Security is considered at every level, from the online tools to networks to physical facilities. When you access Photoshop.com, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology is used for server authentication, helping to protect your data and access. Additionally, Photoshop.com leverages firewall protection, intrusion detection systems, SSL encryption, and proprietary protocols to help protect your important information. Multiple layers of physical security protect the Photoshop.com hosting facilities—only authorized personnel have access to the facilities and servers.

How are our precious images protected on photoshop.com?
Is my gallery secure?
I do not see anything addressing this issue, no "right click protected", no setting for putting watermark on; watermarks aren't that helpful except it emphasizes to people who don't think it is a big deal that you are a person and you care about your images, we are not corporations or stock image companies.

You're correct that people can right-click an image in your gallery and save it. However, they'd only be downloading the low-res image. Also, when you set up your albums, you can determine what actions viewers can take with your images. If you don't want people to download your images, deselect Allow Viewers To Save Images In This Album in the album settings.

I am not clear about what you are saying: do you mean they can download a low-res image by right-clicking or other method even if I HAVE deselected "allow viewers to save images?"

Or does deselected "Allow" mean that they cannot download anything, whether it be low-res or anything by any means including right-click?

Thank you.

Nothing can stop people from saving what is on their screen. You can stop them from downloading and saving the high res image. But if they can see an image, they can save that screen version of the image.

Is the metedata (like ©, zip code, etc) part of the low res image and how can it be accessed by the photographer?

I have the same issue. Someone shared their picture to facebook and now the whole world can get prints. I was hoping to be able to use this without putting a watermark on everything.
