I'm getting screens with:
"AccessDeniedAccess Denied" (and then a bunch of characters)
when I try the "data" and "raw" trick to get the source file resolution. Honestly, have no idea what to do now.

It appears as though we will be unable to access raw urls for the foreseeable future, according to these two threads.

For the foreseeable future? Is this intended as a temporary change then?

I have absolutely no idea, though I do hope that raw urls do become available again.

Well, lets see. I'll update the code if someone figures out how to access them now.

Personally, I think they've done it on purpose and it will not come back. It was never officially announced, and always looked like some kind of hack/neglection/unfinished features, thus I'm guessing they don't care at all.

If a solution is figured out, will TumblThree be able to upgrade all these 1280 sized images to raw automatically?

so uh, I noticed something odd about raw images. They seem to load up for like, a split second, and then you're redirected to that denied page.

I swear it's like you get a split second glimpse, and I tested this with images I never loaded up before.

I'm not sure at all if this is helpful information.

Has anyone made any progress with this at all? Is there anything in the official API that might help out? https://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/api/v2

Well, it was never really part of the API doc in the first place..

_raw URLs were never even officially a thing, and I don't think Tumblr was particularly pleased to have people find out about them and start downloading large image files. Costs bandwidth, y'know.

I will be surprised if they are ever exposed again.

Tumblr could use some good press, and could benefit by exhibiting some goodwill..
Just sayin'

I'm still not convinced it's impossible after the change. You do get to see a glimpse of the image before you get the XML error page. There may be a way to extract the image data without the file headers.

Uh, what?
Did you try that with an empty cache/browser profile/new|different browser?

You can download Raw images if you go to the settings of your profile and click on "export", it will download a zip file that contains everything in your blog (including reblogs) but it will take some days to process.

Yeah, but you can only "export" your own blog.
So the reblogs included on your own blog you mention here won't be full/raw files.

I downloaded my own blog using Tumblr's built in export can can confirm reblogs ARE in the full/raw resolution. However all filenames are based on the post ID instead of the file ID so you will have duplicates for anything you've reblogged multiple times.
