    Default how 2 save pics from facebook 2 ur phone

    I searched for this to see if it was already discussed somewhere & nothing came up.

    I used to be able to download pics from my facebook & save them to my blackberry to be used as wallpaper or to just save them to the phone.

    I cant figure it out on my DInc. Is it possible?

    I was trying to figure it out in the browser but I don't see how.

    When I'm on the page with the picture I want, I go into menu>more but I don't see anything about saving a picture.

    When I go into menu>more>settings there is nothing there.

    Can you point me in the right direction?

    You need to long press over the image to copy or save it.

    I have the same question - for an LG Optimus phone. The "long press" method does work I think on pics that are attachments on email, but not FB pics !!

    We have found that a long press on FB pics just enlarges the pictures

    After you long press you should get options to save the image and even set as wallpaper.

    What I did was I tapped the little options by the Home button on my phone and then I tapped on Share. I tapped whatever messenger I was using and then I had it sent to my phone. I just typed in my number and it sended it to my phone. Then, I tapped and hold the picture and saved it to my SD card. Hard to explain.

    Well since were necroing this I wanna post my findings. Go to android market, and download the google app "Androify" now in your facebook app the one you have to download not HTC sense version when you click on a picture to view it hit menu. theres an icon that says "set as" when you click it it will give you an option "Gallery Photo" with the same icon as the "Androify" app. click that and it will dl it to your gallery. I erased the "Androify" app from my phone and the option was no longer there. then I re installed it and it was back again. See if it works for you. I have the new facebook timeline not sure if that affect it, but it shouldn't.

    There is an app that lets you Save via the Share function. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Dcuc2F2ZWFzIl0.

    im using galaxy s3. It doesnt work in facebook app but if you use the browser (on your phone - I realise some of you are still confused) , tap the image and there should be a download option. This worked for me

    As somebody said before all you have to do in order to save time and all these steps is download the app Androidify... once its installed you long press on the picture and hit "set as" and then it says "Gallery Photo" with the Androidify icon on it. You hit that and the picture is saved to your gallery, simple as that.

    The OP might be using Facebook Messenger, none of these work with that. There's no share option, and only a delete option on long press.

    I have a nexus 4 and the long press option works in messaging but not on Fb pics, so I just Clicked on share than hit the messaging icon and texted it to my own number, than did the long press method where you press and hold the picture and it gives you the option to save it, no app required

    Ah.. Got it.. You juz have to click on the "view larger size" option shown just below the image when you open it. Post clicking, download automatically starts...

    >Those who weren't able to download the pics, try this.. I'm pretty sure, its surely gonna work, atleast on Jelly bean... Yippie..
