Image Bypass

Image Bypass is a web service that runs on node.js to perform translation of "image service" address to the actual image address.

For example, the service will translate

http://instagr.am/p/EInFJ/

into

http://images.instagram.com/media/2011/05/11/3597ce7533a640ad954caaf6afe0e60a_7.jpg

All service details are defined in imageServices.js.
