You may very well copy and paste from a browser, BUT, if that copy/paste
is dragging the mouse across an area to select the copy, you are ONLY
copying at screen resolution and WILL LOOSE RESOLUTION from the displayed
image.  If you are copying the web address of the image and using that,
you retain the displayed image's resolution.  

In order to retain the image's resolution provided it is greater than your
screen, you *must* download subj image or use it's web address with
amounts to the same.

Usually one can discern the web address of an image by right clicking upon
it, unless it is displayed by flash and then digging into the flash source
is necessary.  There are apps available that will provide flash hidden
