I have a colleague that has a website capable of clients directly downloading images from his site. He's able to upload them at a specific resolution and hos clients can choose to download a small, medium and high resolution version by choosing a drop down.
I'd be keen to see the developers add this function going forward. Is anybody else keen to see this?
I think this is a good suggestion and it will also help a lot of users who wish to sell their images online. I will pass this suggestion to our dev team, I think they will consider it and hopefully include it in the future updates.
For now, you can do a little workaround if you wish for your visitors to download the images on your website. You can upload your images to a file hosting services like Dropbox or Google Drive and then you can place the links to download the images on your site. Or you can create a product page and after a customer purchased a product, you can send them the download link for the image that they purchased via email.
I hope this helps, enjoy your day Mick!

A fantastic idea and possibly the best solution for those selling downloadable products. The one thing to ensure however is that only the "delivery page" has right-click enabled otherwise every picture can be downloaded for nothing.
We would be happy to bring our second business site (www.fotodescargas.es) here if someday our clients have the chance to pay and download the pictures directly from the gallery.
Please rest assured that all of our users suggestions and feedbacks are being reviewed by our dev team and will take it in consideration. As a matter of fact, a newer version of Portfoliobox will come out soon. I cannot promise anything for now, I can only say that the overall tools of Portfoliobox will be greatly improved.
Have a good day Jorge! Hope to see you in the new version!

Has this been added as a feature? If so, how does one access this? I thought I read in Portfoliobox4 that this was a feature. It would be super helpful to me if it were. Thank you! /Darlene.
Thank posting! I'm sorry, but direct download is still not possible but we have a new feature and it is called "Client Gallery" in the new version of Portfoliobox. This is like a private gallery that you can send to your clients and they can select or order an image inside this gallery. Then once you know what they want, you can send them the original file. For more information about this feature, you can check out our article at https://www.portfoliobox.net/news/how-a-client-gallery-can-enhance-your-online-portfolio
I hope this helps! Have a great weekend!
