    Does anyone know of a plugin or hack to prevent people from right-clicking and saving photos on the blog? Something that works in all web browsers?

    Nothing like that is particularly effective. Disabling right-click is annoying to end-users, and easily bypassable. Your best bet would be watermarking (Think there are watermark plugins) or to upload non-prinatable sized images.

    Bypassable how?

    The issue I have is that these photos are uploaded from my Flickr. They are only 500px wide which limits their quality to some extent. I’m okay with some amount of “bypassable” as most people won’t go to many lengths to do so. I’m just looking for something to reaffirm that anti-plagiarism message. 🙂

    No matter what you do, people can still hit the print screen button. Reducing the image quality and/or watermarking is the only way to mitigate the effects of plagiarism.

    Exactly. Print screen still works, which is one key press. Many browsers allow the user to disable scripts that might affect the right-mouse button, so for those browsers it wouldn’t work at all.

    If you want to reaffirm your message, just put a copyright tag on your image.
