Can I have password-protection for some galleries and not others? Which plans include password protected galleries?
Zenfolio knows how important your images are to you and how important privacy is for your clients.

All plans include the ability to make any gallery or photo password-protected, private, or limited access, as well as the ability to hide galleries from public view.
 
Do my images have right-click protection?
Zenfolio users have the advantage of a custom right-click option on all of their photos. The standard browser right click options are automatically replaced with Buy, Share this Photo, Dim the Lights and Download Original (only if you enable this feature). This means the ability to right-click and save your image is not a function any visitor of your site can use, unless you choose to allow the downloading of your images.
 
Can I watermark my images?
The Pro and Advanced plans feature the ability to watermark your photos after they are uploaded to Zenfolio. This can be done in a batch action and you can either upload your own watermark or use one of our standard versions. If you use our tool to create watermarks for your images, the watermarks will be automatically removed prior to printing.
 
Can I design my site privately before it goes live?
Once you have signed up for a trial account, your site is live and can be found using your new URL. If you would like to be able to customize your site and make sure the galleries work before allowing people to see it, you can hide groups, galleries or collections from your viewers with our Hide from Visitor setting. Alternatively, you can set your galleries to "Private" so that they can only be seen by you, the owner. 
 
Keep in mind, that we aren't publicly announcing your site and it can take search engines time to find you. If you aren't handing out your site URL, you have a fair amount of privacy while you are customizing your site. If you want to make sure that Google doesn't index your images, you can also hide your galleries from public searches in Access Control. Please see this link for many more details on security and access control.
 
Can people download my photos?
By default, downloading is disabled. However, you can choose to allow downloading of copies of original full resolution images by adjusting the Access Control settings in your Toolbox. The option is also provided to allow the free downloading of lower resolution version of the images.
 
Can people share my photos?
You can enable or disable sharing of your photos by adjusting the Page Options in Customize Website View, as well as enable or disable specific social media buttons.
