When we first started the galleries 8 years ago, we used to prevent downloading of photos. We had to disable this feature a few years back as it was affecting some of the other links on the gallery pages. In the past 2 weeks, as a test, we have reimplemented this feature on the Britain and Ireland Stop Press and more recently on the Scarce gallery making it difficult/impossible for most users to download photos.
We've had a few emails (some photographers) already asking to disable this. We'd like to get a poll from our readers as to what you'd want. What do you think? Good thing or bad?
Thanks for the feedback!
