Unfortunately, that was the only way to do it as when you enlarge the image you aren't shown the image itself but rather a weird Java/Flash abomination. Guess it protects the seller's images from casual thievery.

If you're using Firefox, try eBay - Item Description - Save Enlarged Pix.

actually no, i opened the page in IE8, right clicked the image and went to properties, and the link to the jpeg was right there, a simple copy/paste [enter] loaded the image just fine
