    Just got a new band up, got bored last night and spent about an hour making a background (also matched the top to the bottom so it'll repeat), if we ever got a site up, is there any way I'd be able to set it so you can't view the background image or anything so people can't download it?

    It's not too great or anything, but I quite like it, fitting for the name ;D

    Not really, dude. If you set it as a background, the background image will be visible within the CSS. If you set it as an image, the image will be visible within the code. If I wanted to, I could even take the image you just linked to now, right-click on it, and use it that way.

    If it's a real issue, you could Digimarc it, but that's not cheap:

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    Here's the thing... If you see something on the screen, its in memory or the temp Internet files on the users computer.... If you have something on your website and someone wants a copy of it, it doesn't take much effort.

    I do, and encourage clients to use a semi-transparent watermark on images they want to make sure they can claim as theirs or make a DMCA request on someone using their work...

    If you have a decent image editor... Easy enough to do, the trick is to put it where it doesn't draw attention, but is still visible if someone is looking for it...

    Also, make a copy of the original ... Burn it to DVD or CD, this will be sufficient proof of "creation date"...

    Before burning, make sure the "meta" info for the file is filled out... Most OS's these day ( win XP and above ), on images ... Give you the "blank" meta info on most files... Fill it out... Save a copy.
