I guess downloading original images cant be done for legal reasons e.g.
privacy. Mapillary would only be allowed to publish images with
processing e.g. blurring faces, number plates etc. 

As a registered user i can access my originals. 

But my workflow is different. I changed to keep all images i upload. 
So in case Mapillary is going "belly up" i still have all my images
i still can use or reupload somewhere else. And i tried uploading
to openstreetcam aswell.

So - I am pretty clear about limits of Mapillary and i once wrote
my own toolchain to store and visualize and i could revive that.

I am still happy they exist and i uploaded 120000+ images covering
1000km+ - I did systematic street overview images for the towns i 
care about mapping. I did it in 2014/15 and now refreshing.

I wished OSM would offer a similar service integrated into our
toolsets etc. As long as we dont have it we need to be thankful
somebody else has build a businessmodel which pays for the gigantic
storage and processing needed.
