    You could disable right click with Javascript and encode your HTML, but somebody can almost always get the JPG if they try.

    If this is for a template sale, just paste "SAMPLE" over it so it cannot be 'ripped.'

    I didn't even have to View Source to get around that one.

    You can't disable print screen, and can't disable copying of that jpeg. You can hovewer block dummies from ripping image by putting transparent image over your image so when user right-clicks on image and saves it he would save transparent image instead of your jpeg.

    Interesting idea. Obviously not totally effective, but that's the best option I've seen (without watermarking).

    Do you have example code or a script for that?

    Does it just use layers?

    simple solution is to use table. here is example:

    <table width="400" height="300" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" background="my_image.jpg"><tr><td><img src="spacer.gif" width="400" height="300" border="0" alt="My Image" /></td></tr></table>

    LOL, it's so simple! I should've thought of that. Great idea, I'll try it out.

    Thanks,

    Sure they can view the source (unless you encrypt that too) but that's not the point, at least for me. For the average user, the transparent image will confuse the hell out of them and possibly make it not worth their time.

    There is software that will disable print screen, as well as view source and print page. Of course, this relies on javascript.

    The best in my opinion is one which splits your image into 100 smaller images and gives them all random names, so if some one does want to steal the image, they will have to download each piece, then find them and put them all back together by hand.

    One of them is called HTML Guardian, the other I forget the name.

    simple, if you don't want anyone to take the image don't put it up on the net

    there is NO way you can truly stop someone from taking an image if they want it.

    trouble with JavaScript solutions is that some people have JS disabled and other codes don't work in all browsers, if you really want to copyright your image just watermark it

    At the end of the day, if they can 'see' it on their monitor, there will always be a way to steal that image. There's really not much you can do about it.

    Visual watermarking, is probably the best way to go, if it's sample/example work.

    You can also slice the images, like mentioned above, using Fireworks. It has a great batch processing function and writes the HTML to put the pieces back together on the page to make the image.

    Watermark it, if it's really that important to you.

    Don't use one of those crappy javascript right click things. Take control of my browser away from me? I never come back to your site.

    Don't slice it up unnecessarily into x number of pieces. x HTTP requests instead of 1 for an image means it will load slower.

    Wanna make certain your image isn't nicked? Keep it offline.
