    When a photo on a web page is copied, where does it go? How do I get it to my camera roll? I dont have a problem when there is a "save picture" option. I have Clipboard Pro and I can see my saved photos there, but how do get at them?

    When you copy an image in the Safari web browser, only the URL is copied (not the actual image). You can paste this into any editable text field.

    I don't use Clipboard Pro, but a quick read of the description suggests that when you save image clips from Safari they should show up in the URL category, and while they may look like pictures, they are just links to the pictures on the web.

    If I want a photo from the the web , I save it and it goes to the camera roll. You then can copy it from there. Just did it below.

    Thank you both for that. The problem occurs when the site does not offer the option "save image" I've found a sort of way round it. Take a screen shot and then crop off the Safari bar at the top. It's not very elegant but it gets me there. Anybody any better ideas?
