Offer various images in the shopping cart for sale

Due to Corona, I now have to offer pictures on the Internet. Actually, do not like doing that, because the images are constantly being downloaded without payment.
The pictures should, if possible, be integrated into my existing galleries.

A few questions or need a few tips on what is feasible:

1. Can I block the download for these images?

2. Can I give these pictures an extra price?

PS: Watermark, I'll definitely go in there.

1. Never upload hi-res images in a public album!

2. Always use watermark for the down-scaled images (See Settings / Effects)

3. Include a clear legal statement, that the images are copyright protected and you'll take legal steps against any IP violation.

4a. Upload the sold images in an FTP server and send them the username/password. This requires an FTP application to download, but provides better security.

4b. Upload the sold images ZIP-ed to the site's hidden folder (per purchase) - e.g. /public_html/downloads/weoriuweoiusdjkcnvkwejh - and password-protect the folder. You can then send the link to the ZIP file along with the password.

Thank you for your prompt reply.
So it would make more sense to create your own gallery for the pictures?

1. Never upload hi-res images in a public album!
How high should the resolution then be set in Photoblogger?


Just created a gallery. Think it should fit like this?

What else could be done?

Just use the default. That's optimized for screen size. Apply watermark on them. The high resolution means at least 3Mpx (e.g. 2000x1500) at least, but usually photographers sell the original size, ~16-24 Mpx. This is what you never want to expose on a public website.
