There are several ways to download Pictures, Video and Audio files and the method used will depend on the source and type of file your wanting to download. Also if the file is protected. I will show you several ways to download just about anything you want from the Internet.
Most pictures can be downloaded just by RIGHT Clicking on the Photo and select SAVE IMAGE AS from the pop up menu.
For this example, I will use the Digital Blasphemy web site, as they have a wonderful collection of pictures.
After you click on Save Image, this window will open. Select a location to save the file in and give the file a name you can understand, then Click on Save.
Sometimes you will come across pictures that can not be saved in this manner. If that is the case then you can always use the built in Snipping Tool. Windows Vista, 7 and 8 all have the Snipping Tool application. Just go to the Start menu and search for Snipping Tool and open it.
When you open Snipping Tool the screen will Grey Out. Just drag your Mouse over the bit you want to copy starting in the upper left corner and drag to the bottom right corner. When you release the mouse button a Window will open allowing you to save the picture.
If your careful with the mouse, you can crop out the bits you don't want:
