    I'm new to all this jargon so please be kind! I want to be able to save pictures from the internet on my phone when I am browsing the internet on my phone. For example, say I am on a website and I see a picture I like how do I save it to my phone? You can't click save as anywhere, can you? Is what I'm wanting to do called taking a screenshot? Is that what's it's called on the ipod touch when you click the two buttons and it saves it? If so, I'll go to that thread.
    Oh, also, when would I use the footprint widget? Does that just save a bunch of pictures for easy viewing? I am so new to all of this!

    I think facebook doesn't directly link to the picture files like normal html.

    So then how do I do it? Should I just do the screenshot thing everyone is talking about? I am still so confused on how to even do that even after reading the other threads. And nowhere does it say how to take a screenshot even once you've done all that! Ugh! This is difficult!

    You are not going to be able to save any picture you see. Some are designed to prevent you from copying it.

    Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but footprints is a geo-tagging feature for pictures. It will save location data for the pictures you take with your phone.

    I don't think the OP was looking for an app to save pics TO face book.. but a way to save pics that they find on face book to their phone.
