Hi all as you know our friend Luke was Killed at the weekend.

 

I'm trying to figure a way out of resurrecting photo bucket pictures then capturing his build thread on pdf or similar so I can capture it for Frankie

 

Is there a way to do this ??

Photobucket has gone through some changes, and after wiping what they had, they resurected what they had, but now blurred for public use.

 

I just checked my own photobucket, and when i don't pay, i am still able to download my images in good resulution.
You may need to work with Frankie to make this happen, as you will need to login with Luke's account.

If Frankie does not have Luke's photobucket password, a password reset via the photobucket website may be needed.
It will be send to Luke email box, which will be another password challange.

It might be a bit clunky but if you right click on the page somewhere and then select Print... you can then see in the Print options that you can change the destination to be PDF and publish the thread as that. It does literally take everything on the page so looks a little bit amateur but will capture everything, I think!

if you scroll right to the end , at the bottom of the page ( left ) , next to the orange button , there is a change theme , ip.board mobile gives a more condense format suitable to then print to a pdf

You can do it all online here (or they have a tool to download and do it on your PC, if you'd prefer)

 

https://www.pdfmerge.com/

 

You'll need to be careful to upload the individual pdf's in the correct order before doing the actual merge.

Are you saying that there's over 1,000 pages? I just tried it and the total thread came to 30-something pages of A4.

Thoughts on the front cover.
Has been suggested "in memory of Luke and his passion for cars"
