Forget about it far as i know, whatever you do, if i want i can get the image from your site. and printscreen thing would work only in IE. so forget about it Big Grin ...

a novice would always right click and save it...disable it..others who know how to do things will do it. atleast u'll get a majority of people not able to save your image.

if anyone else knows how to do it. please lemme also that i can find a way around cracking it Big Grin

As mathew said, no way you can stop copying images from your site.
But you can restrict it to some extend by disabling print screen or right click.

For disabling print screen using javascript just add the following line to your body tag.


For eg:
<body onload='setInterval("window.clipboardData.clearData()",50)'>

This will work in both IE and FF. But the problem is that as long as the window open you will not be able to do any copy paste operations.

This will just disable printscreen when your page is opened. But still the options like IE picture toolbar , browser cache etc are available.

You need to disable the IE picture toolbar, right click and you should not cache any of your pages.

Well, I must say that I do have to agree with Matthew Cherian here because no matter what you do there is always a way with which ones image or a picture can be downloaded so the option of health at its utmost level would be to not go for uploading personal images in the internet. If they are so personal such that you do not want anyone else to see, then mail it, to that specific person or persons!
