I'm in the process of redesigning an art website. The current site has image hotlinking blocked using the .htaccess file, but still has a problem with images being copied to the visitors hard drive.
The more savvy visitor can get around the "No Right Click" script that most sites implement to deter image copying by checking the source code for the image name, taking a snapshot of the window, or checking the browers cache files.
But I once saw a script that I COULDN'T get around and was wondering if anyone knew how to implement it.
When you'd click on an image thumbnail to view the larger image, a new browser window would open, with just the image displayed and no menu bar or scrollbar. If you tried to right OR left click anywhere the window would close.. even if you clicked outside of the image window. If you pressed any key on your keyboard, the window would close. When I looked for the image in my cache files, it wasn't there.. some sort of "NO CACHE" command perhaps? If there is such a thing?
My scripting abilities are limited to changing a couple of parameters, but that's about it. I could never figure out how to go about writing this particular script much less any other kind of script.
