Product Image editing - how to download images

Is there a way to download images for editing?  I am using the oberlo app which imports products + images to my shopify store.   I would then like to edit the image.  Unfortunately, the image editor provided by shopify is very rudimentary and doesn't support many functions needed to touch up the images.  

I don't see an option to download the image.  I can copy the image, and paste into a destop editor, but the original size isn't preserved, and so when i fix and add back to the store, it's often much smaller.

Any advice would be appreciated...

Hi @Mike_S, there is a Mega Product Image Exporter app that allows to download images for big amount of products at once. It takes the highest quality available from Shopify so this should be a good option for your case.
