Pictures from the web

Hi all,
Iv'e seen some nice pictures from some web sites.
I would like to copy them for my wall chart.
Is this posable?
Do I print then scan and go down that route if so dose the quallity suffer?

Firstly you have to be sure you are allowed to use them as they may be copyright.
If they aren't then in many cases you can right click on the image and left click on save target as and thats it really.

No Just cumes up settings and about flash player 9
Any ideas

You can't do what I said with a flash image. I thought it was just a stationary picture. If its a flash image I don't know if you can do it and if so how.

Thanks for your help it maybe just print the page , scan and then play with the image

You can save a flash movie but I'm not too sure how it's done. I would need to contact a friend who can do it. You also need an flv player in order to play the save flash movies.

MAGGX if you know what you are looking for you can just go to and search for an image of it, see option just above the box where you type and select Images. Mind you you have to be able to describe it and some images are rather differcult to describe. Worth a try though.

One way is to take a screenshot and crop the picture, the other way is try AltaVista, I find them very good at returning images, better than Google. click here

You can use a screen capture program, such as MWSnap3 - this enables you to cut out and save just about anything that appears on your screen. Get it from click here it's totally free.
