Is This Method Violating Amazon TOS in 2017?

Hello,

I recently read a method (from 2016) to bypass AdBlock users when advertising amazon products. When you get a text+image link of a product, you get an image as a preview. Then I snap that preview and upload it as an image of its own and link it to the product.

Today, someone told me quite the opposite – that this violates the TOS of Amazon. Is that true?
