Thanks

The short answer is "No".  If it can be seen, it can be copied.  Plus, in order to been seen, there is acopy somewhere on the client.  Plus, the page can be saved for offline viewing, which will download a copy of the pic. Plus, the page can be opened in Netscape Composer and saved with associated images. Plus,... you get the idea.  Basically, once it is put on the web for genersl viewing, it is out of your control.  You can always sue for copyright infringement, but lots of luck collecting anything worthwhile.  Sorry.

The only real way to do it is ussing a simple java applet lo show the images. But I don't recoment you this method due the increase of the page load time.

Or use the method of new Image() with Image being all code (ie, ou hafta find out all the values of every place of the image, and place that value in the variable, then make the new Image...and there you are.
