Disable right click. on images with just CSS

Recommended Posts

Is there a code to disable right-click with JUST CSS, every code I happen upon either is just for the Advanced code injection for header/footer (which my plan doesn't support), or if it is for CSS, it just downloads a few images from your page or a html file.

Thanks in advance!

CSS can change how things look but not how they work. CSS is like makeup.

To change how things work you need JavaScript. JS is the plastic surgeon.

Folks are overly concerned about their images being copied. Be aware, even if you use JavaScript someone who really wants your images can defeat your JS code and get them anyway. If you don't want your images shared, don't put them on the internet.

Whole-heartedly agree with @creedon, there are multiple ways to save an image on a web page without right-clicking. The best suggestion I have is you can protect your images from unauthorized commercial usage by keeping the image size as small as you can get away with and compressed, never put the original image online (this is also good for page load times). This isn't a perfect solution, but will make your image unsuitable for many uses (until AI can upscale your image... but that opens up so many more future issues) and you can at least potentially protect your copyright by owning the original image.

Additionally, this CSS can prevent clicking on images...but that can impede the usage of your website if you have any image with click-through links.

img {
  pointer-events: none;
