Hi Sam,

I am recently having these "This image or video is currently unavailable" images.

Is there anyway to prevent from getting these images? 

I am was looking for a picture of a "cats" and compared my search results to the one that I have already have downloaded. When I check the image of one of those kinds of images in I am able to see the picture, and it doesn't look like the user is private or their picture has some CC on it.

Is there a way to fix this on PhotoSearchOptions?

ok I got my answer.


string url = photo.DoesLargeExist ? photo.LargeUrl : photo.Medium640Url,


I am hoping I could get the original url. But using "photo.OriginalUrl" gives me Null values.

Original values are only returned if a) you request them, via PhotosSearchExtras.OriginalFormat, b) the user whose photo it is is a pro user and c) the user whose photo it is allows the downloading of their photos.
