Right Click and Copy - Images
 
Is there a way to disable the "right Click and Copy" function for photos posted in Photopost on inserted as part of a post?

Not really.

The nature of the web is that anything on a webpage can be saved. There are some ways to make this mildly difficult, or confusing the less tech-savvy, but in the end it's all there for the taking.

Use a watermark...
 
SteveA, I would do what Bill Hemmel does with his wonderful aviation photos...put a watermark over the picture so as to make the picture not easily copied without your express permission.

Heck of a note, but that would be the only way I can think of making it not copyable on a public forum. If someone wants a clean picture, then they can contact you and you can email them a clean copy for their use with your permission.

Good luck...love your pictures...hate someone using them without permission.

Steve, wonderful photos.

In addition to the excellent suggestion you just received, I would not post full resolution photos. Photos can look good on the web in lower resolution, but when printed, they will look grainy.

Thanks for sharing!

Great comments everyone.. Thank you
 
Thanks for the responses!

Yes I will "almost" always send pictures to folks that ask and the image seems to have a special "Winni" memory for someone.

I only ask because I posted a picture here that ended up with someone elses name on it on another site. (Not a site that has anything to do with Winni or even New Hampshire)

Not really a big deal. If I ever got to the point that I was trying to sell pictures, which I have no plans to do, I suppose I could watermark them somehow.

I did see a few decent ideas here. Most are over my head technically. The shrink wrap process is what looks the simplest to use.
