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. ]
