Unable downloading user pics

Is there any way to set certain galleries or photos so that others can't download them? I have some professional photographer friends who would like to keep their pictures but allow users to view them before purchasing or downloading. I couldn't find this information anywhere on your features page. If you do not, would you consider adding this feature in?

Additional features include: Admin section for IPS which groups options for protecting images into one area, allows for the directory for image storage to be changed (and moves files to new location), edit/creation of .htaccess files and configuration of the watermark.php script.
I cannot comment as to the effectiveness or usability as I have not needed to use any of the IPS features yet. But they have existed since v5.1!

yes you can block right click in the program and also using IPS move the pictures underneath the webroot making it impossible for users to access them directly
