yep, done that before LOL some websites catch on and change it so you can save there images also i do it by opening page in front page editor and save the pic from there, Way easyer!!!
and this one was good because they put that GM thing in the top left so i was able to edit it out in about 5 seconds LMAO

saw one not too long ago that also had view source disabled. save as>web page complete. rightclick from desktop>edit.

give it a break already.and those are just from using what IE offers. go outside IE and the world opens.

Even electronically challeged people like me figure a way around it. I just save whole page, then take out what I want, then delete the rest .....God I love that red car Pete.
