The other evening I was having dinner with a friend, a new iPhone user, and she wanted to show me a few pictures …. but she had to find them first. These photos had been sent to her in text messages, and she was going back through the messages to find the photos.
And so, as I watched her scroll back through her messages, the blogging bell went off in my head. “This should be a beginner post!” So here we go.
Here is how you save a photo that you receive in a text message:
Tap on the photo or the arrow area to make the photo larger.
Once you see the larger photo, tap the action arrow up at the top of the phone.
A new screen will pop up with all sorts of choices. Select “save to camera roll”.
That’s all there is.
Now when you want to look back at the photos that you received, just go to your Photos app (the sunflower) and select “camera roll”. The newly saved photos will be there at the end of the photo page.
