How to download just the images...

Assuming you've got a printer, you could always just hit the print
button in your broswer. For building circuits, a printout of the
schematic is probably going to be pretty helpful, since it's easy
to write on while you're building.
The schematics I have on the web pages were created with MacPaint!
(cad packages produce very nice output on high resolution devices,
but very poor low resolution output suitable for www inline gifs)
There is no format available other than a bitmapped image, and
there are a number of ways to get the images from the web to your
hard drive... I'd appreciate it if you'd try these, since you'll
likely need to acquire the image again if I update it, or acquire
others as I make more available.
If you still have trouble, let me know. I hope you can get the
images without my help via email, since I will be making many
more available in the next year, as well as revising the ones
that are already on-line.
- Using netscape, you put the cursor over the inline image you want
to download then press and hold the right mouse button. On a mac,
just hold the (only) mouse button for a couple seconds. A popup
menu will appear, and one of the options lets you download the
image file directly to your disk drive. Other browsers usually
have some other mechanism that's similar to this.
- As well, you could use "view source" to find the image's name on
my system and type the full url to your browser... which would
then access the image only. When viewing the image only, the
save feature ought to save the image itself. For example, viewing
the source of: http://system.name/dir1/dir2/file.html, you find
<img src="imagename.gif">, then the url you use to get the image is
- Alternately, most browsers have a cache, and the image is probably
one of the files in the cache directory, but the name is usually
lost. Using an image viewer which identifies files without the
proper extensions/types, it should be easy to get it from your cache.
- As a last resort, you could use a "screen grabber" program to save
a snapshot of your screen to a file... and then just edit away
the stuff you didn't want. On a mac, I believe you press
shift-apple-4 to do this. For unix, xv 3.1 supports screen
capture, but I don't use ms windoze, so I have no idea how to do
it, but I'm sure it's possible somehow.
- I won't go into how one might use telnet to port 80 and directly
access the web manually by typing in a HTTP/1.0 GET request...
