    Is it possible to disable the ability to copy photos from my hubs?

    I've noticed if I right click on a photo, I can copy or save any photo shown on a hub. I'm not crazy about the idea that anyone can take any of my photos (which I took myself). Is there a way to protect them? To disable this feature?

    While I'm not sure if there is a way to disable the feature that allows users to right click and download your pictures... The one thing I can tell you is that if you are worried about the idea that anyone can take any of your photos, then disabling the right click download options is not going to help. Users can still use screen capture software to get your images if they really want to.

    So the only foolproof way to really protect your pictures is to not put them out there. That said, I believe most users will not use other images unless those images have a creative common licenses.

      True enough, I guess. Thanks for your answer. I have seen cases where one is unable to copy the photos - like on stock photo sites. Still wondering if that's possible by encrypting the photo file somehow.

    You can do that from ANY hub and ANY website. The only way to avoid that is to stamp your name over top of the photo, or implement it as part of a flash website (but still, can screen capture). Check out professional photographers: http://www.stephenanthonyphotography.com/ 

    They stamp their name over all of their photos.
