Or you can do it for individual images:

Thanks be to Matt for this. Matt also gets props for the best Web page footer I’ve ever seen.

  1. I agree with the gist of what people are posting — don’t do what is suggested here. Love the image toolbar or hate it, what right to you have to turn it off? It’s not your browser.

  2. Deane, please, to get rid of that dorky toolbar, thank goodness, that thing is obnoxious. Besides, there are far worse things web masters do than get rid of a stupid tool bar… The evil Javascript abuse to stop right-clicking, that should be fought. This is nothing compared to that.
