Hello Hoddi!

You will need to play around with some examples provided by people.

Another way is to put watermark on your images. You can enable watermark in component options. At least images will be protected visually.

Best regards,
Dmitry

Hello Hoddi,
Thanks for your feedback, we are glad you liked our extension :-)
Well, as concerning your question.
The web browser displays various elements including images. In most cases, you can copy/paste text and save images. What methods can be used to protect images?

1. Use watermark. You can enable watermark generation in NorrCompetition and there will not be a reason for somebody to take images that come with the watermark. Read more about this feature in the documentation .

2. Add custom javascript snippet to your Joomla template that blocks mouse right button clicking. There are a lot of solutions, so you can take any of them. For instance, this one: https://www.aspsnippets.com/Articles/Disable-restrict-Mouse-Right-Click-using-JavaScript-and-jQuery.aspx

3. Display image as CSS background. To get such result a deep customization of NorrCompetition is required.

And, of course, do not forget the interested person just can capture the screen in a few clicks using a special utility or just click on Ctrl+Cmd+4 in MacOS.

So, the easiest way is N1 or N2.
