ok i'm trying to download some images from the net.

1. I click on a picture
2. The pic loads in a a new window and is very large, its bigger then my 17 inch screen, and the scroll bars appear vertically and horizontally.
3. I right click and save picture to desktop.
4. When i open up the picture from desktop (the saved picture), the image is about half the size of it was when it loaded up. I want to be able to download the picture as it appears from this link below, but i always get a smaller file size when i "right click save to desktop" or go file save as.

I'm using Safari as my browser.


How can i save this picture as it appears? (and not smaller) Screen Grab won't work cuz the pic is bigger then my desktop.

Are you sure whatever program you are opening it in isn't just auto resizing it to be smaller? Have you tried increasing it's size or opening it up in a program that will give you it's actual dimensions?

Preview will automatically resize the image to fit the screen, it does not lower the quality.

yes i have tried increasing the size, but there is considerable loss in quality, can any body try downloading the above picture, and opening it up so its the same size?

When I downloaded it and opened it in Preview, it was fairly large on my 20" screen.

The image measures 27.5cm X 25.5cm.

Excuse the mix of metric and imperial.....

All you have to do is drag the picture from Safari to your desktop.
I was able to do so and the picture retained its 1800 x 1200 size.
