Limit access to your originals

Last Updated: Nov 03, 2014 11:08AM CET
You can limit the maximum resolution your photos are accessible in. If you do so, your visitors will not be able to access your photographs in any higher resolution than the one specified anywhere on our site. However, if prints or products are ordered, we still send the original to the lab for production.

You can limit the largest photo size your visitors can access by going to "Customize" >> "Site Settings" >> "Download" (▼). You can of course change the setting for individual albums by going to "Customize" or >> "Album Settings" >> "Download". But for the download option to work, you will also need to enable the button itself in "Site Settings" or "Album Settings" >> "Functionality" (▼▼). This allows you to keep all your download setting while turning on and off the option with a single change in the settings.

Do you still want some of your visitors to be able to access your photos in their original resolution? - this is where the password protection comes in. If you enable the password to access original images, anyone who knows or manages to guess the password will be able to download the protected photos in their original resolution.

How do I enable the password protection for originals? You can set up the password by going to "Customize" >> "Site Settings" >> "Download". You can of course change the setting for individual albums by going to "Customize" or >> "Album Settings" >> "Download".
 
How does it work? With the password disabled, the protected entries in the download menu are simply grayed-out and disabled (▼►). However, if you enable the password, they are marked as password protected and can be clicked (▼◄). Your visitors are asked for the password and after the correct password has been entered, the download will start.

 


What can I do next? You can review other photo protection options, consider enabling the right-click protection or applying watermarks.
