    Default Saving pictures from internet

    Hello everyone long time crackberry user,, Happy to join the Droid nation finally. I have a question about saving pictures off the internet. I know to long click and save it , but the issue im having is, is that i cant view it. Would it be the task killer i have that is stopping something from working or am i doing something wrong.
    It downloads the image just fine but it wont let me view it. Is it hidden some where i dont know of,,Help please! I have the Sprint EVO.

    Some pictures can't be saved... Its a copyright thing...

    EDIT: Also read up on task killers and read why they are not necessary...

    Even if it's not related to the problem, remove Task Killer now and save yourself some minor heachaches in the future.

    Should pop up in your gallery under downloads. It should also reside in sd\downloads as well.

    Open Gallery. There will be a folder ALL Downloads.

    They are in there on the SD card

    Download something first, then it will appear. Same as how there is no favorites folder until you mark a pic as a favorite, and no tapatalk folder until you download a pic using tapatalk.

    Sorry, just saw you had already download stuff. Wonder why it's not showing.

    it does not work.. i can save the image and it will show it as a jpeg image,, but after it is saved, it is a htm file and when you open it its just a bunch of fumble around characters and letters

    Reboot the phone and also the bootloader. Power phone off - hold down power and volume down button until white screen appears. follow steps to reboot phone. Also, after that remove/reinsert battery.

    Sounds like the picture you are trying to download is not available for download some sites and and some pictures just can't be saved and viewed. There is nothing wrong with your EVO just try saving a different picture from a different site.

    Later,
