Hit printscreen on your keyboard and paste them into photoshop and save them that way :).

Not the best way but one of the easier ways ;-).

Bruddah Dezza should be able to get you through this, look at the keys top right of the keyboard, prt Scr is next to scroll lock and pause/ break on mine.

If I want to save files in Photoshop I do the following

Click File
Scroll down to Save as
Brings up the screen to save name the file
On the format menu I choose GIF or JPG
Click Save

In my photoshop it doesn''t allow you to save the images by right clicking them.

hopefully that helps :D

The second way should work

Though if your doing the first way you will need to copy the file back into photoshop and then save it using the second way mentioned :).

Right click on the image using your mouse, then it should say ' save as' on the list which opens that, select that option then you can go from there, probably ignore the print screen key for the moment, is that right Dezza?

If they are already opened in photoshop I don''t think it allows you to the right-click thing - it doesn''t on mine I have to save it through the file however if it is on a website/email you can print screen or right-click it open it into photoshop and save.

I do not know, it would not let me double right click.

Type: Compressed (Zipped) Folder - Does it tell you anything?

Can you single right click on the image and choose "properties"? If so, this should show you the file extension name... My FI said that he needs to know what type of the file the actual images are in order to help you to save them...

the compressed (Zipped) folder just means that you need to unzip it with Winzip in order for you to view the images since the attachment are pretty big files.... But i guess you didn''t need to do that to view them... hmmm...

Actually FI said that program is the viewer… so that''s why right click wont work....

he suggest to try this...

open the file in whatever file its default to open then press ALT+printscreen… then open Paint then click on Edit -> Paste… Resize the image to whatever you like then save it

Grapegravity, thanks for trying!

Theres no file shown on this photoshop page to click on. At the top left hand corner of the photoshop page is a red slanted sort of square, when I clicked on it, it has only 3 functions: restore, minimize and close Alt + F4 Thats it, nothing else!

Ok try this:

1) have the picture you want centered on your screen so it is the size you want it

2) press the print screen button

3) Open microsoft paint (start->all programs->accessories->paint)

4) in microsoft paint click the edit tab and select paste from the drop down menu
(if the paste option isn''t highlighted, go to your image and click the printscreen again)

5) it may ask you to resize if the picture is bigger than the initial screen size -> click ok

6) your screen capture will appear in paint

7)use the square cut tool to cut out the image you want

8) open another instance of paint and paste the cut out image

9) save the cut out image as you like.

that''s it :)

Don't open the file from your email. Instead, right click on it IN THE EMAIL first - then you can save it to your desktop.

From there, go to your desktop, right click on the zip file, and choose "extract." If you don't have a program to extract them with, you will need to download a program, but the Adobe one should work for you. Then you can save them on your computer anywhere you like!


Whoops, Karl beat me to it lol.
