Hi guys,

When we save a web page using Save As option, we see a folder created with all images used in the web page. I want to prevent this copy of my images on local disk.
Is there any option in HTML to do this?

the image is downloaded to tif to display, the user can copy it at will

Anyone can capture the screen and crop. Not worth the hassle. Even background images (css/style) can be copied like this or via "Inspect Element" in Chrome or equivalents in other browsers. I've come to realise that anything I create and publish can be ripped off. That's the nature of today's web. Having said that, everybody plunders the image tab in Google for pics. I'm not saying it's right, just a fact. Watermark/logostamp if you must.
