    Yes. Bet it was done to prevent people from saving images from profiles. Of course anyone tech savvy can get around this.

    I noticed it too. I was trying to copy a funny pic from a forum (not someone's profile pic) and the ability was gone.

    On FireFox here.

    This is bad ... I always open new tabs in this site .. now I can't ..

    Besides ... Right-click isn't the only way to copy photos ..

    I'm using microsoft's explorer ... it's the same everywhere ..

    Heh true. Only problem is, the site itself runs on javascript. You can turn it off and tab-browse as usual, but you can't reply, email, hotlist, buddylist etc. Good for peeking in only I guess.

    Just wanna say I do not like sites that do this. It is often futile, as people can always find ways around it if they really want to (I can easily, and there are a lot of other ways pictures can be copied anyway). But I guess this is a direct response to the complaint on RJ's google-ability, so I'll leave it up to the subscribers to decide.

    On the other news, the Sign In link at the top of the forum pages is still linked incorrectly to the Join Now page. But I LOVE the registration page verification button. LOL

    Hi guys. So it looks like I'll be returning the right click functionality this morning. Sorry about that. The problem is I'm damned either way. When I leave it on I get endless emails about photo theft and when I turn it off...well...I get forums like this one. icon_smile.gif It'll be turned on in the next couple of hours.

    As for the sign in link at the top of the site...oops...I'll take care of that too.

    People worried about photo theft need to watermark their images in a manner that makes them unusable by others. Making the entire website significantly less usable is not the solution.

    Yeah, glad when right-click returns, use it for text editing functions, too, like instant spelling corrections in thread posts.

    Thanks Chris. RJ can not be responsible for photos, or any details we choose to put on this site. Guys need to take responsibility for photos they choose to put up here.

    not having any right click anywhere onthe site is annoying..

    Isn`t it possible just to do it on profiles? It won´t stop everyone but that would make it a bit harder to steal pics.


    OH and if someone would post how to watermark that wd be helpful.

    thanks icon_smile.gif

    For future use, there are keyboard shortcuts you can use for copy / paste, cut / paste, and opening new tabs. These work for PC. I'm not a Mac user, so I'm not sure about the functionality of them.

    To open a link in a new tab, hold the Ctrl key and click a link.

    To open a blank new tab, hold the Ctrl key and hit the letter 'T'.

    To copy text, highlight the text you want to copy and hit Ctrl and the letter 'C' at the same time.

    To cut text, highlight the text and hit Ctrl and 'X' at the same time.

    To paste text, activate the text area / text box (whereever you want to paste) and hit Ctrl and 'V' at the same time.

    Once you get used to using your keyboard, you'll find it faster than right-clicking and hunting to click again. Many sites disable right-click-ability, so these keyboard functions come in handy. If you REALLY don't want to use the keyboard, you can highlight text and go to the Edit menu at the top of your browser, where you'll find the Copy, Cut, and Paste options.

    I also agree with the watermark emblem on your pictures if you don't want them taken and used. Just consider any picture you put online up for public use. Some of us have ways around internet "security". Coming from a programmer, nothing is 100% secure, and any security can be broken with enough effort, even your "private" pics.

    In Windows, you can use Windows Paint to add text to a picture.

    Thank you for returning the right-click. Yay! Just to add some perspective, I use right-click a lot to navigate back/forward on a page. I also highlight on words, right-click, and search google with right-click.

    But as others have stated, image theft can't be stopped. Print screen, browser cache, disable javascript.. icon_neutral.gif

    For those who know, context menu changes for saving images can be turned off easily in more advanced browsers like Firefox.

    Easier ways to protect images can be done with mod_rewrite in Apache. Controlling referrers is easy enough, but, inline links to the same server are real hard to pickup and would involved passing some environment variables around.

    It's real hard to keep a right click from being done once an image is in cache and if someone knows how to set Firefox. Even if the Javascript sets the context menu off, I'm able to turn Javascript off and grab the image, and use my regular functionality (unless the links are Javascript which then breaks the search engine, which is something most folks don't want to do. Don't even get Logan or me started on Flash). Even worst case, images can be fetched from the browser cache, even if they're sent pragma no-cache, which doesn't work right in M$. You can also send content-expired, but that's just gonna' run up bandwidth.

    Mostly, folks shouldn't put stuff on the Net that they don't consider public, pee pee pics, or not.

    With regard to watermarking, imagemagick can do do all that, and the GD library, as well, but, it gets CPU intensive being done in real time.

    Folks can use their image editor to watermark an image. Something as simple as a text layer on top of an image will ident stuff. You can also interlace information into images, if you wanta' prove that someone stole your image. I had a case a few years back where a professional hockey team stole an image, and because it had interlaced id information I was able to prove it to them and they were forced to remove it. (True story)

    In general, using The Internet does not entitle one to bad behavior.
