Coppermine Anti-Copy Mod

Not a plugin sorry :( I didn’t feel like reading up on how to make one :P It’s close enough to one however, you only directly modify two files. The rest is added on. Yes, yes, now what am I talking about?

If you visit the Gallery, you will notice that right-clicking any image will not allow you to save it. You end up with a blank image or worse… a VIRUS (just kidding :P). Along the way, each image has an automated caption, that even if you did manage to copy it, all would know you downloaded it from

Some may notice I’ve already had this feature on my site for some time. I just never got around to cleaning up the code (I want to remain presentable thank you! :P ) and packing it up into something I can upload. It’s also taken a while to get the bugs out (unlike PHP, Wordpress, Java, or any other language I know, I can’t find a code reference for Coppermine!! :( )

Anyways, enough talk… here’s the full list of features! :D

- Basic Protection: Overlay a blank image over all pictures (prevent right-click copying)

- Hiding Links: Pass all picture addresses through an image-generating file:
–* Requires random code from server to generate an image.
—-* Random code generated from timestamp + offset from any resource of your choosing
–* Optional caption on generated images.
–* Optional resizing on the fly.
–* Image-generator and its features usable independently from mod and gallery (see CUSTOMIZATION)

- For those with Apache: Deny access to files
–* Deny direct access to all image files (specify types in .htaccess file)
–* Forward those who find the images to a page of your choice.
–* Allow you to rename the image-generating file to any name and extension.

- Copying Permissions: Specify specific users and groups to allow copying
–* Enter the user id # or group name into the Gallery Description or Album Password Hint
–* Seperate with commas, no spaces (unless part of group name)
–* Place a negative in front to deny. ex -1, -banned
–* Denying has priority over allowing.
–* Optional removal of caption for those allowed to copy, see CUSTOMIZATION

- Extra features I added to my own gallery and am too lazy to undo:
–* Categories with no visible albums (to the user) and no thumbnail/description become hidden from view.
–* Videos default to 640×480 dimensions
–* Non-image files can now use custom intermediate images if uploaded (default normal_ prefix)

DOWNLOAD! And enjoy :D
