I have a source for photos, but they require that the photo has to be prevented from download. How can I do this in SBI?

You can't no matter where you host. You can prevent right click download image by image, but you can't prevent someone from "saving" the page or even downloading the entire site where the images would download too.

If they are happy with just preventing the "right click download" then, yes you can do that. I don't recommend it however as it is bad usability and irritating to your visitors.

Here are some threads that go into detail on how and alternatives:

All my best,

Realistically, it's a losing battle. The best way I've found to stop it is to make sure I have a link to my copyright info in the footer of every page, and also put a watermark on the image. It's a tough one, that's for sure.

I went after one site that had pilfered a whole lot of my images, and the response was, what are you getting so excited over? It's only images. I was stunned. The nerve. But the best thing is to try and stay on top of it, and slam them good with a DMCA report when you find them. I'm nice once, then the gloves come off. Who has time for this nonsense?
