Chapter 12. Working with Images
Digital images are ubiquitous — they are available on the
Internet, through email, and even on CD from film developers.
These images are files, and can be manipulated with software
available on your Red Hat Enterprise Linux system. Red Hat Enterprise Linux allows you to save, view,
edit, and create image files.
12.1. Saving Images
Images that are not copyrighted can be saved directly from many
web pages. Right click on an image and select either
Save Image or Save Image
As, depending on the browser you use to view the
web pages. Some web sites have disabled this function because
their images are copyrighted.
Images in email messages may also be saved on your system. These
images arrive as attachments to the email
message. An attachment is any extra file that is sent together
with an email. Depending on the type of attachment and the
email program you use, the attachment may be displayed as part
of the message. Check the Help contents of
the email program you use to determine how to save attachments
to your computer.
Images you receive on a CD or other removable media device can
be copied and pasted from that medium to a new location on your
system. Refer to Chapter 13 Diskettes and CD-ROMs for more information
on removable media and Nautilus.
