Image Protection Questions
1. If the .htaccess are created properly, do we even need to mess with watermark.php hiding the image location? I mean if htaccess prevents hotlinking, do you still need watermark.php to hide the location? Does using watermark.php use more server resources than not using it?
2. I have a pretty fresh installed of 5.13 and am trying to setup my image protection. I want to allow my thumbnails to be hotlinkable to all sites, but my medium and fullsize images to not be hotlinkable on other sites. Can you give me examples of what the "data .htaccess" and the "fullsized .htaccess" and will I need to edit the "Storage Options" at all to make it so my gallery allows this?
I thought .htaccess was the all in one prevention of image stealing/hotlinking, is this not true?
