The size, dimensions and types of images saved may be chosen, with options if the file size is unknown or if duplicate files are found. Images may be either saved from the current tab, left or right of the current tab or from all tabs. Also, all or selected links or image links in the current page can be opened in a new tab or multiple tabs. There are shortcut keys for some of the menu options.

Save Images can be accessed from either the Firefox Tools menu, the context menu (right click in page) or from a button placed on a toolbar (recommended – requires placement by user).

On a very sad note, one of our blogger friends, Cherlyn Cochrane has lost her Great Grandfather, Robert Phillip Ramey. Mr. Ramey was 91 years old and passed on December 5th. Please at your earliest convenience, stop by Cherlyn’s site and pay your respects to her. She wrote a poem, dedicated it to him and posted it today. She also gives a little bit of information about her great grandfather and the impact his life had on her family and the world. Thank you for showing Cherlyn kindness at this time of grieving.



A face we love is missing
a voice we know is still
a place is vacant in all our hearts,
that only you could fill.
Tears in our eyes,
they wont go away,
we wish you were here with us today.
We know you never ment to hurt us
or make us cry.
Our love for you will always stay,
if only things didn’t end this way.
But you’ve brought it to the final end,
we will always remember you as our friend.
We love you
Rest in paradise till we meet again.
