Topic: How to set gallery.xml be private which can't be accessed by outside

Hi,

I don't wanna people download the picture from" images folder" by getting the path form gallery.xml.

is there possible to encrypt  the gallery.xml or change the file permission?

I have try to set the permission of images folder to be inaccessible (751).

It is proved that people from outside cannot access the folder. However, if they know the picture path from gallery, they still can steal the pic by enter the path.

Please kindly help !!

For the most part if you put your image up on a server one way or another if someone wants to take them there is nothing you can do about it. You can try somethings to make it harder, but here is no infallible way to prevent image theft other then not posting your images to the net. That being said you can try building a server side script that generates the xml on the fly and or you could purchase the Pro version and embed the gallery in another swf that passes the gallery.xml path the SimpleViewer, these methods will help obscure the image paths.
