    for those people who use Flickr as online file backup, do think carefully. you are paying money and put your original photos online, let totally strangers access to your files, that is really unthinkable.

    use a proper online file backup services instead, no one can access to the files except you.

    if you want to showcase your portfolio, quality counts, not quantity.

    actually u can upload two version, one version (lower quality + copyright for showcase purpose) then another version (full quality), one set to public one set to private. That should suffice.

    yes i guess so.

    u can also remove that download link for people to try download your photos:
    http://www.flickr.com/help/photos/#85

    when people right click and try to do a save as, they will get another blank image file. Although the person still can do a screenshot and crop out the photo

    as long it shows up in other people screen, the photo is already INSIDE their computer, all they need is to know where to find the photo IN their computer.

    beside, can't do a "save as" is only can stop people who are not computer savvy, have you hear about "view page source"?

    yes, that i know. I am an IT person as well. view source is too trouble some even for those IT savvy to look thru the codes. by the way if I did not rem wrong, the codes appear slightly different when you apply this setting.
    eg:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/keeptou...n/photostream/ (you can try view source)

    screen shot (print screen) is faster. but then the size displayed by default is too small. so even if the person did that, he can only get a small copy so if he resize the photo to make it bigger, image quality will lose.
    eg:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/keeptou...n/photostream/

    at best the person can do a screenshot of this size. but if he resize bound to lose photo quality.

    i can say flickr done quite well to this extent already to protect the ownership of the photo for the photographer.

    No need to view source code lah. There is this function in firefox (tool>page info>media) where you can choose to download any presented files. I seen CSers uploaded full res(12MP) on flickr too.

    As for my case, I prefer self-host than community style. It has more flexiblity but can be time consuming.

    haha no worries. like kineticworks says, firefox got a function to download the photos.

    anyway the best way for your photos not to be stolen is not to upload in the first place haha.

    Another alternative way is to put signature. So that if the person steal your image also no use.

    There is a tool to remove signature.
    I would say there is no 100% secure for anything that is online.

    I use brush tool in Photoshop to do my signatures on pictures. So no matter what they can't remove it

    But they could clone or crop though..
