How to Get to Someone's Photos on Tumblr

Tumblr's archive view displays all the posts and photos for a given period on a single screen, making it easier to look through and find specific pictures. This can save a considerable amount of time if you're looking for a specific picture or only want to see pictures as opposed to full posts — especially on Tumblr blogs that update frequently. Anybody can access the archive view by adding a single word to a Tumblr blog's URL.

Step

Go to the main page of the desired Tumblr blog and add /archive to the end of the URL.
