dree12: Yes, thanks. Waiting for someone to do something about it that I can't.

If you go to the .jpg page (actually .html) and right click on the image you should be able to get the link to the actual image. This is just a way for them to get more ad revenue as when you link just the image they will not get any ad impressions (revenue).

Already addressed.

Yeah but the whole point of putting out thumbnails is they drive traffic to Photobucket.com instead of just having hotlink bandwidth wasted.

I want the thumbnails in my posts. I have no problem with the thumbnails driving traffic, because everyone should have AdBlock Plus, etc. The original images and even the medium scale ones are WAY TOO FUCKING BIG FOR A FORUM. So the thumbnails need to work.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

I get a image/jpg [sic—the correct MIME type is image/jpeg]

This was the problem. The image proxy has a whitelist of allowed content-types. image/jpg is invalid and was therefore not allowed. I allowed it. (Photobucket should really fix this, though.)

The image proxy didn't send an Accept header, so that was not part of the problem.

Thanks for looking into it.

By the way:

Code:
[img width=100 height=100]http://image[/img]

Produces a shrunk version of the given image (measurements in pixels).

For example, this:

Same amount of bandwidth to scale an image down in dimensions but not filesize effectively client-side.
