How to save pictures from the internet on a Samsung Galaxy S2

We've all seen pictures online that we like and we want to keep. Using a Samsung Galaxy S2 this is incredibly simple and this guide will show you how to take the images you see on the web and download them directly to your phone. Firstly you'll obviously need to find a picture you want to use and go to the webpage with that image, for the sake of this example we're using this websites own article on taking screen captures with a Galaxy S2 (see the screen shot to the right).

When you find the image you need to hold your finger on it for a second or two before being given a contextual menu like the image on the left of the screen. You will need to scroll down this list to "Save image" and then select it.

To find the image on your phone you will need to open up your "Gallery" app and you should find the image in a folder called "download".
