    Death to the "Print Screen" button! Just kidding. Actually, I think Print Screen is a pretty clever little gadget.

    The main point to this is that a thief will steal your images no matter what you do to prevent it.

    The choices are to either 1. give your images away willingly, 2. Try your dangdest to outsmart the crafty image-thiefs, to which they will always prevail, or 3. give your visitors a beautiful representation of your work with a watermark that visibly "scars" it... in effect making it "not worth" stealing, but worth buying the unmarked image to an honest person.

    Again, though, what is really the use trying to out-fox a dishonest person? It's like putting bars on your windows to keep the bad-guys out, but when the home catches on fire, you're the one who's hurting.
