Copying pictures from my site

How would someone save pictures from a website once I've uploaded and published them to my page? I manage the website for a local preschool and my boss would like to give parents from last year a month to retrieve any photos we've uploaded that they might want before we clear the site for the new school year. However, we're not able to save photos from the website. The first one we clicked on said "save picture as", which was great, but none of the others have that option (only "save target as", which isn't helpful). Any hints would be appreciated!

Hello Elizabeth,

Right clicking an image should offer the save as option. If you can tell me your site and the page where there appears to be a problem I will look at it with you.

If you are using a gallery feature to display the photos that might explain the message you are seeing. Happy to check it out if you share the pages you are referring to.

It's password protected so I can't view it, but can you try to use the Picture Widget and see if that allows your visitors to be able to download your images from your website?

Oh sorry, I thought I removed my password... I think I'm just going to give up - it's not worth reloading all those pictures (between all the pages, I have thousands). Thank you for your help!
