How many of you, with websites, disable the ability for people to right click and save your images on their own computer? The reason I ask is because I recently, finally, got my own new website up and running. I am very much a beginner at this, and I have no HTML skills at all. The site that I made is hosted by www.freewebs.com and they have a very easy to use website builder that works quite well. But, the only drawback for me so far is the fact that I don't like their photo albums. While you can dis-able the ability for anyone to right click on your images, the album interface itself is quite bulky and the thumbnail images are very large and slow to load.

Currently, I don't have my photos in an album. I made my own thumbnails which link to the full size photo. I like the fact that I much more control on how my thumbnails and photos are presented, but I don't have the option to stop any right clicking.

So again, do any of you bother disabling the right clicking ability?

Thanks,

Dan

Yep... see //www.photographyvoice.com/pv/potd to see...

I can give you some simple HTML if you like.

Search the threads on this oft-beaten deceased horse.
Very passionate opinions for and against.

My opinion is sure, it won't stop someone if they really want to save your pic but it is enough of a deterrent to sway the occasional casual offender.

It's really easy to get around (preferences/disable javascript) in your browser and then right click saving will work again.

Basically its mostly annoying and doesn't actually stop anything, so probably isn't worth the effort to implement.

Drag the image to the address bar, hit enter, then it gives you the large version .jpg and you can right click and save from there. Thats how I steal all of the photos from the internet that I pass off as my own...I MEAN I MEAN I MEAN>

That's too many steps. Just drag it straight into Photoshop.

Try it in IE7.
This Firefox "trick" isn't that well known to the people that the rt click suppression is targeted at anyways.

LOL I never knew that you could drag an image to the address bar and save it from there. OK then, never mind my question :) I just won't worry about right clickers. Instead, I will upload slightly smaller images so that even if they do take them, they won't be suitable for a decent sized print.

Thanks

or 'Ctrl-I' or open 'Page Info' and then just save the media tags. No need to disable right clicking then.

Or run a cache browser and pick it out of there.

The same thing can be used in Explorer.

No. It's utterly pointless and annoying to end users.

If you're worried about images being stolen, put low-res versions up.

Im on IE 6, and its clearly working but it also looks that it doesnt work on every image?
08/22/2007 03:48:53 PM · #15
One option is to set all your photographs as a background image with a transparent image on top. When they right click the image they will only get the transparent image.

Now this will not stop them from doing a screen print but will get you around the right click.

I wouldn't do it ... but well, it's not my site. :-)

FWIW, copyright registering your photos and waiting for them to be stolen is more profitable than making your website appear amateurish ;-)

Despite having access to a "disable-right-click" script, I have never done this on my own website - for the same reasons as stated, i.e. it's pointless, doesn't actually stop anyone from copying the photos, and is annoying. I, and at least half the people who view my website, could defeat any protection scheme put on, usually in a matter of seconds.

Don't drag it to the address bar, drag it to the command bar. Works fine.

you know a person could always push the printscreen button and copy the photo that way, i would do a small watermark if you really want to be cautiouse*** cant spell sry later

Yes, yes, we know it doesn't protect, but it may help some small degree.

Still right clickable. Whatever warning is there is hidden by the right click menu so I'm not sure what it says.

- You have Options->Content->Advanced->Disable or Replace Context Menus unchecked.
- Alternately, disable JavaScript.
- Alternately, take a screen shot...

The list goes on, I know.

I just clicked 'save as'

Was there some protection there ?

The argument cannot be won because those opposed to the possibilty that any safeguards would be a deterrent simply has to point out a way to get around it.
An "I'm so smart look how I can beat that" mentality.

The smugness is really annoying.

Is it really smugness to point out that locking the door while leaving the windows open is pointless?
