You can't keep an image from being saved ... for me to see it, it has to be in my computer's memory, and once it's there it's MINE. I do have some fiendish ideas for keeping people from using your images ON YOUR SERVER to decorate their pages with ... it's in a post about "graphics parasites" a while back.

Deb's idea (if you can control the image that finely) to deny access to any request that doesn't come from a page on your site works, but putting your URL and a blurb into the bottom of the image is good too.
