    New to wordpress Is there a way to make it so the photos that are uploaded to my blog are not able to be saved by anyone. I don’t want people to be able to save my copywriter images.

    The blog I need help with is nicholekleinphotography.wordpress.com.

    No, there isn’t. You can put up a copyright warning in a text widget, but the best thing is to watermark your images. If you use Monotone or Duotone, right-click, save is disabled, but it takes seconds for anyone to get around that kind of copy protection. Basically, if it is online, it will get used.

    Don’t upload any images over 800px wide and make sure they are optimized for the web at 72dpi and not at a very high quality setting (nothing over medium). That way if someone were to grab one, they can’t really do much with it as far as printing it since the dpi is so low.

    As raincoaster says, if you put it on the web, someone is going to take it and use it.
