Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I could access to satellite wms layer where personal use is permissive. I want to download a specific area of this wms layer. I have the url of WMS: it works in josm. But when I put the option of "Save as" and jpg in josm, it saves the file as java serialization file.

Any comments for getting it?

Thanks in advance, Xan.

Your question is not OpenStreetMap related. (If it were about OpenStreetMap then we would have to ask you to refrain from using the imagery as it is for personal use only, and data we store in OSM is for any use, personal, professional, commercial!)

JOSM is not the right tool for downloading and storing WMS data. You should look into free GIS software, like Quantum GIS, for that.
