Do you have an option to right click and choose "save as"? Otherwise, save the whole page to a directory of your choosing and then use windows explorer to open the dirtectory; the files will be there.

Right click and choose "save as" as per Diodorus Siculus' suggestion. If you require further or more precise instruction then don't hesitate to post back.

By what method do you "copy and paste" as you put it?

Right click the picture. From the drop down box select 'Save as', then using the drop down box at the bottom select Jpeg, this is a popular format, then at the top of the picture select a folder, I suggest 'My documents' or 'My pictures', ensure that in the appropriate box that the image has some form of name, and click OK. This is as suggested above, but with a little more detail. When you open your folder with the picture in it, a double left click should open it.
