The ability to turn off the "right click" or "control click" when viewing a page is possible but does nothing to protect images because users can still get any image at any time in a few different ways:
- Every computer has the ability to take screen capture images. So even with the "right click" turned off, anyone could use screen capture to get any image.
- By viewing source code, it possible to find the urls to images and save them, regardless of "right-click" availability.
So in the end, right click "protection" really does nothing to protect your images.
In addition to all of this, the right-click functions provide several useful navigation tools that many users like to use. You can open links in a new window or new tab, view source code, save a page, print, etc.
It is a hinderance and annoyance to those users to have right-click functions turned off and one of the last things you want to do is annoy your website's visitors.
In some cases, I have even seen the "no right-click" protections send up a message saying things like "please do not copy my images",. I personally found this to be incredibly rude to be accused of trying to copy a site's images simply because I was right-clicking somewhere on the screen.
For all these reasons, turning off the 'right-click' functions becomes a negative rather than a positive to your site, so we do not offer that function.
The best way to ensure image security is to watermark images with your logo and/or web address before uploading them. Then you might even hope that people do use and share them because they are marked with your information. :)
