Hide Image Source using CSS Sprite Technique via PHP and Javascript

After thinking how silly it is to attempt to prevent people from downloading images by blocking the right-click functionality, I thought, “There must be a better way to do this!”

So, I came up with a technique to scramble the image and rearrange it using CSS so it looks normal.

I released it to Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/sprhide/

Go ahead, try to steal the image!

(Without using a screengrab, jerk!)

It could use a lot of cleaning up and there are plenty of possibilities for improvement.  I’m hoping the Open Source Community will pick it up!
