There are ways to deter people, such as using JavaScript to disable right clicking on an image (so someone can't right click and go down to "save image as...") But that doesn't stop someone from dragging their mouse over the image so it is highlighted and then clicking on "edit" and "copy" and then pasting it somewhere else (MS Word for example) - you can disable the menu bar but there are always the key commands CTRL C and CTRL V to copy and paste. If you were to block those out someone could still use the "print Screen" button to take a screen capture that they could paste somewhere else. If you could block that out then you still have to find a way to stop them from digging through the temporary internet folder to see if the images have been cached. This is something we've dealt with and so far haven't found a way to completely keep someone from downloading/saving images... Probably wasn't the answer you were looking for but I hope it helps.There are ways to deter people, such as using JavaScript to disable right clicking on an image (so someone can't right click and go down to "save image as...")
