Hi Leon,

I don't know about paper, but here's a method to save an online image, where that facility seems unavailable....

1. Enlarge the image to the greatest extent possible on your monitor, whether it is by clicking on the thumbnail of the image or the "+" sign you sometimes see with images to make it as large as you can by that means.

2. IF the image is the Full Size of the monitor THEN - GOTO step 3, otherwise:
HOLD down the CTRL key whilst at the same time press the "+" key once. Each time you press the + key the image will increase in size by one step. Keep doing this until the image fills the screen as much as possible (in one direction- either vertically or horizontally). This is in order to maximise the replicated resolution of your image.

3. Press the PRT Sc (Print Screen) Key on your keyboard. Depending on your Keyboard it's often above the Home and End Key Block on a full number pad type keyboard. Doing his copies whatever is on the screen to the clipboard.

4. Open an application like Microsoft Paint or Microsoft Word and then PASTE the image (saved on your clipboard) into the application using the PASTE icon in the application or pressing CTRL-V. Then if in MS Paint, save that image as a JPEG or if in Word, save it in whatever form you desire.

Hey presto ... Done.
Have Fun

Or if it's really a Paper, .....get your camera out


Best
JA.

Hi Leon


Consider contacting the paper, they may be able to sell you a copy.

Hi Leon - you should be able to 'right click' the photo and do a "Save image as"

when you say "It won't let me".....what is "it" that you are trying to do?

If right click 'save as' doesn't work and you're on a Windows machine, go to the 'start' menu search bar(does win 10/11 still have this?) Then type 'snip' open the 'snipping tool' that should come up from the search, click and drag to select the area of the photo, save as jpg.

I have done this in the past.

If it is recent, write to Fairfax with the date and a web link, and ask for a print for personal use; they do sell them at a modest cost and what you get is much better quality than what appears online.

Well thank you all, yes I do know the right click and save method do that quite often.

However Today I actually learned how to do a screen shot and it did work great, thanks JA. actually it was so crisp and clear too.

You would think after using a computer for all these years I should have known how to do that.

Ah well never to old to learn I guess

Leon

If you find the snipping tool, it's even quicker and easier than a screenshot

Irfanview is free software and has screen capture functionality. Using Irfanview you can stretch a box around the item on the screen that you're after and it just grabs that part of the screen.
