 And if you ever feel like you want to get a higher resolution image again:

Whenever a photographer uploads a picture to Pinkbike, it is scaled down and then displayed on the site, but the original is still stored on the Pinkbike servers. To download the photo, all we have to do is make a URL that will take us to the high resolution photo.

Steps are as follows:

1. Choose a photo to download. (Must be an image with the # 1000000 or greater)
2. Type "lp1.pinkbike.org/p0pb" into your browsers URL bar followed by the photo # you wish to download, then "/", then the # again, and finally ".jpg"
3. Press enter and the photo should either load, or a message should pop up allowing you to download it.

To give you an example, your URL should look something like this: "lp1.pinkbike.org/p0pb(image #)/(image #).jpg"

A few things to keep in mind:
- This only works on images after 1000000. (Before this the original version was stored elsewhere)
- Not all photos have a high resolution versions available. Some photographers don't upload super high resolution version for various reasons.

 and now some extra steps.

- tell the photographer you are using his image as background
- compliment him on his great photo.
- say thank you for the free service he providing you with his image. (helps a lot)
- follow him on social media and support private projects if he has one.


- if practical. book the guy or recommend to other companies in need of photography.

Do it and more photographers will upload there work here in bigger resolutions and everyone is happy.

 I can't believe this is 1/80th second shutter! I would never have believed such a crisp action shot was possible at that speed. Clearly I know absolutely nothing about photography! Incredible shot.

 Thanks Smile Actually when you’re shooting with strobes, your shutter speed only have an impact on the constant light. A 1/80 shutter speed allowed me to have a brighter background. The action is frozen thanks to the high speed of the flash light.
