someone does bot those I'm not opposed.


Does this script cover all possible variations in Tumblr links?

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Raw Tumblr
// @namespace    http://www.munkelzahn.horse/
// @version      0.1
// @description  Convert direct image links on Tumblr to _raw links
// @author       Munkelzahn
// @include      /^(https?://\d+.media.tumblr.com/)([a-z0-9]+/tumblr_)(inline_)?([a-zA-Z0-9]+_)(\d+[a-z]?)(.[a-z]+)$/
// @grant        none
// ==/UserScript==
(function() {
    var regexp = /^(https?://\d+.media.tumblr.com/)([a-z0-9]+/tumblr_)(inline_)?([a-zA-Z0-9]+_)(\d+[a-z]?)(.[a-z]+)$/;
    window.location.href = document.URL.replace(regexp, "https://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/$2$3$4raw$6");
})();

It converts regular links:

Links with h after the resolution:

This is just speculation, but maybe "revision1" for an edited image?

Definitely. Anything with dialogue will often be edited after being posted -- no one is safe from typos and spelling mistakes.

Also resolves perfectly fine to-
https://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/2253ed455d4c0c1cac937767d400f0a4/tumblr_ozakf55XJp1r4eyo7o1_r1_raw.png
-wherein removing _r1 causes a broken URL, so it's part of the filename if anything.


Anyone know if there’s a good way to get the raw images on mobile, specifically iOS?

Is it not possible to edit the url on IOS?

Of course it is...but have you seen how complex that is nowdays? It’s not as simple as changing the “1280” to “raw” and calling it a day.


Hey, it's not exactly the same site, but there's soup.io as well. If you look at this link the actual picture is hidden on the other site "Just in case", but I cannot seem to figure out what the optimal resolution is. I have located a 1280 on another tumblr, but just in case this can go even higher I'll wait on it.

Assuming you’re using Safari not the tumblr app, if you have an iPhone 6S or later, 3D Touch on the picture and it will open with the URL, so now you can edit the URL to raw. If you don’t have a 3D Touch capable iPhone, use the Chrome browser. In Chrome, hold down on the picture and tap Open in new tab.

save the necessary url parts in notepad and copypaste them from there. or simply memorize the url parts like i did

soup.io does dynamic rescaling, you can put in any number and it rescales the image to that resolution. Avoid soup.io, because you cannot access the original image at all.

Well, is this edition uspcaled? It's the highest resolution I can find, but if it became so from upscaling then it's for naught.

Deleting the value alltogether seems to give version where there's no visible scaling going on: http://asset-c.soupcdn.com/asset/13944/6942_cf61.jpeg
Usually these sites as they use that value as multiplier, removing it or setting it to 0 usually gets you at least closer to original.

Sadly can confirm what Kira said that you can just input massive numbers and the site will upscale the content for you. Largest version I can get from there is 4000x3556, which is incredibly clear upscale, but where it's possible to somewhat calculate from pixels that it has been upscaled by 3-4 times, which would fit the above links resolution.

If I compare this version to the tumblr you linked, that tumblr version does seem upscaled and more compressed.

Does anybody know how to get the tumblr link from this furaffinity link?

Hmm... is there any way to search for such files using FA's search? I tried @filename media&@filename tumblr, 2ftumblr and many others, no success so far. The query @filename tumblr works somewhat, but produces way too many false positives (filename with the second id isn't enough to get the download link, you need both ids) and definitely some false negatives (Marjani's post isn't included if I add @lower marjani).

Not that it would be very useful, as Tumblr blogs are rarely secret, but I'm curious anyway. 🙄

TL;DR if you're saving images from tumblr, change "1280" to "raw" in the url first!

I have a hunch most images uploaded here which come from tumblr are shrunken.

Yeah, but that’s why the “resize image” is there.

My bad, I meant the “resize image” button on the post. I was saying that under the options of a post that the button helps enlarge the post so it doesn’t matter if the post was shrunken from tumblr, if I’m wrong I apologize.

This is at the level that let me break it down for smaller pieces. You are wrong, but only because you are looking at it from your own angle as user who views content here.

Yes, this site will also serve you downscaled content according to your user settings.
Samples (default to guests and new users) will show you 800x800 restricted JPG of the image until you click to see full image or download. Dynamic scaling (default for older users) will limit the resolution of the image to fit page horizontally until you click full size or download. You can check your user settings to see these and toggle it if you want to.

However the problem here is that you can create 800x800 pixel image from e.g. 3000x3000 pixels large image, but you will never ever get that original 3000x3000 from that 800x800 ever. This is the problem and this is why the tumblr situation was so huge deal, because up to this point everyone was uploading 1280x1280 pixel sized resized versions of much larger images. At this point you have to distinguish that even if this doesn't effect you personally as individual user right now, this does have much more to it which will effect others now and might even effect you in future, wouldn't be first time when someone ripped all their CDs at 128kbps WMA files.

One of the goals of this site is to archive, to have highest quality variation stored. That means that if there is that 3000x3000 available, that should be the version that is in here as well, not the 1280 version and 800 version is automatically created for users who want to view content without worrying content scaling out of bounds or draining their data caps.
