    Question html5 - click to download

    Hi all,

    how do I perform "click to download" in html5 ?
    Let's say, I got .jpg file at web hosting.
    Usually when someone clicks on http://site.com/img/file.jpg then this file displays in browser.
    My need is to avoid displaying of file but to forse download this file.
    How do I perform it?
    Is it possible at all?

    A example of html5 download would be saving a image created client side in a canvas element, lat time i looked into that i think there was browser support issues
