Protect Photos On Your WordPress Blog

PhotoProtect is a free WordPress plugin. It adds an invisible layer on top of post images. When a visitor tries to save the picture, she gets an empty one instead of your original picture.

  • The plugin is extremely small and fast. It doesn’t have any external dependencies. It won’t bring jQuery or React onto your pages.
  • It supports responsive themes. The Photo Protect plugin adds invisible layer only when the browser finished laying out the page.
  • The plugin works in all modern browsers. It correctly works on smartphones too.
  • Protects post and featured images. Unfortunately, lightboxes and dynamic galleries aren’t supported.
