Be aware that there is no FTP access to and no blogger installed plugin capability on WordPress.com blogs. There is no upgrade you can purchase that provides FTP access and the ability to install plugins and or any third party themes into any WordPress.com blog.
If you want FTP access and want to install plugins and/or or third party themes then you will have to hire a web host and set up your own WordPress.org install. Here’s a link to a helpful comparison WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
Setting that aside, If you use the Duotone theme on your WordPress.com blog then you will find right click is disabled on that theme. It’s not available on any other themes here and will not become available because it creates a false sense of security. In fact, anyone can find instructions on the internet and get around that tactic quickly and easily.
What’s best is:
- not posting images online that you are worried about being stolen;
- posting only compressed low resolution 72 DPI images; and
- watermarking any images you do post into your blog.
