Right Click Disabled

9 posts in this topic

hi guys,

How would you go about saving an image or downloading an image if the right click has been disabled? I am on a Mac with Mountain Lion.x

On a Mac you need to Control-Click, ie hold down the Control key whilst clicking the mouse

View the "Source" code of the page.

Identify the URL of the image.

Copy and paste the URL into your browser.

Then the image should appear in your browser with no protection.

Well that's the Windows & IE way.

If you use Firefox, there is an add-on called "Right to Click" which knifes straight through the problem, which I assume you've encountered on the purple site?

Whether there is a Mac version of Firefox and/or Right to Click, I'm afraid I don't know!

The simplest thing is to go into Firefox preferences and disable javascript temporarily. It is a snippet of javascript code on the website that intercepts the right-click and prevents it from working.

Some Flash-based photo galleries don't permit a right-click even with javascript disabled. For those, the easy solution is to use the Mac's "Grab" app (it's not well known but yes, you do have it) to capture the photo on your screen. The resulting capture can be saved on your system and works just fine with tineye or google image. I've discovered quite a few dodgy photos that way.

I've used Paint Shop Pros capture facility with good effect.

Do you mean Apple-Shift-3 ?

That captures the entire screen. Apple-shift-4 brings up a different mouse cursor and lets you draw a rectangle around the bit you want to capture, much better for a single photo.

Alternatively, you can go to Applications -> Utilities -> Grab if you want more control and a preview of your capture before saving it.

Ha! never knew that one (been using Macs for 22 years)
