I would like to protect pictures from being casually copied by disabling the save image / copy image on the Right Mouse Button pop up. I have seen this on photo web sites and would like to implement it. I know that it only protects the image from the casual lifter, as images can usually be mined from the browser cache.

Also, it would be nice, as I have seen elsewhere, to show a message in the RMB popup, something to the effect of this image is copyrighted, please don’t copy.

I have heard, but not seen, that some sites just disable the RMB pop up over images.

So, … is this done site wide, or is it done on a picture by picture bases. Also, how and where is it done. What is the code and where does it go?

thanks

There is a plugin that uses some javascript to disable the right click menu on images. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/blog-protector/
This isn’t foolproof, users can just disable javascript, but for your causal user it should stop them.
