Heritage Auction Website Requires You To Register

It seems that to view a larger size cover of any comic (or another item) on HA requires you to register.  No longer can we just click on a comic cover to see it larger.  This stinks!

That's actually a reversion to something we had to do for years, actually.

If anybody ever needs a heritage cover for a scan here but doesn't want to register, let me know and I can get it for you.  I've got an account (and several posted books here that I originally won on heritage.

I just downloaded some full size cover images without logging in.
Everything seems to be functioning the same for me.
I flush cookies regularly with a web developer plugin. I even log out of web sites by flushing cookies because it works faster and more thoroughly.

There was one weekend awhile back where the image files had a ".jfif suffix and it was making it look like there was no image file downloading. I can't remember exactly what I was seeing. Either way, I was able to download the files and change the suffix from ".jfif" to ".jpg" and they open fine. I may have had to do the drop down on the file download box to view all file formats.

I'm still having problems.  I wanted to save some covers for my personal entertainment.   I wanted Marvel's Godzilla series (1 to 24), Whiz Comics #70, Mary Marvel #8 and probably several other Fawcetts since I can't download the comics themselves.  I figured having the covers was better than nothing.  I tried registering when I hit a snag.  Heritage asked for a user name and I typed one then it told me to use a valid user name.  I don't understand.  What is and isn't a valid name?  All this trouble to save a handful of covers.  *sigh*

On the registration page, it says this, under the "User Name" box:
Quote
Up to 25 characters with only letters, numbers, spaces and underscores (_)
Were you including other characters than those?

Yes, I was.  I went ahead and logged on through my Facebook profile.  I can save large scans now.  Thanks for the help.
