    Almost every SE under the sun gives you the option to search for images on the web. As a webmaster, this can be a blessing and a curse.
    First of all, it is a curse when it comes to people stealing your image content. But then, who are we to throw the first stone?
    Then comes the quality of traffic angle. Normally, people looking for an image on the web are looking only for the image and won’t spend any more time on your site.
    The fact that your site is most often displayed in a frame below a top “navigation” frame that gives the surfer all the options he needs to display your image in full size doesn’t help. Using that frame, the user does not even have to interact with your site at all.
    On the other hand, having your site display prominently in the image searches can give you some nice traffic

    In general I set images in the backgound of div tags. :( So my sites are not really the paradise for image thiefs:D
