It depends on what kind of image file you want...

If you want a png or jpeg, etc you can download it from the site and use the share link at the right side. See also the this link to a previous question for other relevent points.


Instead, if you want .img type map file to load on to a Garmin gps you don't download directly from the link above but from one of the sites that convert the osm data into a Garmin suitable map. See these Garmin osm map download sites

I suggest that the first time you do this that you do a small local area such as the local suburb to acquaint yourself with the process. The BBBike "Select your own region" is good for this.

As a beginner using a Garmin, I found this DC RAINMAKER site to be helpful. The process is similar for most models.
