Thank you Paul for your very precise and complete answer. :)

The hyperlink protection rule in the .htaccess file
I will try this (A little script) :

Options +FollowSymlinks RewriteEngine on # Hotlinks management of images # Here we return a bogus image in the formatGIF RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://[a-z0-9]*\.blogger\.com [NC,OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://[a-z0-9]*\.oldiblog\.com [NC,OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://[a-z0-9]*\.free\.fr [NC,OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://[a-z0-9]*\.doctissimo\.fr [NC] RewriteRule .*\.(jpg)$ http://www.votre-site.com/path/Photo-Bottle.gif [NC,R,L]

Hi,
Not possible
a) Google index all content, whatever you want or not.
b) Beside anyway can download any image if he can use Code Inspector, it take 10sec more than in classic method
c) According to legal rules you don't have obligation to protect images from downloading , read Terms of use from iStock....

The only practical method are
Add watermark for each photo AND add hot-link protection rule inside .htaccess file
AND add price list inside your website for illegal image use, if those images belong to you only.
