Do 4chan image links 404 with the thread?

We all know that threads 404 in a matter of minutes if they have bad material, and at most, a successful thread stays active for at most (at least in /b/) 2 hours.
My question is, what about image links? Do you happen to know if image links 404 along with a thread? And if image links stay longer than thread links, how long do they stay as active links? (i.e., lets say I copy paste an image link from 4chan because I don't want to download the image directly to my computer. If I try to open up this link at another time [whether a few hours from now, a few days, etc], would 4chan still have that link active to let me view the image? Or does it 404 after a specific time?)
I've gotten mixed responses from /b/ and this forum should obviously help me out better. Some said that only threads 404, but image links do not. But why would a website like this (http://www.4chanlink.org/) exist if 4chan images DIDN'T 404? That website downloads the image from the direct 4chan link and "mirrors" it on their site for around 14 days.
Curious because this is obviously an image board, and it seems like undue stress on the servers if image links stayed active longer than threads.

I am SICK of seeing this ugly whore's face and a 300 reply thread everytime I go on to /v/
I am SICK of the endless tfw no gf, stoner, deminist and all offtopic threads
I am SICK of the obnoxious use of greentexting and "Le XD trol u Epic Maymay2 ironic shitposting that is passed off as "v culture when called out"
I am SICK of this Reddit obsession /v/ has had for the past two years
I am SICK of how accepting this bard has been to ignorant cancerous normalfags
And quite frankly, I am SICK of all the limp dick /v/ mods
So I propose this. A harsh and sustained clampdown on /v/. This shit has been festering for so long, /v/ is incapable of self moderation, due to the vast numbers of posters happy to wallow in their own shit. outside intervention is the only way of getting /v/ out of the shitter and so far, outside intervention has been pathetic.
And don't give that "B-but /v/ is too fast a board!" bullshit. There are plenty of ways to overcome this. Mods make their bans count by dishing out long public bans, (None of this 3 day ban rubbish) with the occasional mass public banning to set an example.
Ironic shitposting and anything related to feel, feminism or reddit is now a bannable offense.
Shitty overused words like XD, Reddit, lel, le, Maymay are now wordfiltered.
Anyone bumping or contributing to an off-topic thread is instantly banned, zero tolerance. And when I say banned, I mean BANNED. Not a three day ban. A weeks ban or maybe even a month long ban.
