my site has a lot of photos, is there a code to disable right-clicking/"save as"?

There is code that will, in some circumstances, disable the right mouse button event on webpages.
It's not worth the effort. You're not protecting anything by implementing it, and it'll only annoy users.

This has been discussed at length in these forums. You'll also find explanations on the Web for why it's not practical.

Place a clear and intrusive copyright notice on the images, or don't allow full quality or full-size images to be publicially available.

not to mention that even if you could disable it in the context menu, anybody could still go through the source code and pic out which images they want and copy it to the url bar, and save it from there

unless you are trying to protect pictures of something you are selling, its kinda doubtfull its worth protecting much anyway, and if you are selling something, dont put high quality high resolution pics up that could easily be copied and put on somebody else's page (put up relatively low resolution pics/ low quality - so they arent worth stealing, or make it unconvincing if somebody does steal em)
