    I’m interested in starting my own website but I’m concerned about building a site which won’t allow for right-click save as. Is that possible with HTML sites? If not, would you recommend a flash site?

    • Hi

      If they can see it on the browser, they can copy it. Even if you use flash, all they have to do is capture screen.

      • KScarlett

        There are ways, but none of them can work 100%. For the content to be visible, the browser has to be able to reach it. Look at 500px: you can’t right click to save the pictures, but with less than ten seconds of looking through the html source, you can find the link to the full-res picture anyway.
        The only way to make sure nobody can download your work is to not put it online in the first place. If there was a way to completely prevent it, do you think stock photo websites would still be obscuring their pictures with such ugly watermarks?

    • Grimm

      There is a way to do this with jQuery but it is a little bit complicated. You can encode the URLs to your photos and then do a onRightClick event that calls a certain function that does not allow ‘save as…’ Google Drive is an example of a site doing this.
