Can't be done. If they can view them they can copy them and save them. After
all just by viewing them there's a copy saved in their temp internet files.

Like Shelock said, it can't be done, but there are a couple of things you
can do that will stop a novice...

first of all there is this...

<img src="images/mypic.gif" galleryimg="no">

this will stop the little save panel and original size button from
appearing.

next up, do a search for html java no right click. There's a lot of code to
stop someone from right-clicking and then selecting save from the context
menu.

Hope this helps

Andy

Password protect the section of the website and only give the password to
people for whom you could care less whether they save the pictures or not.
Otherwise - don't put pictures up on the web page or only put quality
reduced images that you do not care about.

There is one way, and one way only: take them off the Web site.

Seriously, the only way anyone can view anything in a browser is for
the browser first to download it. It requires very minimal savvy to
extract things from the browser's cache.

Not in my experience.
