# Why won't it let me save my rendered image?

I am completely new to blender however have to use it for a university project. Every time I render my image its not giving me the option to save (as you can see in this screenshot). Can anyone please help/tell me why this is happening? There is lighting in the scene so I'm not sure whats going on.

• Perhaps you were hovering over the menu before the image was finished rendering. If so, click away from the menu, then click Image again. – JakeD Apr 2 '17 at 19:01
• @pycoder I've just tried that but its still not giving me the option to save unfortunately; I can imagine it's going to take quite a while for me to work out the program – Nina Apr 2 '17 at 19:14
• maybe - blender.stackexchange.com/questions/15293/…. Generally it should work like - if image doesn't exist on disk yet, then Save As is available; if exists - then both. – Mr Zak Apr 2 '17 at 19:40
• What happens if you press F3 while hovering the image? – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Apr 2 '17 at 19:50
• @MrZak That hasn't worked but I've managed to save it by creating a new render copy. I just pressed the little grey plus sign and for some reason its gave me the save as option in the new screen! Thanks very much for your help! – Nina Apr 2 '17 at 20:10
