web based question

My apologies for cross posting.
I know a number of people here have their own personal webpages with their UW photos on there. I have a question for you if you have a spare moment. Do you know how to disable the right mouse click function and/or protect images from being saved? I know there are indeed ways around most protection but I thought it would at least discourage most people.

"And expect it to do what, exactly? Protect content? Not a chance.
To the OP: read around. Content cannot be protected on the Web. People that might take it for redistribution (rather than personal use, which shouldn't be an issue) know how to get around any trick you try to use. The end result is stolen content, but legitimate users that can no longer use their browser properly.
Watermark content, or reduce its quality. Make sure that there's no point in redistribution."

Watermark content, or reduce its quality. Make sure that there's no point in redistribution.
I would also add:-
"Watermark AND reduce quality. Ensure metadata, detailing copyright notice, contact details etc is embedded within the image file".
Nothing can stop someone lifting your work, but you can make life easier for yourself by making it easier to find and recover damages when the infringer turns out to be a commercial organisation.
