How to Save Web Pictures on the iPad

You can capture most pictures you come across on a website when you are surfing the web with Safari on your iPad. However, be mindful of any potential copyright violations, depending on what you plan to do with the images. To copy an image from a website with Safari, follow these steps:

  1. Press your finger against the image.

  2. Tap the Save Image button that appears, as shown in the figure (or tap Copy, depending on what you want to do with the image):

    • Saved images end up in your Photos library (Saved Images on an iPad; Camera Roll on an iPad 2 or third-generation iPad), from which they can be synced back to a computer.

    • If you tap Copy instead, you can paste the image into an e-mail or as a link in a program, such as Notes.

  3. In some cases, typically advertisements, you also see an Open button or an Open in New Tab button, which takes you to the ad image.

    Hold your finger against a picture in Safari to save it to the iPad.
