    Question Get image from website

    I edit a local parish magazine. A local organisation has asked me to publish an article, and to use the organisation's website's logo in the article.

    Normally, when I need an image from a website, I right-click the image and select "Save Image As…" (see screen-shot).

    However, on this website, the right-click menu gives me no way to access the image (screen-shot below).

    Unusual right-click menu.png

    I have tried everything I can think of, including looking at the HTML and CSS code. I cannot figure out where the image comes from.

    I've tried both Firefox and Chromium.

    Is there a simple or straightforward way to get the image?

    Notes:

    • I have been given permission to access the image (no copyright violation).
    • Getting hold of the web developer in time for publication may be difficult, but I shall try.

    What is the link ?

    However try using copy link location, then paste that into address bar which should show only the image, then try saving that image ? or save link as and see if it it saves as an image

    And are scripts blocked ?

    If the image is smaller than your screen just take a screenshot then crop the image as required.

    The image is within a link to the main website, so I just get the website's URL.

    I don't think so, but I have tried using the RightToClick add-on to no avail.

    I tried an experiment. I saved the website to disk (Firefox > File > Save Page As > Web Page, complete). I disabled Internet access; cleared Chromium's cache; and loaded the website from the disk. The logo still appeared, yet I cannot find it anywhere in the folder where I downloaded it. I am so confused!

    I thought of that, but I need the image in the highest resolution for printing the magazine. But I shall do this if everything else fails.

    so which image is it you want ?

    I can save them all ?

    I presume you want this one ? http://imagebin.org/239191

    or do you mean the hand in the upper corner which is part of the larger image ?

    If you're talking about the "Kennington Health Centre" logo at the top of the page with the drop-shadow, that's not an image, it's normal text with some clever CSS for the shadow (if you want proof, select part of the words and copy into a text editor). If that's the logo you need then a screenshot is in order, as already suggested.

    That's the one! Well, that explains everything. I've wasted about an hour on this, LOL.

    Oh well. Thank you for the reply. I shall do a screen-shot as you say, or try to duplicate the text in the magazine.

    Thanks again for everyone's help!

    The coiled stethoscope saved normally; to get the stethoscope held in the hand use http://www.igpedit.co.uk/designs/1/img6.png.
    I'm assuming you're using Firefox. Just open it in safe mode. I think one of your extensions may be cause of the confusion.

    Sorry! Saw what you just posted!

    Re: Get image from website

    What confused me and made me think that it was an image, not text, was that if I "grab" the word, the entire area moves as if it were an image. Highlighting individual letters requires that I start from further to the left than usual.

    See the screen-shot, where I am in the middle of moving what I thought of as an image.

    EDIT: How cool—the font family is Ubuntu!

    If you want to try and recreate the text (I'd use Inkscape) then it actually uses the 'Ubuntu' font. What a coincidence
