How To Steal Photos on Flickr
I found the photo I needed (for offline use) but unfortunately, the photo had been "protected" by Flickr and I could only save a spaceball.gif file. But that wasn't a problem, really. *Evil grin*
Here's an extremely easy way to steal or leech "protected" photos on Flickr:
1. Use Firefox to go to the Flickr page where the photo resides and hit Ctrl-U. This will bring up the page source window.
2. Hit Ctrl-F, key "jpg" (without the quotes) into the Find field and hit Return/Enter until you see something that goes like http://farm1.static.flickr.com/.... under the "noscript" section.
3. Copy and paste the URL into your URL field.
4. That's it. You can now save the Flickr photo. :-)
