View Full Version : Advice needed from someone with computer know-how

Im starting to try and find galleries in the area to display my photographs and I would like to put maybe a dozen of my photos on a cd to leave at said places. My question is, is it possible to make my cds so the pics can only be viewed and not copied, printed, or saved to another computer? In other words, I want these photos to stay on the cd, and thats it. Possible?

Anything put onto a CD can be uploaded ot anohter compuer and therefore copied and such. I dont know of anyway to "copyright" CD's so this doesnt happen.

You might be able to copy-protect a PDF file, if you have the full version of Acrobat. As for image files, I'm not aware of a way to protect them.

The only thing I could think of would be to get a USB flash/thumb drive with a security program included, I don't have any experiance with them but I imagine that could prevent things from being copied. You may want to ask around, though it'd definitely be more costly than a CD...
