Hi

If you were wanting to build a site and have a photo gallery, what would your best line of defence be for protecting the images.

I understand watermarking is a great start but, is there a software better for the job, ie can you make a flash gallery and use coding to help protect the images better.

I know there is script out there to disable right click but it isnt very effective, I have also seen script for disabling print screen.

Or is this a case of if you want to show images on the internet then you are not going to do much from preventing their theft.

Thanks again people

Hope all is good with you Toby

That's the reality of it.

Work is steady here. Not setting the world alight but seem to have a job or two per week coming in. Been working a lot on my site as well. Site looks good, nice layout. PHP and SQL for you then!
