Is it Just Me ??? Re File Retrival

I have just gone to a picture to add it to some groups & reply to comments etc, when i noticed that in “edit this work” mode there is a File Uploaded under Information
This has a link to the original work of art I uploaded , full sized !
Maybe this has always been there , but i was so relieved to see this , as i have recently lost a lot of work from my computer & wow its SO good to know they are all still here So Yippeeee :-)))))
I dont care if Im the last doofus on Redbubble to realise this , as Im just so pleased to have all my work around me again!!!

    Thanks for pointing this out Jules. I think that it is relatively new.
    They did used to have just the file name, but not the actual pic.

  • Glad you are all getting some advantages from this post :-)))

    No it’s me too..I checked it out and when i got to the original upload,I was able to copy it back to my computer..The original was 7.34 MB,the copy 7.33 MB so it’s good to see we now have a RB file retrieval system..but I don’t think there was a big announcement. (I always liked Flikr for letting you recover full size files,glad RB have seen the light)

  • Yes i use Flickr too , & hide my best stuff on there from prying eyes , Doofus Thursday Its official LOL

    OK, if you have lost artworks/photographs etc, BUT, now the watermarks that RB provide to place over our images seem pointless now.
    Thieves beware comes to mind !! WAY too easy to grab your images now.
    Just my 2 pennies worth. Not a bright idea by RB.

    PLEASE……forget my response. I had a blonde moment then. No one else can access our accounts and can only be seen by us LMAO

    It sounds scary to me!
    I agree with Jay Letterman; it sounds like a portal for photo thieves to steal your image files ~ I don’t like it
    we have had problems with image grabbing thieves on Redbubble before, and theen finding them turning up elsewhere

    Of course Redbubble needs to keep our original on file as they are required if our products sell;

    and you do need the access key ID; which we previously didn’t have access to; but now we have

    I do agree that it is handy to have access to our images if we have lost them and didn’t have back up

    I didn’t know that either, but it’s good news for me because I had a catastrophic failure some months ago and lost a lot of my originals, now I can get them back, oooooh I’m a happy bunny.
    Thanks for pointing this out Jules, you are a star

  • I feel your pain !!! But a nice happy ending for both of us , its all the harder to take when they are textured works too , as no way , even with the original can you reproduce the damn things again !
