Lightbulb super secure flash container! secure u'r artwork!

so what are suggestions to secure an artwork inside the flash clip?!

I know there are several programs that can retrieve fla out of .swf files, is there cure for that?

suppose I have a web page, selling artwork...the way to get max protection?

1) I think it would be good to disable print screen button!
2) A way to "blind" print screen programs...
3) Protect against import
4) disable ctrl+p keys
...

other suggestions? if any post here please, and yeh if u have any cure for the staff written above, please tell us!

visible watermarks over the image are basically the best way to do it

Um... What about creating a routine that checks if the keyboard is attached to your user's computer and send out the zapping current so that the keyboard won't work anymore???

Nope... As long as somebody can see, they are potentially theirs to take...
Not from Flash, not from HTML or whatsoever... At least that's what I know... Do you know ANY working environment that supports the secure system???

The only option... Hm... Post some low resolution artwork probably region by region??? Other than that??? Not a clue...

no

and anyone go enough with photoshop to remove a watermark would pretty much know other techniques of screen capture outside of the print screen button.

I say lose your fear of people capturing the artwork. Copyright it, if you see it anywhere big enough for it to be of financial concern to you send them a cease & desist. Otherwise you're probably safe. If you're still worried use lower resolution previews -- there's one thing a good photoshop user can't do, and that's turn the image back to it's original resolution. There are some damn fine pieces of scaling software out there, but there are limits to what interpolation can do.

You still can use other programs to capture it even if printScreen key is disabled...
What can you do about that??? I still stand by my solution... Zap the keyboard...
