    Hello,

    Is there a "Save Image As..." shortcut key on the mac so that I don't have to use the standard Ctrl/Scroll/Click of the context menu?

    Thanks,

    If you are using something like preview or most any other app you can just hold Cmd + Shift + S, and it will do a save as. If you are using Safari, you can just right click and choose "save as…". Hope I understood your question right. :)

    Won't work. You need the mouse position to determine which image you want to download, which is why it's a context menu on the right mouse click.

    Forgot to clarify.
    I'm on a website that is done in Flash and they have a Flash photo window that pops up to let you view the photos in a particular album.
    However, since these photos are within a Flash console, I'm not able to drag-n-drop the photos I want on to my desktop.
    While I can do the "Ctrl/Save Image As..." method, if I want to save more than a couple of pictures (over time that is, not in one shot), I'd love to be able to assign a string of keys (as a shortcut) to save the picture in the current window (therefore the mouse wouldn't have to be exactly over the picture in question, it would just save whatever picture is in the current window).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Justin

    Same story. There's no way for a shortcut key to know where a particular picture is located on a web page. That's why you have to specify with the mouse exactly what you want to save. A web page, even if it just has one picture on it, usually has other elements that could be saved. You won't find a shortcut key to do what you want, especially with a flash page.
