Does anyone know how to disable common image editing functions such as rotate, flip, skew, etc., by potential viewers on images we post to the net?

regards,
anthony

As a computer science student I'd say it's impossible. You might be able to find a javascript or something that prevent people that come to your site from downloading your pic directly (or write your own - if you know how) - but there are really simple ways around that too - and it doesn't even require one to be a hacker to do. Images on the net are only pixels afterall.

If you are conserned that people will steal your work then you shouldn't be posting on the internet. Everyone seem to think copyright laws don't apply to them and that once it's on the internet it's in the public domain. :mad:
