Question: I want to protect my images from being swiped. How can I do this?

The protection of images is a popular request on the web. As a result, many methods were created to prevent image theft, such as the ever-widespread no right click script, which you can find at Dynamic Drive.com(see below). The script causes an alert box to pop up, preventing anyone from right-clicking and saving your images to their hard drive. 

Although this script works in preventing right clicking, it can't prevent theft entirely; all a very determined person has to do is just create a screenshot. Because of that possibility, some people have resorted to watermarking (placing a faint, ghost-like copyright notice) in the corner of their pics. This method still isn't failsafe, but it can slow thieves in their tracks.
