First it doesn't keep people from getting the images. They can just hit Print Screen key on their keyboard, or copy the photo out of their browser cache or use any of a number of other methods. But it also puts you at a liability risk since it affects people with disabilities. A number of accessibility options are located on the right click menu and are used by people with disabilities. A number of law suits are not starting to appear on this issue. It is also just not moral or right to disable the right click because it robs the legitimate user of many powerful functions that the browser provides. I have over 25 options on my right click menu which I use right click on web pages and it is very annoying to have someone disable features on my computer. The easiest and safest thing to do to provide a reasonable amount of protects is just to publish lower rez images and put a watermark on them. That makes it more trouble than its worth to try and steal them. Here is an example:
They can steal it, but it will take a lot of work to get rid of the faint watermark.
