In order to do this, please follow our instructions on how to install and activate addons.

Your first step is to create a new gallery or edit an existing one. You can follow along with our documentation for creating your first gallery.

Next, navigate to the Misc tab and click the Enable Image Protection? to turn on the image protection.

Enable the image protection on the Misc tab
