there is a site called dynamic drive, you can download a script for no right click which doesnt allow anyone to copy anything from your page. Yola experts may have another option this is somethign I have used in the past.

Hello Csarahmae

You can use the suggestion that William posted (thanks William!) however, just be aware that tech savvy people will can find ways to circumvent the protective measures put in place.

The good news however is that there are other ways to protect your pictures, and make sure that you get suitable credit where credit is due.

1.) Watermark the images:
This is the most effective way to ensure that another user cannot take your pictures and use them as their own - and what is better, if they do take the pictures and use them on their own website, they will effectively be advertising your work for you...for free :).

If you are selling your work; what many people do is provide low-resolution watermarked images on the site, with an order form for people to request the larger unmarked images.

2.) Publish your pictures under a license:
Creative commons provides an easy way for you to choose a license for your work.
Check out their license generator at:

Finally, a good example of how you can protect your images is available here:

Note the use of watermarking and a license.
