    Hello,

    sorry for this super newbie question. In windows, it is really simple, just right click and save image, in MacOS, how do I save a picture that is in a frame like this one?
    http://SRT202.deviantart.com/art/Falcon-34380714

    if I do in Safari: file-Save as, the web page is saved and not the picture, If I drag-drop, there is a flash interface that is not allowing me to duplicate the file.

    any ideas ?

    thanks!

    Try dragging and dropping with the command key pressed, worked fine for me. ;)

    You could also right-click and "Save Image As..." just like in Windows. Hold the Control key and click the image, or (if you're on a laptop) set up two-finger right clicking (where you put two fingers on the trackpad surface instead of one and click the button to right-click).

    i've been with my macbook for a week and i was baffled with the "no right click how do i save a picture" thing. i was playing in the settings and found the two finger click and i'm in heaven, it's a little strange the first few times but after that it's so much better than the standard right click, at least on a touchpad.
