SmugMug offers an array of customizable tools, with which you can restrict people from downloading SmugMug photos. Customizing these settings is entirely in your hands, so you know exactly where your photos are going.
Here the settings that you can change in order to stop your photos from unauthorized downloads.
1. Set up privacy settings: You can protect galleries with viewing passwords or keep them unlisted.
2. Apply Right-Click protection: Whenever someone right-clicks on your photos in your SmugMug gallery, they see a message (customizable) that says that these picture are copyrighted by their respective owners. With this setting enabled, no one can right-click and save your photos.
3. Watermarking: Watermarking your photos in your SmugMug gallery is another good option to protect your photos. SmugMug's watermarks are applied to display copies only and not the original files. So, when someone downloads your photo, your watermark (name/ URL/Logo) goes with it.
You can now install PicBackMan's SmugMug uploader for Mac from the website and start backing up photos and videos.
