I think it's correct to say that any picture you display in a post here on the forum can be copied. The simplest way to stop this becoming a problem is to limit the quality and size of those pictures. Bear in mind at the recommended 500 pixel width of images posted here the final print size would be less than two inches across at 300 dpi. Another option would be to buy a digital watermark which you could then add to images posted on the web. That wouldn't stop copying but it should stop your work being stolen for profit.

If you use a flickr account, they do provide you with an option to prevent your photos from being copied in the usual way (click with mouse, save image), and it works by them placing a transparent image over yours: when someone tries to copy your image, what is copied is the transparent image they've placed on top of if.

However, because of the way modern operating systems such as Windows and Mac OS work, you can select an area of your screen and copy it to the clipboard. Thus, if it can be displayed, it can be copied.

As Bob said, the best solutions seem to be uploading only low resolution versions of your work and placing watermarks.

well when i was looking at this website and i when to do a right click it did not give me a option it just said if you would like our photos contact us at bla bla bla bla. now i was thinking that is a good thing to protect your pic but how. i heard that when postting the pic you have to put a code like this. Alt 0169 but i dont know how. if any one knows it share it with us.

All Alt+169 (numeric keypad) does is give you the © symbol when you are typing. Some sites (from memory Flash based sites may qualify) offer protection from casual copying or linking but, as luis points out, the "Print Screen" button will still capture what's on the display. If you want this sort of functionality I suggest you go back to the sites you have already visited which offer it and have a look to see what engine is running the show. If it isn't obvious then a polite email to the web master may produce results.

Question: Is this for some project of your own or are you suggesting that this should be implemented on the CameraLabs site?

I'm not really sure I appreciate being SHOUTED at in response to what I thought was a perfectly reasonable question. Anyway...

In my opinion the script you have suggested is virtually worthless. The reason I make that assertion is that it does nothing to disable the ability of the browser to show the page's source code (e.g. from Firefox select "Page Source" from the "View" menu). With access to the source code the URL of an image is pretty easy to infer.

I mentioned in a previous post that I thought there might be some Flash based solutions to this problem. In this thread Mark mentioned a product called FotoPlayer. It's not free but it seems reasonably priced and if you check their demo page here it seems to successfully disable not only the right-click technique but also the "Page Source" one as well. The keyboard's "Print Screen" button still works to allow an image to be copied to the clipboard, however. SlideShowPro, mentioned by "G", looks to be another Flash based product which helps protect your work.

Hope this helps. 8)

Bob.

There is no real point in trying to disable right click, i can print screen, paste into photoshop then crop the image i want in under 10 seconds anyway so its only going to stop the computer novice.

Watermarks on the other hand, are a different beast. I can probably remove a lot of watermarks, but depending on the complexity can take anywhere from 5 min to ... well hours to get rid of.

In any case, there are even more extreme ways to get past copy protection, for example taking a copy of the signal from the VGA port (DVI etc.) and using that if some how print screen is not able to capture the image.

So in short - there is no way to protect online content in the form of images.

No problem. We are all a community of friends who just try to help each other out. As for your link to http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex9/noright2.htm, the "Page Source" technique I described allowed me to discover
in just a few seconds. :evil:
