Hi,
Here's a good one for you all to ponder...
I just D/L'd that image...(Right click & Save as...) using both Firefox v20 & 62, but when I tried to view them in
Windows Picture Viewer, it reported that the .png file, (all 63 Kb of it), was either Damaged, Corrupt or Too large.
Weird one!

Windows 8 Picture Viewer (not app) shows valid png, also graphics program and winhex shows png header.

The image is a .png. (The correct file size is 254,233.)

That photobucket (what crap that is) does some "trickery" to hide the image from you, & that a browser "Save Image As" doesn't actually download an "image" (but rather a html web page, in this case) is a different matter.

Correct.

does some "trickery"

thats some code running on server which deny direct access - when entering the picture url it redirects to the page again where it belongs.

I'm not so sure that it is "66".
I believe something changed with the PB website.
