Comprehensive image and gallery security

tour-mid-image-security-03

Right-Click Save Disabled – It may look like it’s working, but any attempted theft will only save an invisible pixel called “kittens.gif”. Right click protection now covers all images, thumbnails and slider animations.

Password Protection – Lock down galleries with secure passwords, or for even greater security, force your customers to login before they can even see any available public or secure galleries.

Watermarking – Upload your own logo (or use one of our pre-made graphics) and dynamically brand all of your images without affecting your originals.

 

Streamlined workflow
