Idea is to put all knowledge about sites ("1st place" sources — not boorus) behavior in one single place. It may help you to understand, which sites tend to provide better quality pics.
 
__**ALWAYS ORIGINAL**__  
Most prioritized, always provides images in original quality. In *italic* — not 100% sure, but no cases to put it lower.  
- **Aryion**;  
- **Inkbunny** __(but be sure to upload not a thumbnail!)__;  
- **NewGrounds**;  
- ***NewTumbl***;  
- ***Patreon*** (unsure about public posts);  
- ***Pillowfort*** (seems to provide originals, allows 3rd side images embed);  
- **Pixiv** (but sometimes fetch receives JPG instead of PNG).
 
----------------------------------
 
__**ORIGINAL IMAGES UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS**__
 
__**Upon artist choice**__  
Original image can be obtained, if artist allowed it in any way. Same priority, as previous, but should be checked.
- **DeviantArt** — if download explicitly allowed __(requires login and fetch does not work in this case!)__;  
- **FurAffunity** — if any image dimension is larger than 1280 ||(when image initially uploaded, it's compressed to JPG and 1280x1280 at most, but can be reuploaded again, then it won't be compressed)||;  
- **VK** — image can be uploaded as "document", usually [parallel upload](https://vk.com/wall-171680016_1577) (click on second image).
 
__**Reasonable technical limitations**__  
Sometimes image is present in original quality, sometimes not. It's not upon artist choice (at least, directly).
- **DeviantArt** — **sometimes** image can be zoomed in and it will result in original quality;  
- **Twitter** — if naturally PNG (url edit does not count!) and if any image dimension is not equal to 1024/2048/4096;  
- **Tumblr** — naturally PNG under 1280x1960 for pics with old url format and under 2048x3072 (any format) for newer.
 
__**"Exploits" exists**__  
Not explicitly accessible, missing from the UI.
-
**DeviantArt** — token can be omitted, provided by [gallery-dl](https://github.com/mikf/gallery-dl) or [ADUp DeviantArt userscript](/forums/meta/topics/userscript-semi-automated-derpibooru-uploader);  
- **DeviantArt** — **sometimes** original image will be provided in login page background, if opened from the image page;  
- **Portfolio.commishes** — [see here](/forums/uppers/topics/about-pngs-from-portfolio-commishes-com) ;  
- **Tumblr** — [see here](/forums/meta/topics/report-deviantart-high-resolution-images-here-for-updating?post_id=4134935#post_4134935) — for newer pics dimensions in URL can be edited (sometimes output will be forced JPEG), for older — reblog + dump blog  
- **ych.art** — append `?width=20000&height=20000` to the file link.
 
----------------------------------
 
__**NOT ORIGINAL IMAGES**__  
Listed roughly in quality order (may be duplicated based on the case):  
- **Twitter** — under 1024x1024, 2048x2048 or 4096x4096, JPG if no transparency;  
- **DeviantArt ("exploit")** — "intermediary" exploit for older images, under 6MPx, original format — [see here](/forums/meta/topics/report-deviantart-high-resolution-images-here-for-updating?post_id=4134935#post_4134935);  
- ~~**DeviantArt ("exploit")** — newer images under 6MPx can be retrived partially and combined later using "crop" API endpoint. However, lower right corner can be blurred;~~ now seems to always return upscaled publicly available image.
- **Tumblr** (new image url format) — under 2048x3072, original format;  
- **DeviantArt (""exploit"")** — thumb size upon artist choice (under 1920 pixels width), original format if thumb url edited to match, also 100% quality JPG is possible — [see here](/forums/meta/topics/report-deviantart-high-resolution-images-here-for-updating?post_id=4134935#post_4134935);  
- **VK** — under 2560x2160 (except **very** old images), always JPG;  
- **Tumblr** (old image url format) — under 1280x1920, can be JPG if image is too large;  
- **DeviantArt** — thumb size upon artist choice (under 1920 pixels width), JPG if no transparency;  
- **ych.art** — under 1600x1280, crisp zoom, original format;  
- **FurAffunity** — under 1280x1280, JPG if no transparency;  
- **Portfolio.commishes** — width can be 700, 960, 1920px, can be upscaled, crisp zoom, always indexed PNG;  
- **instagram** — somewhat under 1024-1600px, always heavily compressed JPG.

Elements of Harmony - Had an OC in the 2022 Community Collab
Non-Fungible Trixie -
Twinkling Balloon - Took part in the 2021 community collab.
Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.
Best Artist - Providing quality, Derpibooru-exclusive artwork
Fine Arts - Two hundred uploads with a score of over a hundred (Safe/Suggestive)
Economist -
Cool Crow - "Caw!" An awesome tagger
The Power of Love - Given to a publicly verified artist with an image under their artist’s tag that has reached 1000 upvotes
Equality - In our state, we do not stand out.

Idea is to put all knowledge about sites ("1st place" sources — not boorus) behavior in one single place. It may help you to understand, which sites tend to provide better quality pics.

+*ALWAYS ORIGINAL*+
Most prioritized, always provides images in original quality. In _italic_ — not 100% sure, but no cases to put it lower.
- *Aryion*;
- *Inkbunny* +(but be sure to upload not a thumbnail!)+;
- *NewGrounds*;
- *_NewTumbl_*;
- *_Patreon_* (unsure about public posts);
- *_Pillowfort_* (seems to provide originals, allows 3rd side images embed);
- *Pixiv* (but sometimes fetch receives JPG instead of PNG).

----------------------------------

+*UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS*+

+*Upon artist choice*+
Original image can be obtained, if artist allowed it in any way. Same priority, as previous, but should be checked.
- *DeviantArt* — if download explicitly allowed +(requires login and fetch does not work in this case!)+;
- *FurAffunity* — if any image dimension is larger than 1280 [spoiler](when image initially uploaded, it's compressed to JPG and 1280x1280 at most, but can be edited)[/spoiler];
- *VK* — image can be uploaded as "document", usually "parallel upload":https://vk.com/wall-171680016_1577 (click on second image).

+*Reasonable technical limitations*+
Sometimes image is present in original quality, sometimes not. It's not upon artist choice (at least, directly).
- *DeviantArt* — *sometimes* image can be zoomed in and it will result in original quality;
- *Twitter* — if naturally PNG (url edit does not count!) and if any image dimension is not equal to 1024/2048/4096;
- *Tumblr* — naturally PNG under 1280x1960 for pics with old url format and under 2048x3072 (any format) for newer.

+*"Exploits" exists*+
Not explicitly accessible, missing from UI.
- *Portfolio.commishes* — "see here":/forums/uppers/topics/about-pngs-from-portfolio-commishes-com ;
- *Tumblr* — "see here":/forums/meta/topics/report-deviantart-high-resolution-images-here-for-updating?post_id=4134935#post_4134935 — for newer pics dimensions in URL can be edited, for older — reblog + dump blog.

----------------------------------

+*NOT ORIGINAL IMAGES*+
Listed roughly in quality order (may be duplicated based on the case):
- *Twitter* — under 1024x1024, 2048x2048 or 4096x4096, JPG if no transparency;
