I saw this beautiful winter scene on a web page

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Flats/4610/snow.html

and I love the animated image and wanted to save it. I couldn't, I went to Page Info but didn't even see the image as a gif file although other images were there.

How do I save or download this image? It's so purty, I want to have it.
You can save the entire page. Go to File>Save As and then choose where you want to save it to.

D'Oh! Should have thought of that before.

It didn't work though, I didn't see the animated winter scene in the folder. :confused:

When I saved it to my desktop, it saved it as "Silent Night Holy Night.webarchive".

It isn't technically an animated image (like a GIF). It's a Java applet, which means it's an effect applied to an image on a web page. One of the more common (albeit tacky) is a ripple effect.

Not for me, clearly I'm doing something wrong. When you save the page, which of the four do you save it as?

Mr. Smith wooshhhhhhhhh that went way over my head. :D


ETA: I tried with Safari and managed to save as a web archive although since it isn't a .gif then it doesn't do me much good. I wanted to use it in my sig on another site. Ah well........

Yeah, it only opens it up as a web page. Wish I could help you more but dissecting code is way above my abilities:)

Sorry, I just meant that what you're seeing is an effect created by a program that you can't download. Unlike a GIF, which is self-contained.
