The hardened user will of course be able to.

The safest way is watermark all pictures before publishing them, which is what all the stock photo sites do. even then if you know your way around PS you can remove a watermark with a few clicks.
a) You don't have to be hard core to do this; just disable JS in your browser while on the page and get the image direct via right click -- hence my false sense of security comment

Firefox: (it's this easy)
  1. In the address bar, type "about:config" (with no quotes), and press Enter.
  2. Click "I'll be careful, I promise"
  3. In the search bar, search for "javascript.enabled" (with no quotes).
  4. Right click the result named "javascript.enabled" and click "Toggle". JavaScript is now disabled.
b) I 100% agree that watermarking is your best defence other than not publishing
