BASICS – Saving pictures

This tutorial is targeted toward the computer newbie.

Many friends of mine have issues when it comes to saving pictures they have received in emails.

They would like to download the pictures to their own computer so this tutorial will show them/you one way to accomplish the task.

NOTE: CLICK IMAGES TO VIEW LARGER THEN CLICK YOUR BACK ARROW (top left of screen) TO RETURN TO THIS SITE AND CONTINUE.

SAVING A PICTURE FROM AN EMAIL
just above the email message window you’ll see a file name (thepicture.jpg) with a little image of a paper clip next to it. That is the ATTACHMENT (it will be the)PICTURE/VIDEO or OTHER FILE TYPE you want to download(save).

note: sometime you will see multiple files listed but hopefully you can distinguish which file is the pic you want
Click on the file name and a window will open showing the following options

You notice that at this point you can also open the file but that is just to view it.  It will only go to a temporary file to open but the file will remain in your in box only.

After clicking save a window will open similar to this one.  (Email services have different layouts but they are all pretty standard)

IMPORTANT that you place the file in a FOLDER where you can find it later and it’s a good idea to sometimes change the original filename of the download to something that YOU WILL REMEMBER.

If I clicked save at this point the picture would go to the folder on my computer named ‘THIS AND THAT’ but I wouldn’t find it later if I put it there so I’ll use the scroll bar next to the folder names to find a better home for the picture.

I hope this tutorial helps.  If you would like to see a tutorial on something else leave a comment and I’ll do my best to accomodate!
