    Marcy, you open Utilities > Galleries > Bitmap Gallery (F11).
    One of the images there will be the one you dropped in.
    That give you the filename.

    It is stored within your Xara design file.

    To recover a version, drag from the Bitmap Gallery onto your design page.
    Select and File > Export JPEG (or PNG) and follow the dialogs thereafter.

    Also, when you find the image in the Bitmap Gallery, note the name and extension (for example 10259.jpg), and in Windows File Explorer, do a search for that file name and extension and it should locate the image on your computer.

    I think acorn is referring to exporting the image held in the XAR file to a location of your choosing, thereby recovering a copy

    btw: I remember reading somewhere when I first started with xara [so a long time ago] a suggestion by the company that you could use a XAR file simply to store bitmaps in - the options have widened considerably since then, but I still have XARs that contain the only copies of their bitmaps [the XARs are backed up of course ]

    As I suggested, not to save an image but to find (as per the OP request) the location of an image.

    OK. I know this image is on my D drive.

    I wrote down the image file I was searching for based on the name of the image in Bitmap Gallery.

    In File Explorer, D drive I searched for b & w 9.png

    Voila!

    Right click on any image in the Bitmap Gallery and select the Save menu option to save the original JPEG/PNG back to your file system.

    I mention this approach and the one I covered above as all too often people delete original images.

    It is also worth looking for a Masters sub-folder, typically alongside you XAR file location (probably not in Xara Web Designer though): Options > Photo Editing.
    When you open an image file ain a Blank Photo template, you get this added bonus.

    Nope. Does not work. I just tried this with another fill image from my D drive and Save wants to save it to my desktop.
