    I know its probably for the best, but i'm a bit miffed. Facebook has altered how you view photographs. They seem to be embedded within a flash slideshow and you no longer have the ability to right click on them, and chose to save them to your pc. My daughter used to post her pictures of the family on there and i'd download them that way. Now it will be frustrating as i'll be able to see them but not download them.
    I can see why its better, generally, to remove the ability to download - you shouldn't save photos that are not yours - but am still a bit put out.

  3. On the left below the photo there is a link saying "download this photo" when you look at a photo in the slideshow.
     
  4. If I right click I can save the image by clicking on "save as"

    Thats how I used to do it but that option isn't there any more on my pc.
     
  8. Hmm, still there on mine. Oh well, does the download button on the left work for you?

    Yeah, thanks - I hadn't noticed the 'dowload' button on the left as I was so fixated on not being able to right click and choose 'save image as'.
