If you prefer to not save the image you want to print on your own computer, you can print it directly from your browser window. Don't worry about all those pesky ads and other unwanted items on the page, in most instances, ​you can print only the picture you desire. The way you do this may vary depending on your browser and computer.

Try these methods:

  • In some instances, you can simply click one time on the picture you want to print and then choose the print option for your browser. The print option can usually be chosen by opening the File Menu and then clicking Print, or by clicking the print button, if it is available, in your browser window.
  • With some browsers, you can right-click on the picture and one of the options in the drop down menu is to print just that image/picture.
  • If the drop down menu that pops up when you right-click on the image does not have a print option, choose to view the image and it will open ​ni a browser page all by itself and you can print it that way.
  • Some browsers have problems printing when there are frames involved. If this is the case, you can remove any frames in the browser window. Right-click the section of the browser window that has the picture. If it is ​​on a framed site, one of the options should say something along the lines of "Open Frame in New Window". Click on that option and you should then be able to follow the browser printing directions above. (TIP: Some frame windows have a button that lets you remove the frame also!)
