    I don't think there is an easy way to do this. And I sort of hope
    not. I think this was the intention of Flickr in offering a static
    url option: It allows you to link to a specific image without having
    to potentially share all of your Flickr content. I think it is a Good

    "THCganja". From the Netherlands, no less.

    But perhaps flickr has indeed intentionally 'cloaked' the urls to
    images to dissociate them from their accounts.

    It doesn't seem to work that way.
    E.g. when I search for "4182025052", I get no
    search results whatsoever.

    So that method seems to fail when trying to obtain a link to the
    account associated with the following picture:
