How to stop a person from being able to save and print pictures from the photo gallery, because this affects me from selling the pictures.

If I visit your gallery and view an image, I have that image in my browser's cache.  I can do whatever I want with it.  You cannot stop people from saving your images.  The best you can do is add a watermark to your images before uploading them.

If you don't want people to have your images, don't put them on the internet.

@awilson25: If you want to stop people from viewing the full-size photos, you can use the plugin "Full-Size Photos Access Control".  That way, people can view the thumbnails and intermediate size photos, decide if they want to purchase the full-size photos.  Something like that.  If you want to only allow the thumbnail view, but not the intermediate view, there's a FAQ entry about that: How can I let unregistered users see the thumbnails only, but not the actual pictures?.  Oh, and there's a FAQ entry for your original question too: How can I prevent users from saving (stealing) my pictures?.

@Vargha: It's fine for this thread to be in "miscellaneous" - this is *not* a permissions issue since there are no permissions related to downloading images versus viewing images.  The plugin I linked above along with the FAQ entry is the closest to such a permission.  In any case, a dev team member will move the thread if it needs to be moved.  You don't have to say it twice or yell the second time (using all CAPS).
