Locating the original image
If uploaded via the Magento admin, the original image is located at
So getting the original URL is pretty easy, just remove the cache directory path and hash.
If uploaded via dataflow/import, the original image is located in
But beyond there would be guesswork. However people want to format their upload DIR for import is really up to them and the subdirectory the images are in really isn't relevant - as they provide the relative path to the image when uploading.
A bit about the md5 Hash
($this->_keepAspectRatio ? '' : 'non') . 'proportional', ($this->_keepFrame ? '' : 'no') . 'frame', ($this->_keepTransparency ? '' : 'no') . 'transparency', ($this->_constrainOnly ? 'do' : 'not') . 'constrainonly', $this->_rgbToString($this->_backgroundColor), 'angle' . $this->_angle, 'quality' . $this->_quality,
Optional args if there is a watermark
$this->getWatermarkFile(), $this->getWatermarkImageOpacity(), $this->getWatermarkPosition(), $this->getWatermarkWidth(), $this->getWatermarkHeigth() md5(implode('_', $miscParams));
So for example, with the defaults
md5 hash could be the same across the entire site - for every image, but you would need to figure out the values used to generate it. You could brute force it relatively easily.
This is the default Magento value for the hash
