Please explain in more detail. Which slide shows are you talking about... I mean from a particular website, or in general? You will have to provide more details for someone to be able to help you.

Can you give us a little more detail? What type of slide show? What do you mean "join"?

If you can view it, you can save it. If they have placed the images on public view, then you could save them - unless they have gone to some lengths to stop you doing that - in which case you should maybe get the message...

This applies to images presented in most ways, ie in a slideshow or rotator. To save Flash and other vid-types you need a special grabber but there are tons of those, google for 'youtube video downloader' etc.

For images, right-click, choose View Image, and if it's there, it's there. Otherwise Save the entire page and pix should be in the gfx folder. Firefox is bad at that job so you might want to use another browser. Even the Ffx plugin for full-page saving doesn't work properly on simple gfx sometimes.

Or get an URL off of an image or two then navigate to that directly on the server.

But if they are trying to stop you doing that then maybe there's a reason - like, you're not welcome for instance.

A slight variation would be to forget the slide show you've seen and make your own.

Just save the images of whatever you want from wherever you want and then use a freeware program like this to turn them into a slide show. This way you can choose your own effects and even add music.
Buy a Hoover and prove technology sucks.

And if you really really can't save the darned pic to your disk why not explore further possibilities with

Gadwin Print Screen

The above mentioned Fast Stone Image Viewer will thereafter come in very handy
