[Pro] action to stop downloading images from a site

I’m sure I’ve seen an action somewhere which stops viewers from downloading or dragging and dropping images from my site but I am unable to locate it again.
I would like to incoroprate this into my galleries if possible
Can anyone help with a link or other info please.

Tim’s Image Guardian action will help http://www.freewayactions.com/product.php?id=006

But bear in mind: If the image can be seen it can be copied!

There are many things that purport to stop people stealing your images
— none of them work. Basically, if you can see it on screen, you can
steal it by taking a screenshot, even if you’ve disabled right-
clicking, put a transparent box on top of it so they drag that
instead, and any of the wild and wonderful methods for ‘stopping’
people stealing stuff from your site. Folks will probably write in to
say that there are ways of ‘making it harder’ for people to steal, but
given that it’s fundamentally the simplest thing in the world to make
a screenshot, why go to even that trouble?
The only alternative is one I also have sworn I’ll never do myself:
watermark your pictures. This basically amounts to defacing your best
work just in case someone steals it, and I implore you not to do it!
A stolen picture does not equate to a ‘lost sale’. Locks only keep
honest people out.

Exactly so. Also remember that the images shown on your site will be
low resolution; they’ll contain no more pixels than are required to
display at that size on a monitor. That imposes an absolute limit on
what can be done with them.
