I. NAME IT:
The SAVE/SAVEAS option will usually start with the FILE NAME
already highlighted. We will start there.
Change the FILE NAME at this point to a name that will help
you readily identify it later. Images on the Internet are often
only numbers or are coded by the designer for a particular project.
You can rename it at this point to a filename that is logical
Choose the place you want to save the image to from the SAVE
IN pull down menu. Netscape will usually first select the temporary
file in the Netscape folder as a default place to save but other
factors also affect the SAVE IN location. Because it is not
always easy to figure out where a program is going to save your
document or graphic, I advise students to save to a folder right
on the desktop called "downloads" so that it is easy
to find. (See separate instructions for creating
a folder on the desktop.)
The SAVE AS TYPE refers to the file extension of any piece of
data. It tells the computer what kind of information is being
saved. The File Type format was already determined by the designer
when the file was created so leave it as it is. It will either
be a .gif (Graphics Interchange
Format) or a .jpg (Joint
Group) file extension since those are the only
two types of files that the internet can recognize. The dot
separates the filename from the file extension.
DO IT: Tell the program to carry out your commands
with a LEFT CLICK on the SAVE button.
