A reality in this digital age. The only was to stop these photos is to avoid any gathering at which they might be taken.

Your reaction still seems a little over the top...

I have former friends and cousins who have habits of downloading my photos and again, I'm not comfortable with that but I'm clueless on how to let them know without sounding weird to them or offend them because they are proud that they are with me that they post them publicly and they may think that I'm not.

Please help me construct the right words to say. Thank you!
Tell them the truth like what said in the bolded and I'm betting they will no longer post pictures of you or at least change the settings to friends only.
