Hi everyone,
Maybe my searches so far weren't thorough enough, but I tried the web and this forum and couldn't find an answer, so here it goes:
How can I save a facebook, or for that matter any internet photo, to my desire s?
I've read about touching the picture for a few seconds after which a menu of some sort should appear, but this doesn't seem to work...

Has anyone got any ideas? I can't imagine i'm the first to encounter this matter.

Thanks a lot!

Regards,
Bart

...

....
That works on my Desire.

e.g. if I browse to google.com, then hold my finger down on the Google logo (make sure you don't move it around), then I get a menu listing:
Open
Open in new Window
Bookmark link
Copy link URL
Share link
Save link
Save Image
View image
Set as wallpaper
Share image

If the image doesn't contain a link, then you won't see the first 6 items, but you will still see:
Save Image
View image
Set as wallpaper
Share image

Are you using the built in web browser?

Hey,
Thanks for your response, I've tried out you example.
This does work indeed on web pictures, although only when I watch them on full size.
Facebook photos however do not show the described menu when touched and held...
I'm confused Undecided
That is, when on facebook via the fb app, I haven't tried it yet using the web browser...
I'll get back to you..
Regards,
Bart

Okay I think this topic can be closed with the following conclusion:
The described methods work fine, except for in the facebook app.
When viewing facebook via the standard browser photos can be saved to your phone.

Thanks for the help ric323!
