There is no "raw" image URL in Jamroom - all image requests must go through Jamroom's Image support module. However, you can use the "original" size to get what you want. Just make sure the "Block Original Download" option is UNCHECKED in the Core -> Image Support -> Global Config, then you can request the "original" size image - just use "original" instead of large, xlarge, etc.

Note that this is done so Jamroom can properly handle profile privacy.

Let me know if that helps.

So yes, I use the proper image URL with "original" and this works..
.However, itunes keeps reporting an error when running it through their podcast validation website.
The image shows up in their validation, but also reports an error...
and I'm thinking it's because they want to see the source URL?

This is the error itunes reports

Podcast artwork must be between 1400 x 1400 and 3000 x 3000 pixels, JPG or PNG, in RGB color space, and hosted on a server that allows HTTP head requests.

I know the image size, format, and color space meet the requirements..and I've validated the http header requests were working from a different validation site

I have a feeling it is related to the HEAD request. What is the URL to one of your images so I can check it out from here? I can look at it in the AM and let you know. The URL shouldn't matter and I don't think that is the issue.

WARNING: Image file is not typed properly--for content type image/jpeg, the file extension should be one of the following: jpg, jpeg, jpe.

OK - just add /image.jpg to the end of the image - if you're doing it in a loop in a template it will be something like:

[cpde]
/image.{$item.audio_image_extension}
[/code]

Here's your forum image here with /image.jpg added to the end (note that JR doesn't care about it):

You can just add /image.jpg to the end - i.e..

https://www.playgroundz.rocks/webhosting/profile/image/profile_image/2/original/image.jpg

Just note - if you are generating these image URLs inside a template, you will need to use the right template variable for the extension - i.e. $item.audio_image_extension

If you KNOW all your images are JPG images, you can just use /image.jpg at the end of your image URLs.
