How do I take copywrited images from a website?

    There is a picture on a website that I would like to use as a desktop background image for my PC. However, when I try to right click the image to "save as" it tells me that the image is copyrighted and does not allow me to save the image. Is there a program that will allow me to get around this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    in firefox, go to Tools and then Page Info. under the Media tab, locate your picture and save it.


    with firefox, i've always been able to right-click and save pictures, even though it gives me a simultaneous popup that the image is copy-protected. *shrugs*
