After installing, you can see Eagle’s icon in the browser’s extension toolbar. Next, we will introduce some handy functions of the extension!
Right-click to save images
Open your favorite webpage, here we use "Dribbble" as an example. After opening the webpage, right-click on the images whichever you like. You can find "Add images to Eagle" from the right-click menu, click it and then you can add images in Eagle.
Drag and drop to save images
Besides saving images by right click, we can drag and drop to save images, as follows:
Sometimes we want to save multiple images on one webpage. Saving images one by one may not be an efficient way. In this scenario, try our "Batch save" function! Click Eagle browser extension icon in the upper right corner, then select "Batch save". Select images you want to save and click on "Add images", voila!
In addition to saving image resources of the webpages, Eagle extension can also take screenshots in various ways, including "selected area", "visible area", "full page".
By default, images saved with extension will be put under the unclassified list. If you want to classify images when saving images, you can check "Categorize when collecting images" checkbox in preferences of Eagle extension. Once the checkbox is checked, you can save and classify images at the same time.
Great! Now we know how to save images with browser extension! Next, we are going to introduce" How to use the tag to further classify our images".
