    Oh sorry misunderstood! If you find it I'd love to know cos there have been the odd time that that would be useful.

    One way to do it, is when viewing the picture using the Facebook application, is to share the picture. Then I just email it to myself using my gmail address, and then open gmail on phone and download photo.

    Stupid. Yes. Does it work? Yes.

    Maybe I'm being stupid now but how do you share pics that aren't yours but say some that a friend has put on and you want a copy of. Can't see share option on there:thinking:

    oh i c what u mean.

    I was able to save a photo from another person's album.
    But not use the facebook app, use the browser and go to touch.facebook.com
    Then when viewing the photo, long press on the photo and the save image option pops up.

    Sir you are damn right! Liking that lots. Thanks cos I hadn't even given browser access a thought, plus it seems to give me access to friends albums that weren't on the app version. Hurrah!
