How To Video: Save Web photos on an iPad1:35 /
Learn how to use the Apple iPad's Safari Web browser to save photos from Web sites, send them in e-mail, or use saved images as screen wallpaper.
Hey, I'm Donald Bell and today I'm going to show you how to save images on to an iPad using the built-in Safari web browser. The Internet is a funny place and you're bound to find some photo or online comic that you'll want to save for later, e-mail to a friend, or use as your iPad's wallpaper. Here's how to do it. First, open the Safari web browser and find an image you want to save. Tap and hold the image and you should see options for saving or copying the image. If you select Save, the image will be stored in your photo library where you can access it anytime you want even when you're offline. If you select Copy, the image will be stored temporarily in the internal memory. You can then create an e-mail and tap and hold in the e-mail body until you see an option for Paste. To set a web image as your wallpaper, select Save From Safari, then go into Settings, Brightness and Wallpaper, and you'll see the images currently used for your lock screen and home screen. Tap them and you'll see a directory of all your photos and then tap Save Photos and you should be able to find the image you saved off of Safari. When you select the image, you can resize it and then set it as the wallpaper for either your home screen or lock screen or both. That's it. That's how to send and save photos from the web on an iPad. For CNET.com, in Donald Bell.
