A simple Firefox add on downloaded all your images in a few seconds.

Pointing this out does not mean we believe they are there for the taking it means just as others have said your photos are not safe once they are posted on the web.

Watermark them but there really isn't anything else you can do.

My kid was just in Disney World running a race. There were several photographers all over the course. She was provided a link to purchase photos. The website has such small previews that are watermarked in such a way that even if you could see the photos they would be so distorted as to make a purchasing decision impossible.

At 59 bucks I would really like to see the photos before spending that kind of money.

So in that case the company lost a $59 dollar sale because I couldn't make out the quality of the photos. And yes I would spend the money as a gift to my daughter and fiancee but not without knowing hat i was getting.

Do what you thinks is best.
