hiding image path
Is there a possible way in preventing someone from typing in the image path
and seeing my image in order to right click and save it on their computer?
Suggestions would be greatly appreciated

You will not stop anybody from saving any images unless they are in password protected directories, and not shown on any public pages. It is a myth that right click is needed, all that is needed for the user to get the image is to view it and it is now saved.

In a nutshell........er, no
Once they've viewed the image, it's available for them to right-click and save it, or there are other means of getting the image (out of their cache). Trying to hide the file-path to the image is like preventing somebody from finding your house by removing traffic lights.
You might try making it more difficult for them, but the truth of the matter is if you put the image on the internet then it's on the internet for them to take.
My suggestion: Watermark the image just in case you have to someday prove that it's your's, and be familiar with your rights under copyright law.
