WOW, a whole year with no reply.
I completely agree with this and I have actually been in a situation where I COULD NOT find an image that I had used in a mockup.
This is frustrating. I have begun renaming the images “photodune-ID.jpg” so I can find it later. If you search for the ID the image comes up right away.
Without a “Download Comp” option, save-as is the go to solution for using the images in mockups and like aurove said, sometimes the design process is not convenient and you need an image days or weeks after you originally used it.
This also hurts the photographer as well. Say I find a nice bikini image (while searching “Cute girl tanning on beach”), and it gets approved a week after I use the image. Now, a week later, all I know is I need to find this “bikini” image, so I search “bikini” and after clicking through page after page of images I just can’t seem to find the image I used.
SO, what do I do. I settle with a different image from a different photographer. Besides having to explain to the client that I changed the image because “it looks better”, the original photographer loses a sale because I couldn’t find his image.
