You may be right. Any interested person would have to try.But if your browser
can access them, then some utilities might work since they use
the browser as an proxy.

This depends, correct image links will be understood. This Utilities use 
the same logic as any browser to access the underlying image. If you
can click in your browser and the image opens then this utilities will
download them. You wil have to do some serious user agent detection
to prevent, this because most utilities can fake the browser agent.
If the link is hidden in some javascript it may not work. At least Httrack
tries to parse javascript.
