    Default Disabling Save As options

    Hope this question makes since, I would like to know if there is something
    you can do in NOF10 so that when your site is published and live that
    visitors can not click and save your pictures off your site. If anyone knows
    of how this can be done and could post it in simple steps (I'm not too much
    of a techie. lol) I would truly appreciate it.
    Kind Regards,
    Gail

    Gail,

    Put really ugly pictures no one would want on your site?

    Seriously... there is no foolproof way of doing this. You can hinder but not
    stop image grabbing.

    Watermarking is a solution that many use to make stealing images less useful
    to the person doing the image grabbing.

    LOL Don't think I would get any business if my pics were any uglier than
    they already are.

    Is the hindering easy? I'm still interested.
    I thought I had found an answer below but it wasn't what I was looking for.
    Sincerely,
    Gail

    Guess the watermarking thing is what I did do. Thanks.

    I did read about a technique where the image is displayed by making it
    the background of a table cell. A transparent GIF of the same size is
    then placed into the cell. When the user tries to download the picture
    that they can see, all they get is the transparent GIF.

    It really doesn't matter.

    If a user can view the photo in their browser - THEY ALREADY HAVE IT.

    It is on their computer, sitting in the cache folder and any first grader
    (and some adults<g>) can simply view that folder in thumbnail view and
    easily drag/drop or copy it to another location.


    The ONLY safe method to protect individual digital assets (I am not talking
    about Flash photo galleries here) is to use low resolution images (or small
    enough file sizes as to prevent them from being useful) or to watermark
    them.

    Anything else is just a waste of time.


    HTH,

    Charles
