Suggestion: When you save an image, it should not always be named as "images.duckduckgo.com.png" by default. Maybe take the end of the URL instead?

It's because you are downloading image from reverse proxy (duckduckgo's mechanism that protects your privacy) if you want to have original name of the picture click View File and Save Images As..

First, I'm very surprised that somebody replied to my post that fast. Thumbs up for this.

Concerning the annoyance: Well yeah, I know, but it's more clicks... when you grab a lot of pictures, you want these steps to be reduced as much as possible, so why not just get the filename from the end of the URL then? See attached.

It's likely possible from a technical end but we don't have internal resources to divert there immediately. This platform is entirely open source so that anyone can help with minor things like this (and major things, like overhauling the notification system)

I understand. It's a suggestion.
