"Having right click turned off does not stop people/bots. When I am on sites it slows me down by 2 seconds, 1 click and I have reenabled it. Bots don’t load the script that disables it. You would want to turn off image hotlinking to reduce some…"

"Larry, Thank you for the assessment. I did at least try to optimize the website for mobile viewing. Wix has a separate editor for that. The grid display of photos should also automatically re-tile itself depending on the viewer's screen size…"
