Save Image As PNG

CRX id


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.

  • (2021-09-29) Blissfucker: This is nearly a perfect extension for me. Copying and pasting a picture into an editing program then saving as PNG is such a hassle. However, there's 2 main issues with this extension. 1. It should remember the last place you saved a picture. Normally when you save a picture (without the extension), the next time you save another picture, it'll take you to the last folder you saved to. Starting at the downloads folder every time is a waste of time and goes against why I sought out an extension like this in the first place. 2. For some reason, when I have this extension installed on a secondary user on Chrome and use it, it causes Chrome to be unresponsive for about 15-20 seconds and its RAM usage gradually goes up until it reaches 4-5gb. Afterwards everything goes back to normal and it doesn't happen again at all, until you restart the browser. It happens on the first save every single time you open your browser anew. This issue is also present on Brave, even though I have no more than 1 user there. Right now I only have this extension installed on my first user on Chrome and nowhere else so this issue is not present.
  • (2021-08-30) 0 0: Hello, your chrome extension is not working. Thank you for your extension, it would be helpful. But when I try to save a picture, it saves it to the same folder, without remembering the folder where I saved the picture the last time. Because of this, the extension cannot be used. Please correct.
  • (2021-07-22) Luc Forbes: Works well, haven't had any real issues. It's a bit annoying that it automatically opens the download bar when an image is saved, but it's not a huge deal.
  • (2021-06-10) no name: "An error occurred while loading https://i.pximg.net/......." Was an awesome tool to have while it worked, but Pixiv found a way to disable it with their last update?
  • (2021-04-06) K.C. Weng: This is one of my frequently used extensions, However, it does not save files to the previous folder and always point to the Downloads folder. It becomes very inefficient to save multiple files on the same page to the same location. Please fix this and it will be a great tool.
  • (2021-03-27) M. J.: luckily I rarely have to use chrome, thank you for fixing what google prefers to keep broken
  • (2021-03-03) 希望alex: Works! Thanks.
  • (2021-02-19) Joseph Hindy: I have used this literally thousands of times for work. It works about 98% of the time. Sometimes it'll futz up and say something about a file extension or something and I have to uninstall and re-install the plugin (and then restart the browser) to fix it, but that doesn't happen often. Works on both Edge and Chrome.
  • (2021-01-15) Allison Simpson: Worked immediately! I installed it, went back to my tab with the image open, saw "save as png" and got it saved.
  • (2021-01-15) Luscious Chum: C'mon guys... What can be better than this? I can save any image from any website as png for photoshop work! Highly recommended!
  • (2020-11-01) Michael Grey: does not save images from Pixiv, which was the entire reason I downloaded it.
  • (2020-10-27) tiago perazzo: dont work
  • (2020-10-24) Oleh Savchuk: This is trojan virus that puts IFRAME in to every page you visit!
  • (2020-09-29) William Stone: Useless. Doesn't work; redirects back to App store.
  • (2020-09-20) GTTOfficial: Does not work in Twitter DM's.
  • (2020-07-16) The Franchise: Would like to remember download folder as others mentioned. But it worked perfectly in my case. Trying to get images from Wix is failing because of the way they have their layout. It's not really an image that the plugin can access in the way Wix is doing it. That's not a plugin issue, that's Wix being Wix.
  • (2020-07-15) Roy: It's very inconvenient that every time you start a new save, you're taken to the downloads folder instead of the last folder you saved to. Would be 5 stars otherwise.
  • (2020-07-08) Pathetic: very nice to use i ALL ways get jiff pictures so its help
  • (2020-04-07) Alexis Brion: Not working for me on a mac, error message: "An error occurred while saving the image: Invalid filename" :-P

  • (2019-12-31) MR: Works perfectly in 2020. WebP is great and all but nobody supports it
  • (2019-12-29) Messiah Mews: Save Image As PNG An error occurred while saving the image: Invalid filename
  • (2019-12-20) Prasad Studios surat: It's Working..thank you
  • (2019-11-07) LIRIA belmonte: excellent, exactly what i needed!
  • (2019-10-01) Luis Dario Fernandez: a tomar por cul0 google, plena dictadura sos, es lo que pasa cuando existe un monopolio. webp formato culer0. no soy tan boludo
  • (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
  • (2019-06-06) Tessa Carey: Worked for a little bit, but doesn't work anymore since Chrome update.
  • (2019-05-19) Tehuti Eightyeight: "Failed: Network Error." Every time. Totally useless to save WEBP as PNG, so totally useless as an extension. :/
  • (2019-05-09) Maximiliano Petry: No funciona
  • (2019-05-09) Training Spb: Вместо пнг сохраняет приложение, подозрительно
  • (2019-04-30) Endre Varga: Using on 500px, "failed download, network error". No network error here, normal saving is possible.
  • (2019-04-27) Warmuser: Amazing!
  • (2019-04-20) Anonymisty: It did NOT work on any webpage and aslo does not convert a file that says WEBP....
  • (2019-03-02) Star Foth: Doesn't work "failed - Network error"
  • (2019-02-23) Used to be a great 5/5 Extension but now it just pops up with "Failed - Network error" (note: nothing is wrong with my internet) Saving the image normally works and downloads still work. Extension is broken right now.
  • (2019-01-09) John O'Brien: It works fine and is really useful. The only thing I wish I could do is set the default download location. Right now it points to my downloads folder and I want it to default to another directory. Is there any way to do this? Thanks!
  • (2018-12-21) Mick: Does what it says, quickly and easily, I only wish it removed the download location, it's fine if using the downloads folder but if I want to save elsewhere, ie Direct to a USB drive I have to select it each time.
  • (2018-12-08) Saleh Mahmud: It works for me! Thanks!
  • (2018-10-16) PAOLO usai: funziona ed è molto pratico
  • (2018-10-15) Meirinna Hyuga: No le doy mucho por aun no se como ira, pero al intentar descargar en png lo ase, que esa miseria de wedp es molesto y no me lo abre en visor de imagenes, tsk...
  • (2018-10-03) Robert Cales: I really like this addon so far because I save a lot of images from various sites and some of them use the webp format which sucks because nearly nothing recognizes that file type. I would think if Google wants to make a new type, they would give out the codec everywhere for it so everything else can open the file. It appears logic is in short supply even in multi billion dollar companies. So the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I can't seem to find anywhere, how to change the default save folder setting. I save a lot of stuff and I like to keep it all organized on my machine so everytime I use this to save something, it goes back to the same folder over and over. Is there any way to change this setting? And if not, will it be added later?

    Recently, whenever I save an image as png, after selecting the save destination, the image opens automatically in the default image program (in my case windows photos). This did not happen before and I cannot get this behavior to stop.
  • (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!
