okay, I've put some images up on my site. Keep in mind though that it is on MySpace. I find learning html and other coding easier to begin on myspace so thats why I'm using it. Um question is... The images on the page, when I hover my mouse over it, IE displays a box at the top left with four options in it two of which are 'save as" and 'email'. I want to disable this box. please if you can provide simple html coding thats non-javascript. myspace blocks all javascript. thanks

Your basic image tag:


<img src="whatever.jpg">

Your basic image tag without that stupid IE tool bar:


<img galleryimg="no" src="whatever.jpg">

There is a meta tag that you can put on a page that blocks the tool bar for all images on a page but, it can cause problems. The method I have shown above is safe and effective.

Please note that it is not possible to disable saving images... you can disable that popup, but it will not stop people from finding a way to save them nor is it possible to do so, no matter what you try. Really. But good luck with the site :)

Sometimes I think if we just don't even talk about that until someone wants the impossible, it is better for all concerned. Getting rid of that stupid tool bar is both doable and desirable. If that's all that they want, I think we should just tell them how and let them 'go in peace'. :cool:

Perhaps. I know the image bar is a pain. I just figure I'll let them know that there's no way to pursue the issue further, so it's not worth trying.
Preemtive :p

lol, yea I just wanted to remove the toolbar, not because I didn't want people to "steal" my image, but because it was getting on my nerves. The toolbar is handy, however an eye irritant for myself. I just wanted my site to be more sleak and presentable. If the toolbar was irritating me, Im sure it irritates other. But I do appreciate the extra advice. Thanks again.
