    Nope.

    Unless they download and repost those pics all over the internet.

    No, you unlock private pics only for those persons you select. Private photos are only viewable by everyone if you change their setting from Private to Public in the Photo Manager.

    If you just change the setting Unlock Private Photos in a member's Profile, that is the only person who can see your pics. At this moment you have 2 private photos that I cannot open.

    Here's a general rule to follow: if you shouldn't be doing it, or if there's a chance it can offer bad effect later, then, don't do it to begin with. DOH!!!

    If you've posted pictures of your pee pee, once someone right-clicks and saves them they can do whatever they wish with them. A simple JavaScript won't stop either. Worst case, a person can do a screen shot.

    You should regard anything you put on The Internet as possibly public. Once that media is released, you've given up all control of it, in every practical sense. Again, it's a common sense thing: don't do stupid stuff.

    Best to exercise prudence and behave properly when it comes to The Internet. You need to let common sense prevail.

    Ask yourself this simple question: would I pose naked for a complete stranger on the street? If the answer is no, you likely shouldn't do it in Cyber Space, either.

    You're right, it IS a stupid question. You just needed to think on it clearly.

    Thanks,boys. I got my answer after the first two responses,i'm just having trouble deleting the topic via my handheld. Thanks for your input as well,Chunky,but I didn't really need a paragraph long pontification on morality on the web.

    I count 6 paragraphs, actually. Bottom line: no matter what expectation of privacy, common sense dictates that it's not private and that once it's in "The Cloud" it's up for grabs. That's not a stretch by any means. A screen shot will get me whatever images I want.

    It gets back to behaving properly. If you wouldn't do it in Real Space, you shouldn't do it in Cyber Space.

    LOL, Sometimes during this season you'll find a scrooge! I hope it's limited to ONE! P.S. the only stupid questions are the ones not asked.

    Just to add, you can re-lock your private pics if you change your mind at a later point.
