How to Save Photos from the Web to iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch

You may wonder how to save the intersting photos or images to your device when you brows the web with your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. There are many reasons you may desire to do so — perhaps the photo will make a great backdrop, is a photo of you or a friend, or just something you find interesting enough to keep and share with your friends on Facebook or Twitter.

Save pictures from web to iPad, iPhone or iPod touch

Saving an image from Safari into your camera roll is a simple task. This guide helps you find out how to save these photos.

  1. Find the photo you wish to save
  2. Press your finger against the image.
  3. Tap and hold down on the photo
  4. A menu will slide up – tap “Save Image”
  5. The photo will be saved to your Camera Roll
  • Saved images end up in your Photos library (Saved Images on an iPad; Camera Roll on an iPad 2 or third-generation iPad), from which they can be synced back to a computer.
  • If you tap Copy instead, you can paste the image into an e-mail or as a link in a program, such as Notes.

Bonus Tip: If the above method doesn’t work (some websites don’t allow images to be saved), then pinch to zoom into the image at the desired crop and take a screenshot.
