How to Download a Picture from the Internet?

Instructions:

  1. Click and hold (Mac) or right mouse click (PC) on of the images below until a dialog box appears.
  2. If you are using Internet Explorer, select “Download image to disk.” If you are using Netscape, select “Save this image as.”
  3. A box pops up asking you where you want to save the image to. Navigate to the folder in which you want to keep your images.
  4. Usually you’ll want to rename the image, giving it a name that will make sense to you a few months down the line. In the “Save image as” box, change the name of the picture to the name you have chosen. If you intend to use the image on a web page, make sure there are no spaces in the name you choose.
  5. If you are working on a Mac, also make sure that the name you choose ends in .jpg (if you are using a PC it will automatically insert this extension for you).
  6. Click on the “save” button. You now have an identical copy!

Tips:

  • This will work on most sites, but sometimes the pictures are protected and they can’t be saved.
  • If the picture is a thumbnail version (in other words, very small), click on it once to get the larger version before you save it.
  • If you want to send the picture via e-mail, save it in JPEG format, because this format downloads faster and takes up less space on your hard drive.
  • Most sites will tell you not to save their pictures for commercial use.
