Hi Fellow Mac Users,
I wondered if someone could answer a question for me.
I recently recieved my new G4 Powerbook and am really enjoying exploring OS/X.
My question has to do with saving pictures from a web page from the internet to my hard drive.
On Windows XP all I would have to do to save a picture from a web page is to do a right click on the pic and click "save picture as".
What would I have to do to do the same in OS/X?
When I click on "File">"Save As" in Safari, I can only save the whole (HTML) page and not the picture alone.
Can anyone tell me how to save a picture alone, without the page?
Thanks!

You can Ctrl + Click on the image and hit Save Image As.

Or the quicker way is to just drag the image into the folder you want to save it to

Wow trpnmonkey41, thanks!
Both methods you mentioned worked fine. I was just looking for a way to save some pics to use as wallpapers and am happy now.
Thanks again.
Cheers!
