How to Save images from browser to nexus 7


I find some beautiful pictures from Facebook. I would like to select one from browser and save the file to my tablet, so that I can use it as a background. Is there a trick to done with my nexus 7?

The Android built-in Chrome app and most third-party browsers (Opera, Firefox and Dolphin) are the ability to save any picture you might find on websites directly to your devices.

* Simply long-press on the image using your finger.
* A menu will pop up, select "Save Image". If the picture links to another webpage, you need to open it first.
* After saving it, open gallery app. It is located in your "All downloads" album.

  7. Open Facebook in your browser instead of using the Facebook app.

  12. I just bought a Nexus 7 the other day & I love it but unfortunately I can't save any pics either with the long press. It works on my HTC Desire C most of the time but not on Nexus 7. : (

  13. Okay,so you will see share your photo on google when you full size it, send it on google or facebook accounts or what ever and then save it from there. It worked for me and I am happy cause it did, so please listen and read what I did, and good luck to all of you trying to save your photos!

  14. It may have something to do with being signed in to Google, but I typed my search directly into the chrome browser instead of the search browser on your screen. Long press works just fine for me now.
