    Websites & Protecting Images

    for all the techys out there..

    I'm looking to protect a couple of images on a site whereby if you right click and save, it won't let you do this.

    I did it a couple years ago, but its a while since i used this function.

    any help gratefully received.

    It's not worth it cos ppl can use other ways to save the image anyway xx

    such as? ... its a local swimming club site Im doing, and its basically to stop the parents saving the photos onto the PC. we charge them £1 per copy which pays towards future prints etc.

    will try.. the site isnt going live til November so time to play with it... cheers

    just put a watermark on them. that way they can still download, but theyve got a load of text on the top of it which they cant get rid of without making a mess of the original image providing you save them as .jpgs

    Print screen ?.

    I imagine that the right click function could be replaced with some copyright message box.

    However, I'm not sure if that will protect it sufficiently if someone uses the file save as from the browser menu and it downloads the page and images automatically? :?

    I know some sites put water marks on their images to protect them regardless....

    Print Screen.. Ctrl controls etc?

    I'd add the watermark if I were you.

    Also you can't take piccies of minors and add them to any site without the parents express permission anyway x

    i would go down the watermark route, far too easy to copy a picture thats right click protected http://i33.tinypic.com/2i7l06v.jpg

    such as? - care to explain how

    There are plenty of bits of software than can download the image with ease. Water marking the photo is the ONLY anser. Or just make it very low res so that anything about small becomes undesirable.

    Theres a couple of people on here that make webpages for a living. They'd help but i'm pretty certain they'd charge. Can PM you though if you'd like details :thumbsup:
