I able to capture 95 percent of the pictures I need on Safari, by just dragging the image to my desktop. But there are some images that can not be dragged. Specifically, some pictures from a Adobe Flash Slideshow. Is there a way to capture these pictures? Do I need to buy additional software? Any suggestions which one would work? Thank you in advance.

    Because they are being called by a script rather than inserted in HTML you can't drag them. You could take a screenshot - command-shift-4, drag the mouse over the area of the picture and release.

    I've also found that Safari usually won't copy an image to the clipboard when you Control-click on the image and select "Copy Image" from the contextual popup--instead, it will copy the image's URL address to the clipboard, as if you'd selected the popup's other option, "Copy Image Address". Anybody have any idea why this is? It's not as if Apple is trying to prevent you from copying images that someone may consider copyrighted, since you can still get a copy of the image by selecting the popup's option, "Save Image to the Desktop", or "Add image to iPhoto Library". In other browsers, selecting "Copy Image" works fine, placing the image on the clipboard.
