Hi vijay,

i am not talking about the long menu which come right at the click ...

even when the mouse is on the IMAGE and i dont click anything a small SHORTCUT toolbar comes on the left-top of the IMAGE ... this is the only one more thing that i am trying to prevent ...

ofcourse i am not going to rewrite the browser .. haha ..but i thought that since i DISABLED the menu which comes with RIGHT CLICK, then i should also be able to disable the TOOLBAR which comes just when the mouse goes over the IMAGE ...

Suggest Something ...

Sudhan.

Yes Sudhan, I meant the toolbar when hover the image in the second part of your previous request. That is default behaviour of IE inbuilt with it. So I don't think that can be disabled.

Meybe, let me do some research on that and let you know if I find something useful.

Cheers!

It *can* be disabled. Add the following <meta> tag to the head section of the document:

<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no" />

I also recommend reading that article about disabling the right-click. I agree with most of what's said in that article. Disabling it looks unprofessional, can limit the user in using your site / page (I always right-click somewhere on the page and choose Back instead of clicking the Back button on the toolbar; something I couldn't do anymore on your site, making me never come back anymore) but most of all, it doesn't work. Once you view the image in the browser, it's already in the cache. It's a 2 second job to lift it from the cache and do whatever I want with it.

If you really want to protect your images, don't put them on-line, or put them on-line in a low and crappy resolution. Alternatively, add a large text across the image stating your copyright notice, or embed a hidden watermark in the image, so you can trace thieves.

Cheers,

Imar

That was nice to know Imar, that it can be disabled. Looking the meta tag, it looks that was within my reach;), but couldn't get time to search on. But good to know on that.

Sudhan, should be happy about that now. What next?;)

Cheers!

Hi Imar & Vijay,

That Was cool work IMAR ... really ... and a MUCH BETTER way

bcoz during this time i cam across some information about it from the same link that Vijay had sent me ..
in the Internet Explorer - OPtions->Advanced ... there is a option by which we can DISABLE the image toolbar ..

but thats useless... and i couldnt use it ... any way this sounds great ...

and as Vijay said ... I AM INDEED VERY VERY HAPPY.

by the way Vijay that Link was really COOL.

thanks guys.

Sudhan.

The real method to prevent copying of image is to develop (buy) an applet.

The applet should take a number alone. Depending on the number it should display image.
Then there is no way to know the filename of the image.

You can prevent the print screen option also. Please do not ask me how.
But when you take screen shot it will show only a black colour instead of picture. I have
seen this with many applets.

A number of such applets are available at http://www.hotscripts.com
