Help Disable 'download Original Photo'

    This is rather an urgent issue, how can I disable 'download' original photo, or adjust the permissions correctly?
    I have members, who are able to download other members' photos.

    Even though the privacy is set to 'only me' - we can still download photos.
    How can I disable this completely?
    Or is there a usergroup permission that I haven't seen which prevents this?
    It's quite urgent and I appreciate all and any help.

    Many thanks :)

    You still can see the download because:
    - You are the owner of the album.
    - You are administrators/moderators with view any content permission enabled.

    There is no permission to prevent downloading since it is album's individual privacy.

    If you do not want to store original photos, you might want to enable the option "Disable original photo concept" in Options. But please take note that, some features rely on original photos will not work if you disabled it.

    Okay so is it a bug then?
    Because it is disabled in the options, but users can download the images?

    Users still can download the images which are displaying on the screen not the original images. If you want to remove this link as well then you can edit the template to remove them. There are 2 templates:
    - sonnb_xengallery_photo_view
    - sonnb_xengallery_photo_view_overlay.
