If I can see the picture I can save it. Not only by right-clicking.
Also by dragging it to the desktop or by opening the Activity window (Safari) and option-double-click the image.
[Watermark your images|http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=watermarking+images& ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8]. And don't publish the originals.
And check with your colleagues.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2009 4:48 PM (in response to Greg Craybas)To add to Wyodor's suggestion of watermarking there's an iPhoto plugin,Impression, for watermarking. Also there are a number of watermarking apps you can try. They can be found at VersionTracker.com by searching there for
"watermark". Or if you have an image editor that can add text to a photo you can use it like this.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2009 9:32 PM (in response to Greg Craybas)Hello Greg and welcome to the forum.
Just remember: if you're going to watermark then do it in a way so that others with similar image editing applications that you used to add the watermark can not use those applications to remove the watermark like this.Apple Certified Trainer

Otherwise people can left click on images in Slideshow and download them - they show up as PNG images.iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), iWeb '09, v3.0.1

mobileme gallery has the facility why can this not be applied to the gallery function within iweb?
An MMe gallery only has the capability of not having the photo files that were used to create the gallery downloaded. It does not prevent any visitor from taking a screenshot of the photo for use. Granted it will be a small rendition of the photo but one nevertheless.
You can do the same in an iWeb slideshow or Album as you can with a MMe gallery, i.e. set the option to not provide image files for downloading like Starfish Day has already described in his post above.3Ghz iMac, 4G RAM, 1TB HD; MBP 2.16 Ghz 2G RAM; 1.5TB/160GB HDs;, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Canon:i850/8600F, Epson R280; 4G Nano, 30G Video iPod; Panasonic DMC-FS15
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 18, 2010 12:25 PM (in response to Greg Craybas)There is a very simple solution from within iWeb. It may not work great on a ton of photos, but if you're uploading one or two it's great. Go to your "insert" toolbar and add a shape. I use rectangle. Place the rectangle over your pictures (you may even be able to do a whole page). Format the fill color to be "none." You will now essentially have a transparent cover over your pictures. They look normal on the web, but prevent any "right-clicking" or "control-clicking" from accessing the picture. I use watermarking as well, but this seems to be the best solution so far without using any other programs.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

Again it will not prevent anyone from taking a screenshot of the image or using Safari's Activity window to locate and download the image.3Ghz iMac, 4G RAM, 1TB HD; MBP 2.16 Ghz 2G RAM; 1.5TB/160GB HDs;, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Canon:i850/8600F, Epson R280; 4G Nano, 30G Video iPod; Panasonic DMC-FS15
