NOTE: HTTP/HTTPS HEAD request Disabled on the Photo CDN 8/2/2022
The HTTP/HTTPS HEAD request has been disabled on the Photo CDN 8/2/2022.
When pulling images, please use HTTP/HTTPS GET requests instead.
Thanks much, wondering if you can explain the reasoning? We haven't utilized HEAD requests yet but we were just working on a feature that would. Our hope was that we could check to verify whether images changed (as opposed to just the metadata changing for example) via HEAD request. This would save time and bandwidth compared to running a GET request that we ended up not needing. We could still do that, it'll just have more overhead now.
