Default Saving pictures off of Facebook

While surfing through pictures on Facebook I'd like to save some of them and use them for my picture widget. I can't seem to get them to save though. I've tried long pressing and the menu button.

Any ideas?

Best solution I have come up with for this is to download a screen capture app, and then an image cropping app.

Which apps do you recommend for the screen capture and image cropping?

Thanks

I've used Screenshot It, it's $2.99 and you have to be rooted to use it, but it captures your screen and you can crop it all via the app.

I use Drocap2 for screen shots (free):
drocap2 for root users - Android app on AppBrain

I use Photoid for photo editing including cropping (free):
Photoid - Android app on AppBrain

drocap2 and shootme are both free - no need to pay for a program to capture your phone's screen.

Instead of using the fb app, go to facebook via the web, you can save pics that way.
