Let's say you would like to refer to a book from Amazon, and you would also like to use-and-properly-credit-of-course the photo. But crap, it has that "Click to Look Inside!" arrow on it. It's not a big deal, but...you don't want it on there, especially since then it looks like the person reading your post could click on the photo to look inside the book, when actually they can't. But even if you take the image to photo-altering software, it's tricky to get the arrow ALL the way off without chopping some of the photo.
This is why you should have married a computer guy. Maybe you didn't, but I did, and he told ME so I can tell YOU how to get rid of the arrow.
Here is how things look at the beginning. There's the book you want a picture of, but it has the arrow on it, like so:
Hover over the image and right-click the mouse button (if you have that kind of mouse) (if you don't, these instructions will be useless) (unless you know what the equivalent of right-clicking your mouse would be) to bring up the little menu, and select "View Image"---being careful not to click on the search-inside-this-book menu that pops up when you hover over the image of the book:
This will take you to a big white refreshingly-empty page with just the picture of the book, complete with its Click to Look Inside! arrow. In the URL field, highlight everything between the FIRST comma and the LAST comma:
Hit "enter" to make that section disappear and simultaneously activate the new URL. Look: arrowless book picture!
Right-click this new image and select "Save Image As..." (or your computer's equivalent) as usual.
