Hi all,
I've been giving a lot of thought to protecting my images without applying honking huge butt ugly watermarks all over the model. I also know the means and ways of getting around a lot of, if not ALL anti-copy protection schemes (which I won't go into here...no sense letting the cat out of the bag). So I figured, "Well if someone REALLY wants my images....let's make them WORK for it".

My question is this...

Does anyone know if there's a way to basically 'explode' an image into smaller bits of pixel dust that would have to be pieced back together by a browser to give you a complete viewable image...but not bound together?

As an example let's say that I have an image that is 100 pixels by 100 pixels. I would rip this apart into 10x10 pixel mini-images thereby having 100 'blocks'. Then through some magical html coding each 'block' would show up in it's original position (remember all images start from the upper left corner with a matrix position of 0,0 and then the pixels are laid out in a to the right, down one row at left most position...laid out to the right, etc.). So an image with exact block sizing would appear whole but trying to capture anywhere on the image would only give you one block.

So for my example some **** for brains would have to juggle 100 blocks...imagine when having to deal with something that's 1030 pixels wide by 800 pixels high!

Does this make sense to everyone? Would the browser download time be any greater this way as opposed to a fullblown image file?

???

Why? (Note: The automatically animated question mark is annoying. Someone please tell me how to make it stop.)

One of these images is in four parts, one is a single image:

(Both of these should have the same apparent size. I don't know why they don't.)

One was more work than the other, but both are copied with a screen capture with equal ease. Images that are larger than the screen are harder to copy this way, but if I have to scroll to see your whole image, you have probably annoyed me enough to not bother looking anyway, which defeats the point of putting your images online in the first place.
