Can no longer save pictures using Opera

  • Since the last Opera update, although I can right click a picture & select "save picture", the downloaded picture does not show as a thumbnail, nor can I use it in Photoshop or view it in any of my picture viewing programs.

    I now have to use IE to do the save option, which means I have to have two browsers active & draining my resources, as I use Opera for everything else & it's my preferred browser.

    Anyone help?

  • @mythrelle Any examples where this is happening? The pictures are being saved on a regular image format?

  • @leocg The pictures are in my IMVU album. You can possibly access them here:
    They used to save as .png files, and still show as being saved as .png files, but are no longer viewable in Windows photo viewer and won't open in Photoshop. However, I can still view & use them as normal if I save them from IE (which I prefer not to use). Thanks for your help 🙂
