    In order to *force* a download dialog rather than whatever the user's browser is configured to do with that image type, you'll need to either modify the web server configuration or write a server-side program. You'd need to change the content-type header that's sent before the file to something like force-download or octet-stream so that the browser doesn't handle it as an image.

    You can't change the behavior of linking to an image with JavaScript alone.
