I need to put a save link/button for an image in the HTML page.  To be short, I don't want the user to right-click and choose the option "Save Picture As" or "Save Image" of the browser.  Instead I want the user to click a link or button that is displayed just under the image.  After clicking the link/button, the user should be able to save the image in his/her local hard disk/machine in a particular folder or just under C:\ or bringing up the file directory dialog box where the user can save in his/her own folder.  I am using jsp to code the page.

Is it possible to do this with jsp, html, or javascript?  Can anyone help me?

I don't want to zip the image and then give a link in the html, because the image is dynamically created using EazayCharts depending on the values from the server.  Else it will be good if I can know how to zip an image/file dynamically and then store/save in user's disk/machine.
