The settings I had chosen for my Public folder might allow anyone to upload/download/delete files from that folder ! ! ! I have changed it now to password-protected. I do not have my photos stored there.
You guys might want to review the Public Folder use in the above link. Several people here have some protection on their public sites, some have none, some are Passworded.
If someone posts a picture from their un-pasworded Public folder and you choose to view picture in another window, in that url you can remove "picturename.jpg" from the url, and then reload the window and you will see all the files in that persons Public folder. Then it is possible to have your way while in there -- DEPENDING on the level of security chosen by the owner of that site.
My photo above is of mobile me in my System Prefs panel.
Yes, someone can see all of your files, but as long as you don't have Allow visitors to make changes checked they can't do anything but download the files. It is called a Public folder so you prorbably wouldn't want to put any nekkid stuff in there or anything.

Hope I wasn't speaking Russian again.
Thanks for emphasizing "Allow visitors to make changes checked" because I know I had that for my son-in-law and his brother cause they were working on a certain file together.
As someone else pointed out, folks with businesses using Public to view graphic or text files might not want them read by just any doofer who drops by, forum graphics might go someplace else.
Maybe you should explain things to me in Pig Latin. I'm fluent.
ImageWell, Comcast and me are doing such a fun job I'm not going back to uploading pictures from iDisk or macme, etc. Besides, I think I screwed up that capability mucking around with all the settings in IW yesterday. [sigh][ I make things so difficult for myself. ]

I copied all of my pictures into Web/Sites/Pictures. Actually, iDisk moved them all there rather than copying them, so now I don't have duplicates, and my original Pictures folder is empty. Now, I just have to replace the homepage.mac.com/etc with the web.me.com/etc path in my little, easily confused brain.
Where do you do the uploading on Comcast, Kate? I don't see it!
Al, Al, Al, did you just open up a Pandora's box for me!
Comcast is very secretive about telling people they have storage space and how to get a "place holder html" page I guess. Anyway I got one back when we were still in MacCentral. How do I know that? Well, on the place holder I typed a few word just for giggles and grins. Here it is. Did you ever see anything so exciting? Don't look at that nude lady in the corner . . . .
Anyway, I had my mac.com web page for pictures and couldn't think of anything to do with comcast so it jast sat there. Anyway, call Comcast and see how you get a path to there and you can hide all kinds of stuff there from the world.
And because you asked me about the Comcast page I found some things by pushing wrong selection buttons. I added it to my finder next to iDisk and mounted it on my desk top. Ain't it magical.
I don't know how large the space is.
Maybe there is already an index page for you at comcast try my url but put your comcast identity in there instead.
http://home.comcast.net/~e t h e l/index2.html maybe just index.html
I have created untitled folder but it is not in a "Sites" subfolder, which I appear to have two "Sites" folders. One in the older dotmac area and one in the "Web" area at bottom of picture where my iDisk Gallery photos and iWeb webpages created reside.
I cannot move or change the name of untitled folder I created and moved all my pictures into.
I think I need to create a new folder sub to . . . web/sites/new folder.
Yeppers! I put it where MacBozo said. Moved all the photos from untitled into properly named Photos folder: iDisk > Web > Sites > Photos. Think I have it sorted out now. Think is I am still going to not use it. I'll stick with Comcast storage as it all works okay.
