Does anyone know how to set it so viewers can not right click on an image and copy it? The last theme I used, specifically designed for photographers, had this built into it. I liked that, but prefer this Ata theme for many other reasons.

This is done by adding a java script to the page. If you google 'wordpress disable right click on image' you will find lots of references

However, you may want to read http://www.webpagemistakes.ca/disable-right-click/ so see an argument on why not to do it.

I haven't tested it but NexGen Gallery let's you add a watermark to images on a per gallery basis. You can use plain text or an image for the watermark.

juggledad...thanks for the link it was very interesting. I know disabling the right click does not prevent others who are determined to steal images. But it does deter most.

After reading that link I think I have more work to do!! Do you think turning off 'view / source' is ok?

Also, I have NextGen gallery but have not gotten far enough to use it yet.

Nevermind the 'view / source' question above...seems what I am reading is it only deters also.

Just in case you still want to investigate prohibiting right clicking I saw this in the new plugins area. Blog Protector

Hi all,

I found this thread in searching for a possible solution to this problem and here are offered some ways to solve this.

I like placing the photo as background the most, as explained here. The reason is that I don't like watermarking and the javascript option will only filter out the users, who don't know how to turn off their javascript. But placing the image as background is so nice, because even the Opera users (tools -> advanced -> blocked content) can't block the image from showing (that's good if you have commercial banners, which you want to always show).

So thats the option I favor, and only small percent of the user know how to get the image from the browser cache. If you find any other ways, please share.
