This labors the obvious but the files you want are right here...this page. If you open the 3 heavy lines at the extreme right-top of this page, you will see on the left a large band marked "Downloads". Select that and follow the instructions. This has all been changed recently, not for the better IMHO, but the above instructions will get you there.

I believe you are looking for an older download version of Stretch rather than the smart arse answer :

http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/images/

This gives all previous versions released if you don’t want buster at the moment.it doesn’t however give an option including recommended software although that’s easily resolved once booted

The current release is Buster. Why are you specifically looking for Stretch? (Every new major release *will* work on all older Pis. The newest models always require the--at the time--latest release. Thus, Buster will run just fine on a Pi3B+ but a Pi4B can only run Buster.)

There’s always a wider audience that will have FUD around earlyish adoption of the new distro, and with some things definitely still broken in buster I acknowledge people’s desire to stick with stretch presently.

Er i just looked and while the buster images are there, I failed to find a link to earlier releases in either the raspbian page
https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/
or the installation guide it links to
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /README.md

only hint of a stretch image was the x86 version..

Or I totally overlooked it??

regardless could you paste a link and or point out just how blind i am and show me please.

Possibly, but it's an awfully specific request for a first post.

Its a shame for cases like this it appears the archives only keep a full image, but not a lite or fully loaded with recommended software. Options go from 3 choices to 1 once deprecated

Thanks fruit, one recursive directory and it’s all there in all it’s glory, my bad - hands up.

You have therefore definitively answered it.
