    Guessing here, but have a look at Settings/Privacy. Since iOS 6, apps need your permission to access your camera roll. You may have denied this, and now need to enable it manually.

    What app are you trying to save an image from? As Kevin has said, make sure that the app appears in the list in the privacy settings, and is turned on. See below:

    Have you tried to restart your iPad and try again?

    Or, maybe even a reset...by pressing the home and power switch together until it shuts down. Sometimes these immediate fixes along with adjusting the privacy settings will do the trick.

    Anything, my photos, image from the web, it just says image save failed. It wanted to save to a specific place and I mistakenly denied it. Ever since then failed.

    I think you may be heading for a reset here. This doesn't sound right at all. The only place images can be saved is the camera roll, so if something is out of whack, it could take the heavy equipment to get control back.

    Settings/General/Reset/Reset All Settings.

    Use with caution. You won't lose any apps or data, but you'll have to input all of your stuff, like wifi passwords etc.

    OK, BUT before you do that, make sure you do a backup. If anything has gone wrong with the hardware, they will likely replace it on the spot, and you will lose your data.


    This brings us to another consideration. Normally, you would set up a replacement iPad from the backup of your old one. This MAY not work for you, since you could have something screwed up in your settings. The bad setting will also transfer to the new one, so here's where you are hoping that you do have a hardware fault, or something that the Apple Store can fix.

    So any data you can move to a safe place should be moved, so that you can set up any new iPad as a new device, and then manually transfer your data back onto it. Purchases won't be a problem. You can simply download them again.

    Good luck.
