    being cell illiterate a factory reset isn't something i would try.
    i have straighttalk. i had noticed that whenever i googled (using stock browser, i hate chrome) at the bottom of the page was a message about i was getting a modified view as my service was slow. i thought it was odd as i have wifi at home.
    i paid my bill when it was due at approximately 6:30 am. i received a text at 12:30 the same day from straighttalk. it basically said i had gone over the data allowed for the month and were "throttling" me. of course that wasn't the term they used.
    i thought the "google" issue was related to that.

    with so many different phones and carriers? must be a glitch with google.

    All was working fine on the Google App by viewing the image in browser & then tapping on the image to save but this stopped working for me about a week ago.

    HOWEVER by opening Google.com in the Chrome app simply tap on the image & it gives you various options (incl Save Image) - see screenshot.

    I noticed if I click on the thumbnail and enlarge the picture I can't get any options. But if I hold my finger on the thumbnail all options appear and I can save the picture. Also it saves full size.

    Pat, I would like to solve the puzzle... (Wheel of Fortune :D)

    You cannot save pics from a google now search, even if you go to images and hold your finger on the image it will do nothing. You must (unfortunately) re-search within google chrome to have the finger hold = options ability.

    Google needs to fix this, very annoying since I only search with voice these days as they have so successfully taught me to do..

    Welcome to our AndroidForums, Donov*n (would you like to buy an "a"? ;) :p :D).

    I've seen the same behavior that you describe when copying a link from a Google image search (images.google.com), too, although sometimes the text that you copy from the Copy Image Address option is actually the base64 code for the image itself (so it's kind of the image :)).

    If you click on an image and it brings-up the dark-background preview area, you can indeed copy the actual address from the Copy Image Address option without having to actually visit the site (at least for most images anyway).

    Anyway, thanks for the reply and for joining us here at AF :).
