There is a way to view a website which is down via the cached version of website provided by Google. Now, I'm wondering if there's a way to view images which are removed but cached by Google in original quality as if they were opened by link and not the Google's thumbnail view?
Perhaps helpful, it is an example for Google, but maybe it's similar to other search engines.
Perhaps you already know how to search cached websites, so it could be used in e.g. in googles image search (advanced) :
in the search box or words to filter type e.g. "cache:www.someSite.com"
