Right-Click Image Protection

Problem:

How can I protect the images on my website?

Solution:

You can stop right clicks with a script (copy and paste it from this page if you want to) in the <HEAD> section of your HTML code.
        <script type="text/javascript">
        
        var msg="mouse right click disabled(or any message you want)";
        
        function click(e) {
        	if (document.all) {
        		if (event.button == 2) {
        		alert(msg);
        		return false;
        		}
        	}
        	
        	if (document.layers) {
        		if (e.which == 3) {
        		alert(msg);
        		return false;
        		}
        	}
        	}
        
        	if (document.layers) {
        		document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
        		}
        	document.onmousedown=click;
         
        </script>
