I think the quickest way to do that is to grab them from your page (literally click and drag) then fix and upload.  Don't forget to delete the first version or rename them before uploading so you can tell them apart. (I don't know how else to get them myself)

Hello,

If the photo is on the published website and in a gallery you can select the image so it opens or expands then from there you can right click on the image and save image as. If it is not in a gallery you will need to right click on the page the image is on, select inspect and find the photo url or link and open it from there, then right click and save as.

Thank you for the replies. I have not found a way to save an image with the steps you've provided. My preference would be to save images that are stored in "my images" of the editor. But I have not discovered how to do that. Any help there would be appreciated.

So I did try a few things and I was able to do it, this one should definitely help! First have the editor open and also a new blank tab. If you go to the "my images" option and click on the image and drag it into that new tab and release it will open the image, from there you can right click and save as to save that image to your computer. Hopefully this helps.

Actually that may only open and save them as a small thumbnail. I am still trying a few different things though and I will keep you updated if I find another way.

If you go into "My Images" then select and drag the photo to the desktop (or a file on the desktop) they will transfer at the size they appear on the website.  I just take the "desktop file" and open it in Photoshop. This is what I do if I need to "strip out" a picture from the website.

Thanks. I was able to drag-n-drop from "my images" folder to my desktop. The problem is the resolution had become so small and not really a workable image. I can't find the original to correct it - wish I could. I appreciate all the help. If anyone figures out a way to download hi-res pics, lemme kno. Thank you.
