Nothing can stop screen shots. But they are not going to be the same as a high resolution download.

Select the highest resolution available and then do several screen shots of different areas of the image and then stitch them together.

Well then Flickr should add image security for their fee. Anyone can steal anything from Flickr.

how are people stealing anything on flickr? screenshots?

They can also go to the source code and find the actual image file. I won't say how it can be done so dishonest people won't try it, but anyone who knows how to debug a website can figure it out.

As others have noted, the only sure way to protect yourself is to limit the resolution of the images.

The thing is that under Yahoo management pro members were encouraged to switch to a free account. Because free accounts have ads. This was important for advertisers and Yahoo just wanted to make money. So we got offered free accounts with unlimited space. I had been a pro member from the start but switched to a free account not long ago. Now, under Smugmug management this is turning against us. People uploaded tons of images because they were encouraged to do so and now they need to pay to keep up or have anything above 1000 images deleted. That's simply not right.

Sure, Smugmug can increase flickr fees, even though a 100% increase is rather steep. But to delete photos is just wrong.

When Photobucket pulled its trick it kind of broke the internet. All those holes everywhere, images replaced by ugly placeholders. Photobucket became the most hated company around. Now Smugmug deleting images on flickr will result in even more broken links and ugly placeholders. I do not for one second believe that of all non-paying members only 3% have more than 1000 images in their photostream. It is simply not true. And then again, if it is indeed only 3%, then why bother with them at all? It would be negligible. And as Pekka said earlier, it makes no sense to allow high res uploads when the free accounts need to be reduced to 1000 images because of space.

But whatever it is, deleting images is wrong!

I agree here. Sure, TOS; they can so whatever they want. But, if the business model has long been free reliable storage and images are linked in places all over the web for a good part of the life of the internet, you kinda have a responsibility in maintaining internet integrity. I'm not being silly in my response, either. If you are contributing to global knowledge via the internet in an impactful way, even if in a backbone or storage capacity, you have some responsibility to maintain that integrity, or hand it off in a way that it can be sufficiently maintained. This change isn't the only possible way to boost revenue.

You CAN select an area in High Sierra.

I always used Command, Shift, 3 which took the entire screen. I never explored anything beyond that because if needed an isolated area I just used Grab. Sometimes when I wanted to take a shot of a particular area the drop down menu would disappear so I'd use Command, Shift, 3 and crop.

Mojave is now called Screen Shot instead of Grab. You can still use Command, Shift, 3 for the whole screen. I'll have a look to see where I can control the size of a screen shot not using Grab.

So it is Command, Shift, 4. The utility Grab is just as handy to use expect for the drop downs which I did a full screen shot. That was just text so IQ didn't matter. Another option that is good to know about.

Command Shift 4 Spacebar will give you a little camera icon that you can use for menus and dialogue boxes.

I just got my flickr account up and running again - I had to work through flickr by email, they swapped my email accounts over as I could not get into it by my old email, I had 2600 pics in there so Im being ruthless and chopping what I dont need and downloading back into my hdd what I might want to keep.
Atleast its a good oportunity to do soe spring cleaning and only keep what I really want.

P.


Some stuff.

Thanks. I did a search and found it. Another good tool. Grab was only annoying for drop downs when doing a screen shot to illustrate something on forum but that was seldom.

Flickr actually has a download button that allows anyone to grab images:

IMAGE: http://diamantstudios.ca/Gemeines/Bilder/Flickr_dwnld.jpg

It's always been there, in one form or another. Thus, if you wanna protect your images, upload them in crappy res, watermark them, or host them elsewhere, like your own website.

Who hasn't done screen grabs online?

Unless of course the Account Holder has disabled downloading.

you can only download if the user allows it...i disabled downloads except for family and friends...so you can see a larger size of the image, but i still don't see how you could actually steal anything, aside from a screengrab
