Hi

I'm planning to develop my WEbsite and have already taken Hosting Account.

I need advice on following :

1. Which tool is best : Wordpress or any other tool
2. I want to make sure that no one should be able to right click to save/copy/print the contents of my website. It is possible in Wordpress.
3. Which theme is best for such a work.

Regards

1. WordPress is versatile so I'd use that (two of my sites are full WP).

2. There are no-right click plugin for WP but also scripts and such but someone can always screenshot your image. I would suggest using watermarks to deter the would-be image thieves.

3. Themes are endless...work with what you like. While there are so many free ones out there I do like paying for ones on Themeforest as you have better support but also more features. Again if you learn WP enough you maybe able to create your own templates and such.

Good luck :)

Maybe I'm biased but I have to agree with 'Aki78'...WordPress. I've been using WP fr years on all of the sites I maintain (7 so far).

The only way to protect your photos online is to stop posting your photos online. Use a watermark if your afraid about theft.

WP is great and relatively easy to figure out. Disabling right click won't do anything useful, just load photos with a watermark (or not) and in low resolution so nobody can print a poster. Other than that, anything you post online can and will be stolen if it's any good. Watermarks are easy to remove too unless they are huge or cover some busy/important part of the image, which then makes the image ugly. If you want to avoid image theft, you simply can't post images online. Personally I don't worry about it.
I use smugmug and Flickr for sharing images, WP I'd use more for a blog like site with images and text, not just a gallery
