Post by DesignersSociety on March 17th 2013, 3:13 am

Is there a code to disable members from dragging images to a new tab and stealing the images in the gallery?

Well yes,

You could disable right click which would enable members not to be able to steal pictures. However the only problem with this is that they cannot copy & paste and its generally annoying for members when they cannot use these simple functions.

However, here is the tutorial on how to do this.

I already have right click disabled on the certain pages I need. What I'm looking for now is a way so they cant drag the images to open in a new tab, which can currently be done. I know they probably won't figure that out but still don't want people to start stealing images since I have kind of a virtual store going.

Users can always simply save the image to their computer.

For example, all iOS devices can save an image by pressing down the screen and waiting for the save pop-up.

My suggestion to you would be to leave a watermarked sample image for all users. This best guarantees that no one will steal the images, and you can then sell the original with no watermark to whomever the customer.

Is there a way to put a watermark on the gallery images or something because they all add theirs themselves. I then use a lil loophole by going to the slideshow address, which I hid that feature so they can't access. Then I save the image to give to them. So anyway to create the watermark just on the gallery pages where they view them but not the actual images?

Sorry I'm not quite understanding what you are saying.

What I meant was that you could only display images with watermarks in your Gallery. Then if a user wants to purchase it, you can upload the original from your computer and send it to them directly.

If you're asking how to make it so that there are no watermarks on the gallery, but if a user saves it and a watermark will appear (like the system on 9gag), then you would need an external server. Then you can either manipulate an image dynamically or simply serve a different file from a directory that is hidden.

Ok, Im not sure I wanna go through all that completely so I may just leave it. Right now right click is disabled and if they are willing to go to lengths like getting on mobile and saving then I guess they can have it. It's not crutial just something i wanted to ask about. Thank you for the help!
