Jerry Keefer posts;pictures are missing

Post by bruce martindale on 12/30/2017, 9:51 am

I used the link that compiles Jerry's posts and then read the specific post in entirety but the pictures are not there. This man was such a treasure ...

is there any way to see the photos he took?

Thanks all, happy new year

Have to pay for a photo bucket account to view pics I believe. It’s a photobucket thing

Worse than that, Jerry would have had to pay $400 annually to make the pictures available to view in links. It was the great photobucket hold up.  Consider those pics long gone Sad

Nope, even if you go to Google or any other archives if the pictures were hosted on the Photobucket site you can't access them.  Photobucket deactivated the links to the pictures unless you paid/pay the $400 to activate the links to your pictures. 

If the pictures were hosted somewhere else then maybe yes you might be able to recover them, Jerry used Photobucket for many(most?) of his pictures, as did many of us.

The pictures still exist, over 1400 of them, just not linked to the appropriate posts.

If someone can remind me after the 8th, I'll see what I can do. Not much time in front of a real computer between now and then.

And to add insult to injury, Photobucket WILL NOT allow you to download any pics on their sight in bulk.  If I wanted to get all of my pics and Jerrys I would have to click on each one, one at a time and email them to myself.  If anyone knows of a more reliable and friendly source for photo sharing please let me (us) know.

OK I think I got them all downloaded to my computer. I followed the instructions in this post.

Edit: OK, here they are. If you click "Download" at that link you will get a .zip file with all 1,440 images.

As a general production machinist, looking thru Jerry's picture is like traveling thru a art museum in steel. I only wish the story behind many was easily available.

KC, what's your Photobucket account name? Do you want me to download all of your photos like I did with Jerry's?

I did look into what could be done on the site admin side of things to see if we could do something to help, but unfortunately there is nothing stored on the forum of anyone’s outside of a very few photos and lots of text.  

We have no better tools behind the scenes for archival purpose than a regular user at the helm of the advanced search button.

Wow, thanks!  I'm not sure I'll ever see the posts linked to these photos, but just the photo's tell quite a story.  I continually wonder: how does (did) he keep everything so clean?  I struggle with that (always).  Incredible archive.
