Forums: Index > Help desk > I can't download useable images

I am trying to download my own photos that I added to Familypedia. When I use "save as" the files are not useable. What am I doing wrong? If I click on "original image" it works. If the image is small and there is no "original image" link, the resulting file is not useable. Can Anyone help me. Richard Arthur Norton (talk) 17:41, October 15, 2019 (UTC) -->

If I go to File:Selma Louise Freudenberg injured sledding on February 6, 1937.jpg, right click on the link, and choose "Save link as ..." I seem to get a viewable JPEG file. Which ones are not working for you? What do you mean by "not useable" (i.e. do you get an error message?). Thurstan (talk) 20:17, October 15, 2019 (UTC)
On the other hand, it seems that not all links are created equal: my usable download was from the link under the image on its own page. If I right-click the link in my previous comment, it claims to save a JPEG file, but it is really some sort of HTML file.
If you nominate an example, I will check further. Thurstan (talk) 20:25, October 15, 2019 (UTC)
