QuestionThis will save the downscaled version. Any way to get the full resolution easily?wikiHow Staff EditorStaff AnswerI just tried this and got the full-sized version of the image. I don't know how you got a downscaled version. You may need to select "Open in new tab" before right-clicking it again and saving. Also, make sure you're right-clicking the image in the panel on the right (clicking the image on the left, in the Google grid, will result in a downscaled image).
