It would be great if we could download a snapshot. I would use snapshot to replicate development environment on my local computer, I believe many others will do the same.
would be good if we where able to download them
Until DO develops this feature I'm sticking with my current VPS provider. They also lack this feature, which forces me to make all server changes on a live environment. Not good. :-(
I'd LOVE to be able to test my changes on a local copy of the droplet, before comitting the same changes to the live version of the droplet.
I'm OK with not being abakle to upload the droplet after I've made local changes to it, but when downloading of droplets is availabled I'll comerunning to DO :-)
Please make this happen.
In the interim, you could try any one of these alternatives:

Needs not only download, but migration ability too. I want to send my images to another users and without ticket in support.
When this feature is implemented I'd love to see guides on running the image locally and uploading images that were changed locally - could speed up testing process incredibly.
How is this coming? I cant wait for this :D

Good feature that is extreamly needen
If you make this i will move all my servers to DO!
Yes make IT!!!!!!!!
Downloading and uploading snapshots of VMs can be very useful feature.
May be DigitalOcean could adopt docker . Docker.io , Linux in a container.

Two factors that prevent me from using DO:
1. Lack of Amsterdam droplets.
2. This issue. An ability to download snapshots/backups is a must-have. I develop the topic: it even could be downloaded not to a local computer, but directly to another server as well. I mean, it could be protected Amazon S3 link, for example, or similar.
