Hello. This may not necessarily a Shopify question. Is there a way to prevent people from downloading images from our website? We are concerned about protecting our vendors's copyright.

I wouldnt worry too much, if your vendor's images are being used to sell their products then they wont mind you using them.  Just put a comment on your website like "all images and trademarks are the property of the respective owners".  My suppliers are a major wll known high street company and they copy images from their suppliers websites too,  Even if you disable the rightclick then often your images can still be downloaded by just turning off Javascript.

Thank you for your input, however, my concern is not with the vendors (as I take most of the photographs or get permission from the vendors before using their own photographs), but rather with parties who might falsely use the images from our estore, promoting the items as their own creation or providing wrong information with the images. Our products are one-of-a-kind, unique crafts, created by our members...

There is no sure-shot way to prevent people from saving images published on your web site. You can use Javascript to prevent right-clicks on the images, but visitors can still Print Screen your images to save them, or just drag and drop them on their desktop. Take note that scripts that prevent right-clicks can be easily disabled by turning off JavaScript in the browser.

The only way to protect your images is to add a watermark to the product images you upload.

Hello @ShengLong. Thank you for recommending the app
I tried it out, added the watermarks for my all product images. It works well. But does it automatically work when I have a new product?

Been through this a lot and I have invested money but ended up other stores are benefitting from it. I came across this UNIQUE app, and it is very cool. It detects other stores that use my brand's images and contents.. It automatically sends a notification to me through email and it automatically deletes those photos.

Try it. they have a free trial.
