How to disable image downloading on flickr

Disabling image downloads on flickr makes it harder for people to access your files.

Please be aware that it is not impossible for people to download them but just makes it harder - so is a deterrent only.

On your flickr 'home' page there is a blue tab underneath the flickr logo at the top of the page called 'You'. To the right of this there is a little grey arrow. Click on the grey arrow and scroll down to 'Your Account'. Personal information will be highlighted in pink at the top and next to that there is a tab called 'Privacy & Permissions'.

Click on 'Privacy & Permissions' and the first heading under the pink 'Global Settings' is 'Who can access your original image files?'. Over to the right of this heading is an underlined 'edit'.

Click on 'edit' and highlight the button 'Only You'. Then 'Save' the page.

All done. This now applies to all of your photos in your photostream in Flickr.
