The only way to "secure" an image is not put it on the Internet.
Yeah, that's true, if someone is using a screen reader you're pretty much hosed. Even the invisible tag is useless against FireBug. It does slow some people down though. But tech savvy surfers will get it without much problem. Heck, they can probably just go to their browser cache and find it. Bear's right, you're pretty much out of luck. But if someones breathing down your neck to take some measures you can try what I mentioned above. I was merely trying to be helpful. Or maybe you should just have Bear here slap your manager and tell them what a waste of time it is. He seems pretty surly to me. I bet he'd do it.

I know, I know! You can use crappy quality images so you don't have to worry about them being copied! That worked so well for bands after all. You know, the ones that would have a web page and put crappy quality audio of their originals on the internet. Really made people wanna rush right out and buy their music!
Hey, this is fun.
