Fine just wondering if anyone else has had the problem and knew how to solve it, if you are all annoyed by a quick query I think you can ignore it but I will take note

Sarahvwomble it is not annoyed by a quick query, it's just not really a chat topic and not quite sure what you are asking, or I am willing to admit I am super thick.

Are you trying to post a deal or what? What are you doing it on? If I hold finger on an image on my tablet it usually allows you to download and then when you touch the camera when posting the images you have downloaded will pop up. Just click on image and the word done.

Sarahvwomble I have often found that when I am on a page of several items and try to download one image it will not work. But if I click on the item and bring it up on it's own it will work. Try if you haven't already and please do let me know if it works.

Sarahvwomble It's always been this way with Asda. I screenshot it and then adjust the image. Better still, copy a stock photo from another site. (I shared a bottle of something today and had to go elsewhere for a decent image - you're not the only one)

Hey Sarahvwomble 🙂

This is a bit of a quirk I believe with how Asda's website works and how they display images.

I'm afraid I don't know a proper way to circumvent this (perhaps someone else will!) but you could theoretically take a screenshot on your phone and then edit/crop it to the right size if Asda's site isn't playing ball.

I will however see if I can tweak the LD system to see if I can get it to automatically fetch the image 👍

Sarahvwomble There is what is probably an easier way if you're using Windows 10 on your PC: Find "snipping tool" which allows you to screen grab just a portion of screen, then save to desktop from there you can add it to deal (or onto here). It only takes a few seconds when you get used to it. When you've finished you can delete it from desktop.

Here's an example: Image

Sarahvwomble It might seem complicated but the "snipping tool" on W10 is very easy to use, it is almost definitely on your computer if you have W10.

I have posted asda deals without picture or in one case I took a photo of the item after I'd got home. If you bought one yourself you could try that

When i have that problem with Asda I just go to google images then grab the image url from there, if not grab a image url of the same item from another site via google images
