There is nothing you can do besides making them private. If the browser sees the picture the browser can store the picture. This is true for any picture on the internet with the exception of pictures embedded in some sort of flash application but still with a hi res monitor you can get a very nice quality screen shot.

You can try tagging yourself in the pictures, so you both your friends and hers can see the pictures. The best way to tackle it is by just adding the pictures on her Facebook (with privacy setting Friends of friends) and sharing it once on your wall. Hope this helps you.

Are you referring to your News Feed (Top News), News Feed (Most Recent), or the Recent Activity on your profile? I think that News Feed (Top News) only displays what Facebook considers to be most interesting to you, so I wouldn't expect your own likes/comments there. The News Feed setting that you mentioned applies to the Most Recent setting. News Feed ...

The only reason that services which allow sharing option (TwitPic, imgur and even Dropbox) force you to share rights on your content is to allow the service to do its job, namely: publish this content. Dropbox, for instance, had an incident when they changed the TOS: there was a big discussion, and Dropbox guys had to explain why they did that. Here the ...

www.dropbox.com! It can't be easier, no need to mess around with proprietary photo albums. It can be installed with a few clicks (same for registration), is cross-plattform (Windows, Mac, Linux) and after all it's just a folder on your file system that is kept in sync with an online folder. Of course that folder can be shared with others...

Once you posted it, you can’t add a new photo to a status update. The only moment when you can add more photos to a status update is between the time one or more photos are uploaded and the one you click Post (see picture below). The only thing you can do is to delete the first pictures and re-upload them together with the fourth. (FYI: the photos you ...

Picasa Web is "going away" and is being replaced by Google+ Photos. (In fact, if you go to your Google+ photos and to Picasa Web, you'll see that your photos are all in "both" places.) Furthermore, I wouldn't expect to see too many more updates to the Picasa desktop application. Google doesn't want to be making desktop apps anymore.) Further, since Gmail, ...

A Google+ album can have just one sharing setting at a time. But you can choose and share only selected photos from that album, then the recipient can see only those images, not the whole album - as Google+ creates a new album for those shared photos. The rest stays private. You can also move / copy those selected photos to a new album with wider ...

Flickr handles both tasks quite well. With the caveat that "original" does not include RAW format. If you shoot raw you will have to process to JPEG (or PNG or non-animated GIF) before upload. Backup in original resolution & quality You can start with a Free account. That allows you to upload original resolution and quality, but not download it or ...

Picasa, Facebook and Flickr all offer ways to upload public photos via email. If you're looking for a simple hosting site to view photos submitted in private, simply adjust the privacy settings for each of these sites.

Ipernity uses OpenID. There are several that allow signing in with Facebook credentials (such as Photobucket). And, of course, everyone in the world has a Google account, so there is PicasaWeb.

So, since you want a free solution here's my thought on Dropbox vs the Microsoft soluiton. Dropbox gives you 2GB of storage, nice client apps for multiple platforms, plus web access to your files. You can share those files with whoever you want. A down side for me is that everything you want to syncronize has to be in a single folder... and sometimes that's ...

Picasa, Flickr, the new one min.us, all of them do that. The best one for private sharing by email, though, is Flickr.

I'm not a Flickr user but from what I've read, Flickr offers 300 MB of free storage each calendar month with storage counter reset every month, so it's not an option. If you want to stick with Picasa without paying the fee for 20GB storage, you need to resize your pictures to a resolution lower than 800x800 as pictures that size no longer count towards your ...

You can't. SkyDrive does not yet have a feature to rotate photos. PS: After I wrote the above line, I checked the official SkyDrive Help & How To. They confirm what I wrote: You currently can't rotate photos using SkyDrive. If you have the SkyDrive app installed on your computer, you can open photos in your SkyDrive folder and rotate them in a ...

According to Google Plus, pics that are automatically backed up, at a "standard" resolution (not full-size, but still quite good at 2048x2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes), are all unlimited. "You can store an unlimited number of standard size photos on Google+." and "You can upload an unlimited number of videos that are less than 15 minutes long and ...
