How to Share Photos That Can't Be Saved

Save

It used to be that every photo on the web could be right-clicked on and then downloaded to anyone's computer. Nowadays, however, web design programming has gotten advanced enough that the right-click and download feature can be disabled by the designer if he so chooses. If you found a photo that you want to share but the Webpage won't let you, there is a simple workaround to this annoyance.

Take a Screen-shot of the Photo

  • Go to the webpage with the photo you want and center it on your screen so the entire image is visible.

  • Press the "Alt" and "Print Screen" buttons on your keyboard at the same time. If you're using the PicPick image editor, this is not necessary yet.

  • Go to the Start menu, click "All Programs," and then open your image editing software, such as Microsoft Paint (included with Microsoft operating systems), Irfanview (a free image editor) or PicPick (another free image editor).

Microsoft Paint

  • Press the "Paste" button in the top menu. A perfect screenshot of your entire Web browser window, including the photo, will now appear in Paint's program window.

  • Click on the "Select" tool button and then click and drag to select the entire image.

  • Click "Crop" in the top menu to crop the screenshot so it only includes the photo you want to share.

  • Click the "Save" button to save the photo to your computer. You can now go to the social networking site or other site of your choice and share it as desired.

Irfanview

  • Click the "Paste" button in the top menu bar. Your screen shot will now appear in the Irfanview program window.

  • Click and drag to select the entire photo that you want to share and then press "Ctrl" and "Y" on your keyboard to crop the image to your selection.

  • Click the "Save As" button in the menu bar and save the photo to the desired location on your hard drive. You can now go to the social networking site or other site of your choice and share it.

PicPick

  • Click on the PicPick "Menu" button and select "Capture Active Window."

  • Press the "Alt" and "Print Screen" buttons on your keyboard simultaneously. The screen shot will automatically appear in the PicPick program window.

  • Click on the "Select" tool in the menu bar, click and drag to select the photo you want, and then click the "Crop" button to crop the image to the selected area.

  • Click on the "Menu" button again, select "Save," and then save it to your computer. You can now share the photo as desired.
