Google Image Search - Download Original Image

December 8, 2020 at 05:34:06
Specs: Windows 7 Service Pack 2, 2.2/ 4gb
When Google Image Search Results are loaded on screen, right clicking on an image only saves a scaled down version of that image not one with the dimensions with which the image is tagged. You have to fire up the google viewer to be able to save the original image at its full dimensions. This is a real drag. Does anyone know of a script (preferably), an add-on or software which will download the images at full size? I've tried a number of downloaders promising to deliver. But they just come up with the scaled down version and not the full-sized image. Any help appreciated.

Click on the image in the search results to display on the right panel, then right click on new image & select "view image". You can then right click on the enlarged image & select "save image as..."

Another way would be to right click on the image in the search results, select "open in new tab", then right click on it & select "view image". You can then right click & save the image from there.

If you need 100's of images I can see that this might be a "chore", but if just a few, I don't see it being a problem unless you equate clicking a mouse button as being "work".

If you're using, or are willing to use, IE, you might try trolling the cache. I dunno about other browsers, where/how they store their cache material, but IE does it straightforward (at least, the version I'm running, which is out of date - all the sites bitch about it). Once you open a picture full-size, it is in the cache full-size, and finding it is relatively easy.

Hi, nbrane, tried IE but get message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". Possibly something to do with IE now being deprecated. Pity there doesn't appear to be a script or some third party software available..
