I am posting a bunch of old photos to the web using the Lightroom Classic web module export. When I look at them online, the web gallery looks fine-- when I click on a thumbnail I can see the larger image solo in the browser. The problem is if I right click on the larger solo image, I do not get a download image option. I can download the thumbnail no problem, but not the large image. Is there a way to enable the large images to be downloadable? Cheers,
The only Gallery that works for right-click download is the CLASSIC gallery. With the Classic Gallery you can also use the following technique display full size images to download. Someone else posted this solution but I cant remember who to give them credit. Classic is the only HTML gallery.
Step 1) Open Lightroom and select an HTML web gallery. Step 2) Paste the following code into the HTML web gallery's IMAGE INFO / CAPTION / CUSTOM TEXT field (This will dynamically add a link named "Link to High Resolution" to every webpage):
Step 3) Export or Upload your new gallery to your web server. Step 4) Create a new sub directory in your gallery named: \images\highres\ Step 5) Upload your high resolution images into the new subdirectory. The dynamic URL that is created is based on the filename of the low resolution image so make sure they have exactly the same name.
When the user clicks the HighResolution link, their browser will display the high res image. Depending on the size, it can take several seconds to download. After that, they can right click to download the file to their computer.
