Any way to do the whole page. Too many pictures to do each one.

OK...I put it on my index page.http://www.lauraregan.com  It seems to disable the right click ability. Can you try it? THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help! Technology gets me every time....I just paint the pictures! :-)

No it doesn't. Try it yourself.

I'd rather be able to paint!  lol

Sorry, but I can pretty much grab any content as can others who have know-how. The code and the border will definitely dissuade users who aren't particularly savvy, but won't stop those who are and it's a dirty shame.

You are clever....even if you can't paint! lol!! Well, I think I'll still put this code AND the borders on the pictures, then one at a time, I will load LOW res images. Thank you again for your good advice!

Good idea to use them because it will prevent some folks from grabbing them.

You have a brush attached to your hand and I have a computer, but in my next life I'm trading for a brush. 

Best of Luck out there!

Drew, do you put this on every page with images?
Mine is the butterfly image above....and I never thought far enough in advance to how it can still be ripped off. Looks like I've got some "updating" to do!

Yes. You would need to put the code on each page. Just keep in mind that if they want it, they will get, you can only make it more difficult. For this reason, a watermark is a good idea, and also resizing to a lower quality. This helps page speed and makes it less desirable to take.
