Hi Res Image Access

After reading and commenting on this topic ,
can someone confirm how easy it is to access and copy high res images from foliopic websites, that have been uploaded for digital download?

Whilst the digital download is a nice feature, it does seem flawed, if these files can be taken without payment, by simply disabling javascript, and right click/save-as.

I can get round the right-click override but I only see your small version, I can't see the large version. Only your small version (which is watermarked) can be pinched in this way.


There's another possible way but I don't want to say anything about it here for obvious reasons and it's not something most people would know to try. I'll pm you about it.

Hi Chris,
neither of my websites(photium or foliopic) have large images uploaded.
My concern was that if I were to upload full res jpg's(as a download customer product), they would be accessible also.

No, they would be hidden.

Hi arhb,

At no point does foliopic reference the high-resolution version of the photo on your site. The user would need to make a purchase to receive the original photo.

Thanks Keith and David, for clarifying.
