    That would be a violation of the Flickr Terms of Service.

    Are you sure? In some of my other Flickr plugin’s there isn’t a link or wasn’t one unti recently?

    Basically, I’m trying to keep people from being able to save photos from the website. I’ve already disabled the right click function, but when in slideshow mode, there’s a link to view on flickr.

    Yes, Flickr explicitly says that if your site displays an image or video hosted on Flickr’s servers, you must provide a link back to each image or video’s page on Flickr. If you removed that link, Flickr might revoke your API key and your account’s ability to set up new API keys.

    Their API TOS — http://www.flickr.com/services/api/tos/ — says “You shall… comply with the Flickr Community Guidelines”

    The Community Guidelines — http://www.flickr.com/guidelines.gne — says “pages on other web sites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr.”

    As far as other plugins go, if they don’t provide a link back, using them puts you in violation of the Flickr TOS. I don’t want to put my plugin’s users in that position, so I do not provide a way to remove that link.
