Protecting images from copy or download

Protecting images from copy or download

I will be posting images using the PowerGallery but I have a specific restriction on the images. I must prevent them from being downloaded or copied. Essentially I want to prevent the user from right clicking on the image and copying.

I tried in the demo galleries (index.php?gallery=6&theme=dark) and found that I could NOT copy the image directly (GOOD for me) but that I could right click and "Save target as...". This let me save the index.htm to my desktop and when I launched that link I could get full access to the images and copy them.

What is the best way for me to protect my images from copying?
