Is there a script out there that will disable the Print Screen button on a keyboard? This is kind of like the Right-click disable script.

I want to keep things on my site private, more than just images, but the entire look and content on my site.

Any advice or help is appreciated.

Well, even if you could do it - they could always disable javascript, and then grab your images.  I think the more effective way of doing this would be watermarking them.  Might effect the look of the graphic or photo, but that way would make it a little harder to steal it without giving you some sort of credit for it.

Mitch is right. But even if users didn't disable JavaScript to circumvent something like right clicking, images are often found in the browser cache and retrievable there. You said you want to keep the entire look and content on your site private, well I'm afraid that's not possible. If it can be seen in a browser, it can be copied.

For images, you may consider watermarking the images (such as with your url), that way even if someone does download, they have to work at removing the watermark (a lot of poeple wont go through the hassle), or if by chance they do post your images elsewhere, then the images have your url on them, so its almost like free advertising.

Unfortunantly, the only way you can absolutely block this, would make your site unviewable by anyone.

Probably not the best solution to implement long-term.
