Support » Plugin: Image and video gallery from Google Drive » Prevent image download

    This plugin works quite well, thank you. However, I would like to secure the images from being downloaded and can’t find a way to do that in either this plugin or in Google Drive’s settings. In the link I’ve provided, when you mouse over the thumbnail images or look at the full-size ones, the Download arrow is prominently displayed. Is there any way to turn this off?
    Thank you,
    -Jack

    Hi,
    on the web, there is fundamentally no way to show someone an image without them being able to download it – the browser needs to download it to display it, after all.

    That being said, you can make it harder for people – either by using a plugin that prevents right-clicking on the webpage, or by using a lower resolution for when you show the images (you can set this in the advanced settings of this plugin). Both of these can be circumvented, but it will stop the vast majority of users.
