As I am on Poopiekat’s block list I can’t reply directly, but would have suggested this:

Using Shift/Prt Scr when viewing a page on Ebay with the picture of object of desire puts the whole web page into the Clipboard.

I then start up the very useful – FREE – Irfanview ( from http://www.irfanview.com/ ) and Edit/Paste to put the Clipboard contents onto the screen.

I then click and drag the box that appears around the part of the screen page that I want, before selecting Edit/Crop Selection.

This leaves the wanted picture on the screen, and it can be File/Saved As in .jpg or various other formats, ready for posting elsewhere.

Irfanview is a super free program, with lots of features for adjusting images/changing colours/annotating which I have used and recommended for years.
