  • How do I prevent people looking at my blog from right clicking on their mouse and being able to save or print the image they are seeing?

    a savvy user can get around anything you use, however

    Basically, if you can see it in the web browser, then you can save or print it without much effort, even if right-clicks are disabled. As Samuel mentioned, this is only going to stop the less technically inclinded user.

    All you can really do is either put a watermark or logo in the image to make it less desirable to copy/print or only show a low resolution version of the image that the public can see.

    You might want to enable hot-link protection at your webhost to prevent people from showing your images directly on their website.

    Guess it’s like having a car alarm or house alarm. Those that really want in and have the skills, still will.
