    Hello Folks
    I'm building up a photo page with iWeb and I wish to discover how to hide the RSS subscription message (subscribe) and to avoid the chance of downloading my pics.
    I mean the two messages appearing in the photo presentation page.
    Thanks you all!

    There's one sure-fire way of preventing people from downloading your pics:
    Don't put them on the internet.

    In fact, that's the only way to prevent people from downloading them.

    That's absolutely true. There are ways to discourage it, and ways to make it a bit more difficult, but there is no way to prevent it.

    Look at it this way: in order for people to view your pictures from your web site it is necessary for their browsers to download the pictures. Once they've done that you can't stop them from keeping what's already on their hard drive.

    It's technically impossible to prevent downloading images.

    As another poster said, there are things that can be done to discourage it. But any image can be downloaded by simply using tools built into the browser (view resources, then directly link to the image), or more conveniently by using browser extensions.
