=) A bit high on the annoyance factor. And what about screen capture?

It's impossible to display an image without obscuring it (which DPC must for voting/fidelity), and protect it from screen capture.

Cool Scott, but I jacked it faster than one can right click :(

Love it! But it took all of three mouse clicks and I had the pic.

Nope - it's right here for the taking:

The debate over stopping right click never ends. There have been several threads on it around DPC.

Personally, I think your scheme would stop casual thieves like bloggers and folks on flickr. I'd bet many of them have no clue how to read HTML code, which is how I grabbed the URL above.

But wow, is that annoying to look at.
07/13/2007 11:18:12 PM · #9
It will definitely stop the casual browser from grabbing the pic but to anyone with any web experience, it is useless.

Yes, it is still easy to get, However, it does keep the honest people Honest, and others a challenge to overcome.

Probably better to say, reminds the honest people to be honest. Rest of it can just be dropped.

Not one bit. I just click my handle little "NoScript" button, and bam.

If you simply want to keep honest people honest, this is probably the best way to do it:

- not annoying
- does not prevent right-click on the whole page so you can still right-click links
- does not protect the image, simply let the casual right-clicker know that they shouldn't copy the image.

Using Firefox in Linux I still get the right-click menu. Your warning message does pop up, but underneath the menu -- that is, the text of the warning is completely covered.

Can simply drag the image right off the page to the desktop as well.

Odd - works fine for me in Linux (FC6) and Firefox 1.5 (that's what I'm using now.) And IE and Firefox in Windows.

I said it doesn't protect the images, though maybe one could disable dragging as well...

The question is - is it better than nothing?

Can be easily dragged into PS as well as using the stylish add-on in Firefox that will display all media, then it's an easy save. Shrink wrapping under a clear gif is useless too. Java & flash viewers, though slow, offer the only drag & drop & stylish media saving prevention methods so far as I know.

I'll be happy the day DPC adds a watermark to all challenge images after a challenge. After a while, if they are always the same, aren't even noticeable.

Keep in mind, I said it's only to keep honest/lazy/non-computer-savvy people honest. That's really all you can do, because if someone wants it, they can get it.

PS: updated the script Brad and RouterGuy, it should now reject dragging with JavaScript, not a clunky transparent gif. (though I've only tested this part in Linux/FF)

Again the crux: Is it better than nothing?

Brad In Firefox, Goto Page Info and click on the media tab and scroll through every image on the page. Hit the save button when you found the on you want.

Dont even have to have the add in if you dont want.

My guess is that you have unchecked this box in your preferences:

' . substr('//onetacoshort.com/trash/cntxt.jpg', strrpos('//onetacoshort.com/trash/cntxt.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

It still drags. I only get the warning if I right-click.

OK, it no longer drags in IE. Also tested and works in Safari for Windows.

Honestly, imo no. The images should be watermarked or people should get over seeing a 640x480 jpeg pop up on other sites (and get taken down...) a few times a year. Just my 2 cents.

What are we doing again? I keep seeing right-click mentioned here...

I'm gonna tell you a little secret... I got a law abiding, church going Administrative Assistant (not mine) at work who barely knows what an OS is that can (I caught her) get around any right click scheme to snake a shot on the web.

I don't know why we are wasting energy trying to defeat right-click when that isn't even the method of choice anymore. As pointed out it only keeps honest people honest.

Windows Vista has even made it easier... no Alt+PrtScrn then open your editor, open a New File and paste from the clipboard. I can snag,crop and save a screen as fast as anyone can right click/Save Picture As...

Vista users type snipping in the Active Search field and try it...
07/14/2007 07:55:47 PM · #25
Right-click and drag-n-drop blocking (in a non-obtrusive manner) closes up the easiest method of taking the images.

At least it's something. It's a responsible precaution.

I'll tell you what's wasting time - people who keep mentioning "oh yeah, well what about screen capture". The limitations are understood. No matter how much you argue, snag, paste, crop, and save is simply not as fast/easy a proposition as right-click, save.
