If you do that, users will not be able to save it using right-click so some small protection there is, but they always will be able to print-screen.... ... but that's much more work to do.... some people will not be able to run some sort of bots to download tons of images automatically (as I did one time:-) so my conclusion: + embeding images in flash gives you some protection. - some people without flash pluggin will not be able to see them + you may play with some effects (I can imagin some shapes (lines, dots, oldmovies-type-of-effect?) moving across the image so it will be much more difficult to use it by print-screening).... + you can make some slide shows with image preloaders etc. - Rebol/flash dialect is quite slow while converting bitslossless images (I don't have /Pro to play with some libraries support) it's usefull only with basic JPGs - it's quite simple to restore the image using some type of SWF disassembler)
