Save or Download Protected Images

Normally, you can save Images/Pictures from Flickr (or any website) by right clicking the photograph and saying “Save Image As..” but in the case of protected Flickr images,
all you will see on the desktop is a blank 1×1 pixel placeholder image called spaceball.gif
Reason : When a Flickr or orkut member has set download permissions to disallow his/her photos from being downloaded, a transparent image is overlaid on the actual photo so the right-click method fails.
Solution : You may either use the good-old Print Screen / Screenshot or any of the methods below to defeat the Orkut image protection…
For Firefox: Go to Tools -> Page Info -> Media – Scroll down until you see that orkut image in the Media Preview Window. Click the Save As button.
See the Screenshot Below
In IE, Opera, Safari or Firefox: Right click the Flickr web page and chose “View HTML source” – now search for “spaceball.gif” in the HTML source. You’ll find the full location of the protected image enclosed in the img src=” Link of Image “
Now find the Actual image Link and Download it.
You can also use this trick to Download images from other image protected sites.
