or Cloaking your Images Behind a Transparent gif.
This little trick will stop most
users from stealing your images. It will not stop knowledgeable or
determined users from stealing your image but will stop most users from
stealing images. What we do is place the original image into a folder
on your image host or web host. Then we place that image in a table as
a background image. Then we place a transparent gif file of the same
size as the image over the image inside the table. When a user right
clicks the image they will save the transparent gif and end up with
nothing but a blank image.
click on the image and try to either view the image or save the image
and you should only get a blank image
Your image will
have to be sized to fit your table this way and you won't be able to
resize the image via HTML but if you do not want your images taken this
will slow them down.
