Copying Photos

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I used to be on BLack Planet and on this website they used to have a feature that made the photos unable to copy. So do you think that you can do this. I heared a rumor about people taking photos from the site and misusing them.

Wasn't a rumor.

technically it is very hard to stop people. The print screen function can grab any photo regardless. The thing you are referring to is a javascript function to stop peopple from right clicking and saving images. Trust me, that will annoy the heck out of MS users as people do that alot :P.

You're right; it is pretty much impossible to stop people from stealing images. As long as screen prints are available, people will save anything they like. Even if you don't allow people to right-click images, they can still sometimes drag them onto their desktops and save them, or drag the image into the address bar of the browser and do a 'save as.'

One way to discourage people from stealing images is to watermark them in a way that makes them pretty much useless, but even then if someone is motivated enough they can photoshop it out. The disallowing right-clicks on JavaScript is so easy to hack anyway. All you have to do is download the source code, hack out the script, and reload it in the browser. Poof, it's gone. Easy as pie.

Even simpler, by virture of viewing the page with the image, the image is already loaded in their cache and they already have a copy of the image on their hard drive.

They tell me it's impossible to keep someone from stealing an image, but you can alter it as homesick suggests.

Lets just leave it at the fact that images posted on the internet are for the whole world to see. Don't post anything if you want it to be private. If you follow this then you will be fine :).

Too true. Excellent advice.

It is not that, I was that they where complying a list of people that where trying to get visas that where muslim, maybe attack us or something that was all. My photos are nice and I like to see what I am talking and I figured people felt the same. I guess I was wrong. Photos of sites can up.

The thing is, Private...whenever you post images on the internet, someone can copy them and use them in any way they like. There is very little technologically you can do to stop them. You can always try to take legal action, but it's usually more trouble than it's worth.

Putting images out on the web is a calculated risk. It's up to you to decide how comfortable you are with that.
