    What OS are you using? Obviously, getting any helpful instructions is going to require you to loosen up a little bit and give information about your system.

    It's possible that the creator of the site placed a transparent image over top of the one you were trying to download.

    View the page source and find the filename of the image. If you don't want to look through the html, you could save the entire page and look for the image in the folder that is created for that page's files.
