    In Internet Explorer, possibly only on Windows, when I click on an image to find out its URL address which I would right click and select "Properties" from the menu which a new window would reveal where the image actually comes from.

    How do I do this with OS X? Finding out the URL address of an image in Safari or Firefox?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Do you just want to look, or do you want to use the image location for something?

    In either Safari or Firefox you can right-click (or two-finger if you have such a trackpad or ctrl-click if you don't have two mouse buttons) and choose the option to copy the image URL.

    Firefox Mac also has the same properties option in the right click menu as it does on Windows.

    Aside. Note also that OS X actually keeps track fo the source of the file when you download something and do a Get Info, it'll show you where the file came from. Very handy!
