I can't save a picture from e-mail to photos on my new iphone 5S, help!

When I send or receive photos from e-mail and I want to save them to my photos app on my new iphone 5S, it does not work when I push the arrow and save image button.
I can tap on the photo, then push on save image, which is a whole extra step.
Why is this such a problem? my iphone 4G worked better than this one, help!

Hey Sloanfromga!
I believe the user guide for your new iPhone can provide some insight on this question:
Share photos and videos - iPhone User Guide
http://help.apple.com/iphone/7/#/iph3d2676c9
Save or share a photo or video you receive. 
Email:  Tap to download it if necessary, then touch and hold the item to see sharing and other options.
Text message:  Tap the item in the conversation, then tap .
Photos and videos that you receive in messages or save from a webpage are saved to your Camera Roll album.
Thanks for coming to the Apple Support Communities!
Regards,
Braden

  • HT1694 Why can't I set up my msn mail on my iPad or new iPhone

    I am sick of trying all different things to set up my email.  Keep getting errors about pop3 invalid username & password. 
    Got a brand new iPhone today and I have the same issue, it's the correct username & password I am using.
    People say you can't go wrong with apple, but had no issues with my android devices

    Try using Google to find your answer.

  • TS3989 Cannot get pictures from camera roll to photo stream on my iPhone

    I have tried everything.  I have picture taken about 2 weeks ago on my iPhone that I can't get from the camera roll to the photo stream  I want them on my iPad  through the upload to iCloud. I have tried closing the camera, am on wifi and have settings set correctly and have my iPhone charging.  And then I just added a picture took all the steps and this picture DID get to photo stream.  Hoe do I get the other groupmof photos there?

    Only pix taken after photo stream is turned on are added to photo stream (as well as camera roll). Older pix are not.
    To get the older ones to a computer, sync using USB. You can also take a screen shot in the device when viewing an older picture (press home and power buttons together, quickly).  This will add the photo to the stream, but the disadvantage is that the resolution will be that of the screen, which is much less than the original picture.

  • Window users can't save my pictures i do sent by email

    Hello,
    Since i upgrade to OS X Lion Window users can't save photo's i do sent them by email. Before the upgrade it was never a problem.
    They do receive the mail. When they open it they do see the photos but not as an attatchment. So no jp(e)g attachments...just the photo in the mail.
    But whatever they do or try they just can't save the pictures i do mail them.
    I also selected "Sent Windows used attatchemnt"....and all other things..nothing helps.
    Who can help since i need to mail many pictures each day to window users.
    I would really be thankfull.

    It's a known issue with embedded images in Outlook.
    It comes up with Mail on Lion cause Apple has decided to redesign Mail more close to the mail standards for better compatibility with the majority of mail applications.
    Unfortunately Windows Outlook handle mail in a more proprietary way and not the way almost all other mail applications will do.
    A workaround for Windows Outlook users is described in the knowledge base article behind the following link.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917120
    A workaround for Apple users is only to put the file in a compressed folder (e.g. ZIP) prior of attaching to the mail.

  • When I had IEXP. I would save a picture from email to My Pictures. With Firefox it doesn't work. Saved pic shows a box w/IEx & no pic.

    When I save a picture from my email to My Pictures the picture doesn't appear. A box appears in My Pictures that shows Internet Explorer (E) and no picture of what I tried to save. The jpeg also wasn't at the bottom drop down box. I could name the picture but it didn't transfer over. I use to have Internet Explorer when the pictures were put into the My Pictures but have now gone to using Firefox. Did changing to Firefox cause me not to be able to use My Pictures for the email pictures I'm trying to save?

    Which method are you using to save the picture? Typically it works to right-click and use Save Image As.
    If that option is not available or does not work, is the image a link (for example a small thumbnail image linked to a larger version)? In that case, you might try Ctrl+clicking the link to open the image in a new tab and see whether you can then save it successfully.

    How do you save a picture from email to the iPhoto?

    Click and hold on the Save button, and a menu appears, listing each attached file’s name along with a Save As button. Select any individual file, and you’ll save just that attachment to disk. But the really nice feature is the final menu item—Add to iPhoto. That’s right; with one button click-and-hold, you can add all of a message’s attached images to iPhoto.

  • I need to save some pictures from iPhoto to a SDHC photo card for a digital frame and was wondering if there is a way to shrink or compress file size for each picture as I have already cropped the pictures? Thank you

    I need to save some pictures from iPhoto to a SDHC photo card for a digital frame and was wondering if there is a way to shrink or compress file size for each picture as I have already cropped the pictures? Thank you

    Yes, you do this when you export the images from the Library.
    File -> Export
    in the Size section, you don't need images larger than the frame size, so you can specify that and in the Jpeg Quality you can select the amount of compression used.
    This User Tip

    has details of the options in the Export dialogue.
