Hello,

I have created a collection and shared a link to that collection via Lightroom CC. Is there a way to prevent people from right-clicking then downloading images from that collection while viewing that collection in a browser?

Thank you.

Hi,

You can determine download settings for Albums at Photo Editor | Online Photoshop Lightroom

However, I don’t think you can stop someone right clicking on the image in the browser, although I guess this would be low res.

Yes you can enable or disable right clicking on an image to download it. However that in and of itself will not prevent someone from screen shotting an image.

Select the collections gear icon and go to the share tab. Uncheck Allow downloads

Thank you both.  When logging into lightroom.adobe.com, I can see that the Allow downloads checkbox is not selected. Looking through a different browser and making sure I was not signed in, I can still right click on an image and download it.

Two questions:

1. Is there some other setting that I am missing

2. Should there be a way to prevent downloads from Lightroom CC rather than going to lightroom.adobe.com and selecting the gear icon?

Thank you.

Hi Michael,

There are no other settings you are missing. If you right click I guess it’s just like doing the same on any web page image.

The only other option would be to Watermark them if you are concerned, either from Classic or Mobile (but don’t think that Shared Links honour Watermarks).
