How to Export Your Waves from Google Wave

As we draw closer to the death of Wave, Google has given its users an easy way of getting all that valuable content out of Google Wave. The new feature allows users to export waves (one at a time) including any attachments on the Wave. If you used images quite a bit while one Wave you may disappointed with the quality you are able to download (hopefully you kept the originals), the Help docs state that Google Wave only stores down-sampled images, so the export will not include the original images. At least you are able to download the information. The guide below will show you how to export your waves. If you have any comments or questions please use the comments form at the end of the article.
