If you put it up, and I can see it on my browser, I can save it and use it elsewhere. Everything I've seen involves watermarking or otherwise setting up images so that, if you find an image pirated from your site, you can prosecute. As if that wouldbe cost-effective. If you are trying to sell your images, I'd suggest putting some kind of pattern over the image on the website, and not giving the unaltered image to anyone until they've paid for it.

I like the second answer. However--if I load the page, the graphic image is still on my PC. The file is in my "Temporary..." folder. You haven't stopped the determined pirate.

This will protect your images in both IE and Netscape 3+ browsers. This script can be found at http://www.javascripts.com

The determined ones no, the casual image takers yes. You can use both the script and the copyright/w name for protection or just put all the images you don't want swiped in a protected folder and only let those you want to see them have access. Otherwise as you said if they want it they will get it.

I think ith answer 1 part 2 you have the best solution. You cripple the images with somekind of a pattern that makes them usless for reuse. Whenever the image comes along in a nice manner I can use any screen scraper to get a copy of the image.

There is no sure fire way of prtecting your images. The suggestions already made are about all you can do. I do know that you can stop the files from caching to the temp folder but I do not know the code to this.
Even so the determined ones will get your images.
have your thought about thumbnailing them and if the viewer wishes to see the full version they need to know a password(Of course at a cost). I usally find that most sites do this.
