Locking your blog photos - Part II

I have my blog locked so you can't right click, but a friend of mine noted that when you click on the picture that is uploaded within Blogger, it takes it to another screen where you can then right click and download the picture. I believe I have fixed this issue. You shouldn't be able to click on the picture in this entry and enlarge it. It should be static.

Here is how I did it. The following is the code I see in the "Edit HTML" side of composing a blog entry.

I added the red to show you what I deleted (don't forget the last little red bit at the end). After you delete that code, go into the preview screen and try clicking on the photos. If you get a message asking you if you really want to navagate away from the page, you did something wrong. If nothing happens, you did it right. Also, if you see some wierd code by your pictures, or your picture didn't show up, you either didn't delete everything you should have, or you deleted too much.

Please try it and let me know what you think and if it works for you.

This is only for use when you are uploading your pictures within Blogger. If you are using "Edit HTML" and pulling code from a site like Flickr, you will need to change the settings within Flickr to not allow downloads. I have done this at my Flickr account.

S.C.H. Photo Shoot - Part II

I hope you enjoyed that little teaser yesterday. This family is so cute. I have to thank Marissa Vargason for this photo shoot. She did a mentoring session with me to help me improve my skills and technique. I felt like she was worth her weight in gold! She taught me so many great things that will help the quality of my pictures go up.

Another thing that I appreciated about Marissa is how generous she was with her information. She told me many of her great locations too. This location in downtown Salt Lake City is a beautiful location for a photo shoot. The fact that it is on the shady side of the buidling is perfect.

Here are some of the fun pictures we got.





I was blown away by this shot. I love how he is grabbing the brim of the hat and looking at the camera.



I had a great time doing this photo shoot. I hope you enjoyed these pictures. Let me know what you think.

Locking your blog photos - Disable Right Click

I have had several requests from people who want to know how to lock their blogs so people don't steal pictures. I was given this site when I asked the same question. It is really easy to do. It only takes 5 minutes.

Here is the raw link if the one above doesn't work:

****Update ****

I noticed that the links above are broken. Here is the HTML code I used to disable right clicking on my blog:

<script language="JavaScript"> <!--//
var message="Please do not use any images without permission from Brett. Feel free to e-mail Brett and ask for permission!";///////////////////////////////////function clickIE4(){if (event.button==2){alert(message);return false;}}function clickNS4(e){if (document.layersdocument.getElementById&&!document.all){if (e.which==2e.which==3){alert(message);return false;}}}if (document.layers){document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);document.onmousedown=clickNS4;}else if (document.all&&!document.getElementById){document.onmousedown=clickIE4;}document.oncontextmenu=new Function("alert(message);return false")// --></script>

If you have problems, just send me a message and I can help.

J.J.R. Photo Shoot Batch 2

And drumroll.... Here is batch 2 of the J.J.R. photo shoot.

Daddy told me to watch out for this little guy. He warned me I might get flipped off. Well, it happened more than once! I snapped a few pictures and his dad said he wanted one. He is going to use it on his Facebook profile I think. That will get a lot of laughs and comments!

To see the rest of the J.J.R. set, click HERE!


Let me know what you think of this cute family!

J.M.B. Photo Shoot Batch 2 is Done!

Here it is... Batch two of the J.M.B. photo shoot is done.

Mr. Handsome had a great time climbing all over the old farming equipment and exploring. That is what I love about this place. I can catch those natural smiles as they have fun.

Make sure you check the entire batch out at my flickr account. Look at the set called J.M.B. Photo Shoot or click here to go directly to the set.

As always, I love to hear your comments.
