There are ways of chopping pictures up into small segments so that they
appear normally on your web page, but when anyone tries to copy them all
they get is a small segment. There is also expensive software available
which will allow you to digitally mark the photo so that if it surfaces
somewhere else in the future it can be positively identified as yours.
However, if you want to display the photograph on a web page it will be
copied by anyone who is interested. If the photo is yours you can claim it
under copyright by placing a suitable statement to that effect on the web
page. Most people will not knowingly use for commercial gain anothers work,
but in the world we live in there are no guarantees.
Remember - if you are viewing a photograph on a web page your computer has
already copied it and the photograph is residing in your internet temporary
save it, you will only be fooling yourself that someone else has not
retrieved your photo. If you know how to get to your Internet Temporary
files, anything you have viewed is there and can be copied to some other
folder on your computer.
That is the explanation, sadly the short answer is "No."
