be realistic

It's not really so complicated. You want to reduce the resolution to something small. There's is a wide choice. Decide for yourself how far you want to go. If you feel it's a great image that you'd hate to see somebody steal, reduce it to a very small size.

The other option, that can be used at the same time, is to put a copyright message across the image.

You can also reduce the .jpg quality to something very low. Say 60%. Or 50%. That will make it even worse if anybody tries to manipulate the image.

Just assume that whatever you do put out there will be stolen. There's no magic answer, where you put high resolution images out there, with no copyright message across the center of the image, and they don't get stolen.
