Saving a web page without the graphics

I have a page with a graphic. I want to be able to define the graphics such
that it is not saved when the viewer saves the page to his local drive. I'm
trying to avoid having a seperate folder created just for the graphic when
the page is saved.

The page is an asp page that is used to access a database record. I have the
page title convey the record name so that the user can save the page and it
will be saved with the record name. I just don't want the graphic repeatedly
save as well.

That's up to the reader. Depending on his browser, he can save just the
HTML or the complete page including graphics. There's nothing the author
can do (or should be able to do) to affect this. If you think your
readers need help with this, provide a page with instructions.

Pointless exercise. Once the viewer sees your page, the entire
page already exists on the viewer's system. It's up to the
viewer what they do with it, including how they save it.

You could:
- provide instructions for popular browsers how to
save webpages without saving the graphics
- create versions of your pages that don't contain
the graphics, and provide a "save text only"
link on the real pages

If there are images on the page, and the user uses his browser's Save
Full Page feature, then there's nothing you can do to prevent the
browser from doing exactly that.

The page is an asp page that is used to access a database record. I have the
page title convey the record name so that the user can save the page and it
will be saved with the record name. I just don't want the graphic repeatedly

Do what lots of sites do: have a link on the page reading "Printable
version of this page" that doesn't contain the images. This is useful
for both printing AND saving. For example, when I want to save a recipe
from Epicurious.com or FoodTV.com, I always click to and save the
printable version.
