Photo Theft

The online gallery for Lightroom works well for preventing downloading, "save as" etc.  But the pictures must be sized to show well online which makes screenshots just about as good as the "save as" function that you've disabled.  Is there a way to disable screen shots or is that a function of the OS and you cannot affect that in any way?  Even if you could affect (much lower) the size of the image that was screen shot that would help.  AI is here and all photos are at risk...

You cannot prevent screenshots. It is a complete lost battle trying to prevent people screenshotting your images. Nothing to do with Lightroom, just how browsers and operating systems work. If they can see them in reasonable quality, they can steal them. If they're happy with the fairly low res images from a screenshot there really is nothing you can do about it except for putting giant obnoxious watermarks on all your images which you don't want to do as it will put off paying clients.
