Hi Everyone

I am a new member of this forum and I just got my LG Optimus Black phone. I use it a lot to browse the web. Can anyone please tell me how to download images to the phone from websites? When I am in a website, the phone's menu function does not seem to offer any download option. When I choose "More", there is a "Downloads" selection but it shows download history which is blank at the moment for me because I don't know how to do any downloads. Hope somebody who is an android expert or owner of similar phone could help. Thanks!

Have you tried simply holding your finger down on the image? After you do that, a menu should pop up with options, including to save the image or set it as a wallpaper.

I think this is limited to the FB mobile site. If you download the newest FB app from the market, downloading pictures from that is really easy directly from the phone.

I have had a couple of LG phones and had not run into this problem in the past. I was trying to download grandkids photos from FB and though I found a download option, once downloaded I found that it had not gone to my Gallery as I was use to. I looked in several places without success. I did get to FB via Google and had not, yet, downloaded the FB application. I will do that today and see if it goes into my gallery. Thanks Eric.
