    You can't

    You can try embedding the images as java applets or using some other trickery, but anyone who REALLY wants one of your images can simply take a screen capture and save that.

    I would embed watermarks in all images if I were you...

    Ekstreme's right. If you want people to be able to view your images, you have to send them to their computer. Once the image is on their computer, they can do what they want with it. If you embed the image in an applet or in Flash, a simple screen capture would defeat all that work.

    Also, r/click banners if you ask me are annoying as hell. You can do more with right lcik than just copy. CTRL-C or overloading the system will disable it like that.

    Flash or Java I wouldn't recommend if it isn't neccesary. Like with me by the default java is disables. I can enable it if I want but if I don't have alot of time i'm gone.

    Thats just me...

    what about having to unplug the key board before veiwing the image? It must be possible with javascript.

    Even if you had all sorts of trickery, the browser would still have to load the image, hence it will be present on the visitor's computer...

    ...and if they were *really* cunning, they could always just open a socket to port 80 on your webserver and access the image directly !

    Might as well ask for 3 forms of identification before admitting them to your website. irate:

    Watermark your images, if at all appropriate or possible.

    Forcing them to unplug there keyboards? Than your site must be worth gold, because I wouldn't unplug my keyboard else. What would happen if it has a harmful macro on it. And also Most firewalls and even antivirusses would disable that.
