Does anyone know how I can save the large mouse over graphic on Alibaba, Aliexpress? I have looket at the source code to find the graphic and I can't find it. Right clicking the graphic does not work.

I want to sell a couple of items I found there, but I need graphics obviously, yet I can't seem to get the vendor to answer me on getting the graphics and I am tired of keep going back and forth and only getting a few of my questions answered and avoiding some even after repeated questions.

      +I wish it were that easy. The graphic does not appear in full when you scroll over it. I have to figure out some other way.

    I just saved two images from two different categories from Aliexpress by using right click on both the main image and one on the expanded image while using Firefox? Not sure why you might be having the issues.

    However, a bit of friendly advice, if the vendor is not answering or avoiding your questions, are you sure you want to attempt selling their items? How responsive will they be when the buyer does not receive their item (if it is dropshipping you are considering?) or when you place a large order with them and do not receive it when you expected?

    If they are not manufacturers, they may not own the image rights and that may be the reason they are avoiding answering your questions regarding the images??

    I have had that issue.

    If you use the browser "Opera" you can just drag the photo into the address bar and it will open up in its own window with just the image.

    If you looking to get any information from these suppliers, try to find your product on Aliexpress if you can as they have an instant messenger instead of just emailing back and forth.

    I buy a ton of stuff from there, its my full time business. . I do not do business with those who do not message back, but also remember there is a 12 hour difference, so try to get online around 10am Hong Kong time so they can talk. Many have skype as well.

    There is always multiple sellers selling the same item..with various costs. I always talk to at least 5 or 6 for the same product. They will always come down in price to match the lower price one you found listed, as long as everything else is the same such as retail packaging, shipping method, quality etc.

    I usually only do business with someone over 100 feedbacks, but at the same time, thats not to cross out any seller with say 30-40, because they could be ok. Talk with them, feel it out, look at there other product listings etc.

    Aliexpress has good security measures in place. The seller does not receive the money from you until you click "order received". So when you get the package, check it, count the pieces, test them, and then confirm you got the order. Just incase. Use a credit card as a backup just incase you can always just chargeback the card no problem.

    I have not had a single issue on that site yet. 1 golden rule - ALWAYS stay within Aliexpress to complete the deal. They may offer you a discount for western union which is not always a scam but its not worth the extra money. Ali charges them 5% fee. Its worth a 5% price increase just to be safe until you establish relationships.

    When talking to Chinese over there, you must simplify everything since the language barrier. Do not use alot of descriptive words and small talk, get straight to business.

    As far as image rights go. They do not give 2 licks about rights over there. lol. They only care about making sales. They are very hard workers, and most of the time will do anything to keep you happy.

    Well, I would agree that if the supplier does not reply then why would you do business with them. For most products there are more than one suppliers that will work.

    Now, regarding the images. I was just on eBay looking at Android phones. Every single seller was using the same image for the same products. So, how do you stand out? Get a sample and take your own pictures. In most cases you can do a much better job, and you will stand out. And YOU own them (copyright them).

    Go to the source code and search for .jpg
    You will be able to find a link with .jpg at the end. Open that link and you will get the picture,

        If you use Chrome, just do right click on the page and select Inspect. Then go to in the Inspect window, find the menu item "Resources" at the top. Then find Frame / Images and you will see all the images that the web page uses.
        So quite easy or may be I misunderstood the question.

          Exactly as stated...

          This is for Aliexpress:
          Or you can "right click" on the smaller image(s) and "Open image in a new tab". Once the tab opens, "click" on the url and go to the end of the url and delete the following text "_50x50.jpg". VOILA! You will have the original image and not the scaled down version. I'm using Google Chrome BTW.

    I use the Web Developer plugin for FireFox. I right click anywhere on a page, select Web Developer > Images > View Image Information and it pulls every single image from that page. You can then right click on those images and save them or you can click on the URLs that it provides and go directly to that image's URL.
