What's the easiest way for not allowing saving any image from my site?

Thank you

There's always a way to get an image. You should add a watermark to the images so others can't use them.

put this inbetween the <HEAD> tags

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.4.min.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[
$('img').bind('contextmenu', function(e){
return false;

Keep in mind that @mlegg's first answer was more accurate. For example, if you use the script he mentions, I could circumvent it by (off the top of my head) disabling javascript, or I could simply use the [print screen] button on my keyboard. That is, assuming my browser even allows the context menu to be blocked in the first place (which it should not; websites have no business trying to take control of the browser away from the user).

The short answer is: it is not possible. If someone can see the image, they have already downloaded it. The picture is on the user's computer, not on your server. That's just how HTTP works.

Here are some simple script to disable the right click, they may work to stop the average Joe from getting it. But as stated there are many ways to get a pic from a website. Even some watermarks can simply be cropped out if they only appear in the corner of the pic.




Here's one to block copying text also:
