UI: Remove "Save" as context menu item for images

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open attachment 168043 [details]
2. Right click the image

Actual Results:
Save shows up

Expected Results:
Expected suggests 'obviously' wrong; so clear cut case. And no this is heavily debatable topic. From 'coherence' between applications without the suite this 'proper'. And there are definitive people who desire this. 

However it does clutter the context menu and kind of doubt how regular this being used inside Writer. So if this need to have a prominent spot in the context menu.

Alternative is edit with external tool, similar kind of menu item.

However there is likely at a group of 10-25% who might use this daily.. But this my 'estimation' wild guessing.. so in essence worth squad.. Telemetry ....

BTW does LibreOffice Online offer Telemetry? Still see it as ideal source (probably not a panacea) 

Reproducible: Always

I'm expecting 'loud' objections :P I'm acting here against my gut feelings this being a no go..

This is correct behavior with context menu consolidation by Tomaž and fix for bug 60684 by Julien. Have to check if bug 87029 is still causing issues--but believe a context menu 'Save' action for a graphic or image object selected is still required.

It is also corrected (except for EPS which with helper file dependencies could be expected).

The 'Save...' context menu for images/graphics functions as expected cross modules, providing useful workflow(s) including adhoc image format conversion.

So, a clear => WF
