Need original image via findItemsAdvanced, not 140px thumbnail.

The ebay search "organic cloves" right now turns up five results. I am using the findItemsAdvanced command and the &outputSelector(0)=PictureURLLarge&outputSelector(1)=SellerInfo&outputSelector(2)=PictureURLSuperSize' filter.

Two auctions return both Large and SuperSize images. Great.

Auction 154565799274 has a very large "click to enlarge" image associated with it. However, it returns only a "[alphabet salad]140.jpg" "large" thumbnail image.
Auction 384204814211 has a non-zoomable 424px image. However, it returns only a "[alphabet salad]140.jpg" "large" thumbnail image.
Auction 363506448256 has the same 424px image. It also returns only a "[alphabet salad]140.jpg" "large" thumbnail image.

How can I get the filename for the large 424px original image that appears on each of these auctions? "GalleryInfo" only returns filenames for 140px, 96px, and 80px.
I tried "&outputSelector=$outputSelector" in various combinations and still only got the 140px thumbnails.

This obviously isn't limited to organic cloves. I would say about 10% of searches have this problem. 140px thumbnails worked great fifteen, twenty years ago. Now, on a 1920 screen, they're just nearly worthless.
