When I discovered anyone viewing my photos can download them, including the originals, I closed my account quickly! There are apparently some tricks to discouraging this but it is just too cumbersome and may or may not work. I have no idea why Flickr doesn't consider this a priority. SmugMug can do it, stock photo sites can do it; Flickr should be able to do it, too. Since they can't or won't, adios! And for those who say if it is on the Web, one should expect it to be downloaded: I'm not talking about low-quality JPG thumbnails, I'm talking about originals.

In summary, I would not recommend Flickr to a friend.
