I read your post twice and can't tell where a privacy issue exists. However the right click save as can DIE with Internet Explorer as it's Temporary Internet Cache "issue." I can't tell if you are cleaning that from time to time.
There is also an issue where people saved just the link to a photo and they thought the web site was controlling their machine. This turned out to be an issue of learning how things work. If you saved a link to the image and not the actual image then the image when removed from the web will cease to work after some time when the web page is gone.
Hi.. A while back in the Feedback Forum I posted a plea for help because Webshots, a source of neat photos had suddenly begun to prevent people from doing what I had been doing for a long time: creating theme albums by putting their pictures into MY PICTURES folder. In the past I had just enlarged each photo, then right clicked on the mousse and a box would pop up with an option "Save as..." allowing me to place the photo into my My Pictures folder.
Suddenly it stopped working and I was very distressed as I had already accumulated large groups of photos on different subjects in My Pictures and wanted to continue the practice. I went on with a call for help and someone came up with a workable solution: Enlarge the photo as before; right click and you'll get a "+" sign which you drag down to the My Pictures toolbar and then when it opens My Pictures you could just insert the photo. That worked fine...I did call the company though to complain and they said they had "solved the problem" of removing photos because of fear of legal problems if they let the photos out.
Suddenly however, after a few days the problem mysteriously went away and I was able to place in My Pictures as I originally had.
Now, as of last night, the problem is back and worse than ever. When I enlarged a photo and right clicked, no "Save As" option, no + anymore but instead a box asking me whether I wanted to Zoom In, Zoom Out, etc. I tried clicking and hitting the My Pictures bar and nothing happened. So it seemed that they have now totally prevented me from continuing to do what I wanted to do.
Can anyone there try out the process and see if they can come up with a solution? I have been using their own photo album lately but this is not solving the problem of having my own independent folder which can include the many photos I have already placed into My Pictures.
By the way, another concern is...If I do create Webshot folders by downloading their photos into their own provided folders are they able to look at these folders themselves or is my own privacy maintained? (I am not uploading them for public use..just wanting them to group pictures myself).I didn't know if these Webshot folders were really personal..or whether someone was able at their company to grab them and see what I was placing into them which violates my privacy.
I await help if at all possible!
Thanks so much!
