    Question copies to Open Office from internet pictures do not print or save

    When I copy and paste from the internet to Open Office I get an internet address in a box which may show the picture later or may not. Either way, it will not save the picture. It apparently is only an address which can retrieve the picture from the internet later. It will not print out from Open Office. Is there a work around for this so I can save the picture as a file? I am not trying to steal anything, these are often advertisements or articles that contain how to pictures.

    In Firefox, if I had that problem I would try 'view image' from the context menu (right click) and then copy or if that failed, 'save image' and then import in office.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    In Firefox you can right click on the image and select "Copy Image".
    Using Internet Explorer it's right click and select "Copy".

    cheers, Paul
