    Default How to Move email Picture Attachment to Gallery

    New to Android and HTC One. I cannot figure out how to move a picture attached to an email to Gallery. There must be a way to do something so simple, but I am stymied.

    Just download it and it should save it to storage then go to Gallery then go to My Photos then go to Downloads.

    Hmm well if you hold down on the photo it gives you the option to "Move To" you might try that.

    when I hold down the photo I only receive a share or share all option. The choice to move to is grayed out and not available.

    That is the problem of android system, unlike iphone, all photos go to my album. This is good for some people. U can download file explorer to move the files.

    I would disagree that "this is a problem with Android." Just the opposite. Android lets you create and access and use separate directories (folders) in your storage area, instead of lumping everything together and not allowing apps to cross boundaries. But, with great power comes great responsibility. ;-)

    Go to the Play store and download one of the many file explorer apps. "ES File Explorer" is a popular one. There are others. With a file explorer app installed, you can then move files to where ever you want. In the case of email attachments, they are downloaded to your phone's storage into the directory (folder) called "Download". Move the pic file you want from the Download folder to the folder called "DCIM" and then either leave it in that folder or put it into one of the folders inside that folder, or make a new folder in that folder called something like "MyFavEmailAttachedPics" or whatever. From then on, you will have the pic in your Gallery just where you want. :-)

    When you download the attachment it does give you the option to move the photo to another folder that is on the device so there should not be a issue moving photos around on the device. If the "move to" option is not showing up either your not in the right area or there something else going on with the device.

    I've had the same issue. Sorry but this should be much easier to do without loading more stuff on the phone. Should be able to tap any image and have the option to save to G Drive, send or share by email, etc. Just a bad design and i love android and i love my HTC One but this is a fix that's needed.

    I agree with some of you on this. I downloaded an app to handle downloads, but am surprised I had to.

    I just want a download folder/icon on my home screen. Photos I download should automatically go into my photo gallery IMO. Videos should go in there place, PDF's etc...

    Do any of these apps let you put a direct download folder/widget/icon on your home page???

    I just use the "All photos" album and it shows your newest photos at the bottom... regardless where they came from.. much like the iPhone did. It makes it easier to me than on my Samsung s4 when you would have to go to whatever album it's in to find the file. you just have to click the top right button - show/hide albums then check the box beside it.

    my problem is that all the photos in my emails are being downloaded automatically so I have a bunch of work logos from people's signature. I can't figure out how to disable this feature.
