Mods, I'm sorry if you don't like this. But this is an increasing problem for many people who want to publish their artwork, photography, and other pictures online.

What is a reliable image hosting site that protects your uploaded images? By protected, I mean not allowing anyone to right click and access either the 'save' function or 'save as' function.

Some people find that it is too much trouble to worry about these things. There was a man in (I think) New York. He posted up his artwork (it was beautiful, I saw it) to a image hosting site that didn't protect the images. A man in China took the images and published them in book format. He made hundreds of dollars off this guy's work. He never went to jail or paid a fine or anything.

Sorry, I can't help you.
Even if you did find a way to disable the right-click, your work could still get copied.
People could just do the screen capture and there's a Firefox extension and some programs that can still do the right-click.
If you look up image hosting on wikipedia, it'll give you a list of sites.
You could try those out, but you'd probably have to pay to get the feature you want.
If you have Photoshop or uMark Lite, you can watermark your work to prevent it getting stolen.

I kinda bumped to those situations lately.
While I was out here in the internet, hunting some anime pics, I kinda got in trouble with a picture.
Every time I use the Right-Click, the option 'Save as' never comes out. It's kinda annoying, so I did some "references" and made me got my desired picture.
So yeah, I think I can help. I'll go on a research and try to look for a way.

ADDED:
Do you know how to use HTML? if you know some things about Web Page Editing then this'll be easy. But I warn you; Even if this helps, there are still ways on how to get the copyrighted picture.
Haha. I know how ;)

some suggestions from other users:

if you just want to "disable" the right mouse click menu to make it slightly more difficult to save a copy of a picture, how about displaying the picture as the background to a table/cell/frame?





If you want longer/fancier descriptions to appear when you mouseover you could also use CSS.

The best option is not to give away something useful in the first place. Make sure that your copyright info is in the image, I prefer placing it in the frame area personally. Also make sure that you don't give away a useable resolution image - 640x480 is only really useful for web use, but 4000x3000 is eminently suitable for print, so stick with the low range...


or use CSS. I think you already know what this is.

Using the CSS would take time because it's pretty much hard work.
Just study the basics of HTML and you'll be disable the Right-Click option on your Website ;)

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Hm. Watermarks wont really help. My only suggestion to you is to save it as low resolution. (72 dpi)

Please use the help thread for this kind of topic

I believe there is a site where they prevent user from downloading any picture. The only thing they can do is watch the pictures.

If you post something on the internet, it can be stolen by anyone with half a brain if they wanted to.

If you disable the Right click > Save Picture As function, people can simply use the Print Screen (Prt Scr) button and copy it that way. The only way to protect your work would to be to host it with a Watermark on it, showing that it's yours.

I'll leave this open and rename the thread so it applies to more people.

Oh right *slaps himself* Silly me. Was thinking of a *incident* where I couldn't click on 'Save Image' and used the copy method instead : p

You can use DeviantArt .
Let`s steal edsamac`s for example .



Some images can`t be saved with right-clicking , it has to be printscreened .

Scribbles : Oh , it`s watermarking . Well , there you go .
