Saving Images

       

Show online images using any computer by saving the images directly from the internet to your computer or onto a diskette. 
Please read the copyright information available in the link below.

Images on web pages have either .gif or .jpg endings.  You can save these images directly to the hard drive of you computer or onto a diskette for viewing without the internet.  

  

PC/Windows: Place the mouse arrow over the graphic and press the right mouse button. A contextual menu appears. Click on the Save Picture As (Internet Explorer) or Save Image As (Netscape Navigator) and a dialogue box appears. Choose where you would like to save the image (Floppy A:, Desktop, etc) and click Save.

View the image offline by locating where you saved it and double-clicking on the icon.  This should automatically prompt an image editor (MS Paint, Paintshop Pro,  Microsoft Picture It!, etc.) that is installed on your computer to open and display the picture.  

       
Macintosh: Click and hold for a few seconds until the dialogue box appears. You can select the option "Save this image as..." Choose your desired saving location (Ex. Floppy A:, Desktop, etc.), name the image and click Save.

View the image offline by locating where you saved it and double-clicking on the icon.  Choose to open this file using an image viewer or editor, such as AppleWorks or PictureViewer.  

    

In some cases, web developers have made it very difficult to download the images from their web page to your computer.  Even though, it may appear that you have successfully downloaded an image, it is always a good idea to view the image from the saved location to ensure that you may view it at a later time.

      
      
  • Save the book picture to the left onto the desktop of your computer.
