Dear Experts,

I have a problem to save images on web page to specified local path using javascript.
It seems that the browser do not allow javascript to to that because of security or virus protection...

Do you have any solution for this? Please help!

Regards.

No, you're right.  The browsers do not allow javascript to save files locally because of security restrictions.  If a web page could save files to your computer without your permission, then we all would be infested with viruses all the time.  If you find a way to do this with your web page javascript, you will shortly find your web site blocked by the anti-virus programs.

So, It means there's no solution for this.
Or at least, we must ask permission from user. After that, we can save the file to the specified path on local. User doesn't need to specify the path to save image.

Please help.

No, that's not true either.  The user can right-click on an image and save it anywhere they want.  You can't force them to download it and you can not specify the path though you could suggest it on the page where the image is.
