I am just a dummy. But how are you going to stop the Win7 snipping tool from a .htaccess?
I have seen a site site that have stopped the right click but you could still save the photo.
Is the headache worth it?
I am wanting to add some http.conf rules to block users from downloading or ripping website content/images.
Now my host does not allow editing http.conf because it's a shared hosting plan BUT they said I can do it via .htaccess - so any ideas how to add them?
I tried adding the lines without any special markup but that rendered internal server error.
do I have to wrap the code in certain tags? or tweak it to work in .htaccess?
Help is appreciated
.htaccess can be used to stop the directory listing showing up in a browser or to detect hotlinking from another website. But once an image is displayed in a browser, it is on the visitors computer.
If you are referring to preventing hotlinking to images, there are several ways to do this using the .htaccess file. This doesn't prevent anyone from manually downloading an image with a right click.

Get nasty with those who would hotlink to your images and download pages.
I check my site stats all the time, plus do searches on certain pages and images.
I find a site using my images and linking to certain pages?
Then I get nasty!
Oh, this is really fun to do to those who post on forums, using your direct links to images.
I rename the affected images and change the names on my site.
Then the original image name?
I hunt for shall we say some nasty images and put them in.
Same with certain pages.
Rename the pages.
The original named page?
A new page with again, some nasty stuff!
But then, maybe it is just me that loves to do this.
