    From time to time I supply images to a number of outlets local to where I live. I want to try and protect my images from being reproduced. All images are supplied on disc.
    Is there a way to ensure the images are not copied from the original CD. The copyright symbol already appears on each image but it is fairly easy to remove it. Any help with this topic would be most welcome.
    Regards
    Gerry

    All cds can be breached. So don't waste the money. I would recommend that you only put the files on the CD at a lower quality resolution (say 72ppi) so they can't print em off, but can still view them ok. If someone really, really want's your pic, they will find away.

    As webby says, there is always a way around everything. The thing you have to do is to make it not worth their while, so makeing the quality poor for printing (but fine for th emonitor) is probably the best bet.

    If you really want to ruin any change of a sale you could always paste you name across the face of every image Wink

    hi

    Here's one for ya. Friend went to a site and loved a pic, she tried to save the image and it wouldn't let her copy it... so i easily said just make a screen shot and crop it out... so in reality any thing can be done when thought about the easiest way to do it.

    cheers
