Ultimately you can't really stop them if they know what they are doing. Two obvious ways that are difficult to prevent.

  1. Go to the browser's file cache folders and find the image there.

  2. Screen grab (e.g. ALT+Print Screen) or software that enables an area of teh screen to be copied (e.g. the Windows Snipping Tool).

Only real solution is not to put the images on teh web in the first place. But you could try putting watermarks in the images which may well put some people off.

Another possible solution is to watermark them.

Make sure that it is right across the middle of the picture. You will not stop the copying but if your watermark is right, at least you will get the credit for it.
