Save Image As PNG

Description from extension meta

Adds the "Save Image As PNG" option to the context menu of images.

Image from store Save Image As PNG
Description from store Converts an image to PNG before showing the Save As dialog. WebP is a new image format developed by Google. These images are small, but their format is not widely recognized yet. By converting the image to PNG, you will be able to use it in image editing programs, and/or upload it to online image hosting sites such as imgur. The extension has a low footprint: It does not use any memory or CPU unless you use it by clicking on the context menu option. Update (4 January 2014): If you use Chrome 30 or lower, then you cannot save the image from some web sites (such as the Chrome Web Store). Update to Chrome 31 for an optimal user experience. Notice (30 June 2014): Chrome 35 on KDE (Linux) has a bug that causes Chrome to crash whenever the Save As dialog is opened by an extension. Downgrade to Chrome 34 or upgrade to Chrome 36 to solve the problem.

  • (2019-09-13) Sam D'Cruz: it does seem to save images as a png, but is SO annoying because everytime i save another image, it tries to save it in the downloads folder rather than the previous folder i saved to. Since i need to save many images, this is very very annoying and time consuiming to have to navigate to the correct folder every time!!!
  • (2019-09-11) Loved the extension.
  • (2019-08-26) BC SurfSport: Super helpful. I wish it would remember the last folder I saved to, or allow me to choose a default but otherwise great.
  • (2019-07-22) Coder Loft: It's not working, Saying, . An error occurred while saving the image: Invalid filename
  • (2019-07-16) Mike Rocheleau: Allows saving Web image as a more common file, but, it does not save to the last save location. Each new save defaults to Downloads. This is extremely annoying and wastes time.
  • (2019-07-05) Pete Ratcliffe: I installed this as I wanted to save a particular image and it simply doesn't work. If I try to save from the actual site I get a 'Failed - Network error' which is nonsense as the image wouldn't show up in the first place if there was a network issue. If I save the .WEBP page to my local drive, open that in Chrome and try to save the image, I get 'An error occurred while loading file:///C:/{path_to_image}.webp'. So, in summary, it's useless, or has limitations that aren't documented.
  • (2019-06-30) Amir ///: can you plz set an option for not asking saving path every time? thx

  • (2019-04-20) Anonymisty: It did NOT work on any webpage and aslo does not convert a file that says WEBP....

  • (2020-05-31, v:1.0.2) Steve Butters: Download directory
    Hi, love your extension, was wondering if you could add functionality for choosing download directory? With saving images from chrome normally, whichever file you last saved an image to will be the file that automatically is chosen to save the next image to, but with this extension it defaults to saving in the images folder, but I like to save to desktop. App is great otherwise, this would be a nice quality of life feature though!
  • (2019-04-27, v:1.0.2) Warmuser: Please, add the
    Please, add the possibility to save the picture also in other different formats, for example ".bmp", ".tiff", etc.. Also by default setting in the Browser. It's a bit annoying to save each photo by selecting the extension. It could be greater If it will be consent automatically by a setting. Let me know if it is possible, thanks!

    Since the latest update to Google Chrome the extension crashes the browser when trying to save an image. This is happening to other people on Windows and I'm on Linux, the extension worked fine before the latest Chrome update.

  • (2018-09-12, v:1.0.2) 999MDA999: Folder location
    Please let users decide where to save the pictures to. Or use the last used folder. It's a pain when using it often to browse around to get to the save folder for every single PNG...
