How do I save photos sent via text messages or e-mail?

If someone sends you an interesting photo in a message, you can save it directly to your Photos app. Here's how you do it:

Here's how to save a photo from a text message received on your iPhone:

  1. Open Messages and tap on the conversation with the image.
  2. Tap and hold on the photo you want to save.
  3. Tap Save. Your image will be saved in your Photos app.



Here's how to save photos you receive from e-mails:

  1. Open Mail.

  2. Tap and hold on the image in the e-mail message.

  3. Tap on Save Image to save it to your device's Photos album.

You can also copy images from an e-mail message and paste them straight into the body of a new e-mail without having to save it on your device. Simply tap and hold on the image, tap on Copy when the menu comes up, open a new e-mail message, tap on the body of it, and tap on the Paste option when it appears.
