I really don't know how to described it.

I personally use Opera for browsing but most customers use IE6+, of course.

Yesterday I saw on a customers PC a little icon or toolbar coming up while he hold the mouse cursor over a large image. This toy let the user choose to save or even print the current image under the mouse.

Is there a HTTP tag to prevent this? I don't know why but I do not have that unwanted feature on my IE but I think most people have.

Welcome aboard, orgaseo...

Here's the meta you're looking for:

<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no">

That takes care of things on the server side... On the client side, to disable the Image Toolbar in IEv6 select:

Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Enable Image Toolbar (under the Multimedia heading)

(I believe this "feature" is only available in IEv6.)

Thanks for the quick answer. Since I use Opera I forgot to think about that in IE ;)

I'd like to elaborate on this a bit, so we have a complete reference here for the many options and combinations that are available:

If you want to turn off Image Toolbar functions for individual pictures on a Web page, use the following <img> syntax for the picture:

<img border="0" src="filename" galleryimg="no">
-- or --
<img border="0" src="filename" galleryimg="false">

If you want to turn off Image Toolbar functions for all pictures on a Web page, add the following <meta> syntax to your Web page:

<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no">
-- or --
<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="false">

If you have turned off Image Toolbar functions for all pictures on a Web page, then you can enable them for individual pictures by setting the galleryimg attribute to "yes" or "true", using the following <img> syntax:

<img border="0" src="filename" galleryimg="yes">
-- or --
<img border="0" src="filename" galleryimg="true">

That's awesome! Never occurred to me that it could be removed. Man I love this place... :)

Wow. WOW! I knew you could disable the toolbar in the browser but never knew there was a per-image and/or per-page way to do it too.

Thanks tedster!

Yeah, and at least for me, most of the time there's no need to ask... lol

One more item that should be noted...

> <img border="0" src="filename" galleryimg="no">

Since the galleryimg attribute is a Microsoft/IE-only extension to the <img> element, this will break page validation if you use it (and care about that sort of thing).
