In light of what happened
 
With freak safari and my boyfriend's pics, and yea...

Could right-clicking be disabled on images?

There's not much you can do about people copying pics, as once it's on the computer screen, it's already been downloaded :(

Yeah--but it takes considerably more intelligence to hunt down the picture in the bowels if your computer than to "save as" to your desktop. Besides freak safari people, I bet a lot of the guys on here would prefer not having their photos downloaded into some 40 year old's porn stash, you know? I think it'd be a smart idea to disable right-clicking just as a matter of course.

Exactly! That's what I thought.

You don't know who's on here randomly grabbing pics.

If you are unable to see pictures currently, when you right-click and save them they will be downloaded as thumbnails.

If you are able to see them on the other hand, making a screenshot of them works just as good, so it's really not going to stop a lot of people.

Sorry:p

Well, now, that's not true. I've been to plenty of picture sites where you could neither right click, nor take a screen shot. It can be done, but some times it's not worth it. Just thought I'd mention that.

I would love to see a site where I can't easily get a picture - please nominate one :)

Toddle 16th June 2007 06:12 AM

You'd have to search for one. It was a few years ago that I saw it that had a picture that I wanted to save.

Too much hassle for a forum-site.
We can't just click our fingers and suddenly people cant take the embedded links and disable right click.

And there will always be the PrintScreen button.

Omniscient 16th June 2007 07:43 PM

And don't forget that firefox can override disabled right-clicking. But I still think it's worth a shot, some people don't know there are other ways to save an image...
