Protect image

What’s the simplest way of ‘copy protecting’ an image.
I seem to remember ‘Image Guardian’ action, but I don’t think it’s active any more. Is there another out there or another method I could use?

It’s still there and very much working in Freeway 5;

Embedding images into a Flash file will also prevent many of the
common copying methods (drag, right-click, IE’s image toolbar, etc);

Aha thanks Tim. I think I’ll go the action route.

I’ve actually put an empty box over an image so the image can’t be selected.

No such thing as a 100% protected option. Mac creates pretty good screendrops and you can always make one of those. Best option is to watermark your image in a way to make it difficult to remove with an image editor.

Bit of a waste of effort: you can just take a screenshot.

Personally I wouldn’t let the slim chance that I’d lose anything in the unlikely event that anyone ‘stole’ one of my pictures make me deface it so that nobody could see it as intended. Just saying …

Well, I guess we should have no images on the web, then.

None that you are worried about losing as there is no 100% secure way to protect them.
