How to Disable Picture Downloading in Blogspot

Save

When you upload pictures to your Blogspot blog, you have little control over who can view and download them. No matter what browser a visitor to your website uses, he is able to right-click on your blog with his mouse and use the "Save Image" command to download your pictures to his computer. The only way to disable picture downloading in Blogspot is by adding a JavaScript code that disables the right-click function. Since JavaScript cannot be added by editing your layout's HTML code, add the JavaScript code to a new page element instead.
