When using Safari on your Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, many people don’t know that there is a way to save the images that appear on web pages. Here’s how it’s done.
- Touch and hold the image that you wish to save for about 2 seconds until a menu appears.
- Select “Save Image“.
If you only have an option to copy the image or nothing appears, the image may be blocked from saving or used as a background element. Those types of images cannot be saved from a web page. You could try zooming in or out on the page, then taking a screenshot to get around this in some cases.
The image is immediately saved to the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch’s memory. If you wish to see the image, you can open the “Photos” app. It will be in the “Camera Roll“. You can also mount the device to your PC and view it in the “DCIM” folder.
