    And even if there was a way, it would be HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE UI.

    Well it is our browser and our Save As option and so it is our choice when we want to use it.

    If you want to hide images then don't put them on the web. By the time we see them in the broweser we already have a copy on our computer and so we don't even need the Save As option to get a copy of the image.

    Yes, and it's on the screen. Someone can press PrintScreen to copy it to the clipboard. If it's on the web you can't protect it.

    It is in whichever folder the broowser you are using downloads all the files to before displaying a web page. The folder used varies between browsers. With Internet Explorer it is usually "Temporary Internet Files"
