    You cannot, and search for previous discussions would have informed you of that.

    Yes, please don't ever try that. As you've discovered, it doesn't work, certainly can't stop image theft even if it did, and annoys users by removing a useful UI component.

    There is no technical solution to this. A user visiting your site will automatically download its images into their cache, so they already have them before you even try to stop access. This is just how the Web works. Your options are limited to using low quality samples (small dimensions or highly compressed), watermarking, or the threat of legal action.
