Save photos from Google Search images to desktop
To download an image on the desktop, all you need to do is choose your image, click on an option and your photo will be saved to your computer.
To do that, first launch your favorite web browser on your computer and open Google Image Search. There, find the photo you want to save on your machine.
On the search results page, open the photo you want to download.
Right-click on your photo and choose “Save Picture As” from the menu that opens.
Your browser opens your computer’s standard “Save As” window. Here, select a folder to save your photo to, type the name of your photo in the “File name” field and click “Save”.
And you have successfully downloaded your favorite photo from your image search results. If you’re not sure where exactly the image file went, check your Downloads folder.
If your downloaded file is low resolution, you can try downloading that image directly from the source site. To do this, on the Image Search results page, click the link below the photo and not the photo to be taken to the photo site. Right click on the image there and choose ‘Save image as’.
