    Prevent Image Stealing on webpage?

    Is there a way to 100% prevent image stealing in web browsers??? Having the server render the image? Some secret scripting?

    Not if it is a .gif or .jpg image. These are downloaded and cached and can be saved to disk. Possibly you could prevent saving of a Flash file or other plug-in-based media.

    This appears to work in IE but not NS :
    <pre><script language="javascript">

    function noRightClick() {
    if (event.button==2) {
    alert('Right-Click is Disabled on this page.')
    }
    }
    document.onmousedown=noRightClick

    </script>
    </pre>

    But: The pic will still be in the cache.
    AND
    That script is easy to bypass. (I'm not gonna tell you how, though <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    If it displays on my screen, I can steal it if I think it is sufficiently worth writing the code to do so.

    If I can see it, it's mine. there's always 'print screen'... <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15>

    The best way to prevent an image from being stolen is to not put it on the web... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
