    Sneaky Way To Hide Images

    I don't need any help with this. I found the following in someone's style sheet and thought it might be useful for some of you.

    The boy image on this page is impossible to right-click and download.

    He made this much too easy to find in the style sheet. I was thinking it would have been better to hide it several levels deep in sub style sheets that get loaded into the main style sheet. I think most thieves would give up before looking that deep for it.

    Also, naming the image "boy.png" is a dead giveaway. A name like "advertisement.png" would have been less obvious.

    Code:
    body:before {
        background: url("boy.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
        content: "";
        height: 300px;
        left: 0;
        position: absolute;
        top: 200px;
        width: 140px;
    }

    Another sneaky way to 'hide' an image is to cover it with a transparent SVG file, you can put rotated text in the SVG to add a phony watermark, so that even a screen capture won't save the unmarked images.
