How do I copy a picture from the web into my picture folder so as I canb print them out later, thanking you in advance.February 6, 2009 at 3:22 am #31123
Hi Patrica … the first thing to check for is a 'Copyright' on any photo or image you're thinking of downloading to your own computer. But that said …To download images from the net:Right-click anywhere within the image itself (this will cause a new wee box to arrive on the screen) > select Save Image As (This will cause another box called 'Save Image' to open on the screen, this one for you to decide on where you want the image saved and the name you wish it saved under)Within this 'Save Image' box ... there's a wee selection area towards the top that says 'Save in' ... picking 'My Documents' will help you know where to find it later, if you don't already have a special folder for images downloaded from the internet.And in this same box, towards the bottom should be the words File name ... this allows one to rename the image so it's easier to find later within one's computer.Click SaveFebruary 6, 2009 at 3:26 am #31124
In most cases you can simply right click on the image you want, and select 'save as'. You'll then get the chance to browse to any folder you want to save it in, and rename it too if desired.In some cases, however, you'll find that the right click option has been disabled,or the image has been protected in some other way, like a transparent image that has been overlayed over the one you want, or an image that is composed of many pieces.The easiest way to copy these images is by using Mozilla Firefox. In Firefox, select from the menu bar.. tools>page info and select the Media option on the top of the page that comes up. You'll see a list of all media on that page, including flash movies etc too! Just go through the list, clicking on each item that looks like it may be the one you want, and you will see a preview of that item on the bottom. Select 'save as', browse to the folder you want to save it in, rename it if desired and save.Of course, the images were protected in the first place because someone didnt want you to have them. Its up to you to choose your moral standpoint on that one.February 6, 2009 at 3:40 am #31125
Of course, an even easier way of saving unprotected pictures is to simply click and drag them from the webpage straight onto your desktop.February 6, 2009 at 4:50 am #31126

Question Dak,and I am sure Patrica would be asking the same thing.1 Why fill up the Desktop, with Images?2 How to put Images on the Desktop,with Desktop,not Visable.?3 How is it a benefit,when they would have to be moved,to be saved in Documents.?Hi Patrica.To save to your Desktop,one way is to move the side of the Web Page across, and slide the image on to your Desktop,that way.Hope this helps.February 6, 2009 at 5:34 am #31127
If you are for instance visiting a photo website, and collecting many images, it will save you a lot of time to simply drag them onto the desktop as you find them and then move them to your pictures later.I dont view pages in fullscreen so its easy for me to drag things onto the desktop. Of course you will need to reduce the size of your window to be able to see the desktop.If you really wanted to get fancy, all you have to do is open my pictures, and resize both the my pictures folder and the window you are getting the pictures from, so that you have them both sharing the screen. Then you can drag them straight into my pictures instead.February 6, 2009 at 5:45 am #31128

That's an excellent idea,and a quick alternative.I do that when I am burning Audio and Data,CD's.And didn't think of this method,for saving Images.Thanks Dak.February 6, 2009 at 7:37 am #31129
