    Hi Dan,

    Unfortunately there is no way to prevent people taking screenshots of your website, short of not having a website. This is just part of having an online presence. A transparent layer is already applied to PhotoShelter sites if you use the Image Theft Guard, but this prevents image downloading and right-clicking but not screenshots. This is the case for all websites, not just PhotoShelter.

    The most effective method that I know is to use watermarks. I have seen sites that prevent screen captures, but I don't know how they do it, except that it seems to be browser dependent. In other words it works on some browsers but not others.

    The real downside to screenshots that I've noticed is that they seem to be hi-res. I checked some photos we have posted and they are 3-4MB in size. It would be lots better if the image captured was truly a thumbnail in the kb range. I wonder if Photoshelter can do that. I thought galleries were thumbnails, but don't know what file size they might be. Thanks. Max

    Max, yes if we upload a tiny 72 dpi file to the gallery they will be very grainy if it is enlarged, but I am typically uploading ( 2MB 300 dpi) files that my clients can download - or that will look when viewed on the screen.
