    Can someone please help ,My I pad 2 has stopped saving photos ,or rather has become selective .
    It won't save photos from Facebook ? When I hold my finger on the screen it does ask ,I click save
    Photo and nothing ? Unless its saving them in another location other than my photo album. The Safari
    Link saves them ok?
    Any help would be appreciated .
    Thanks; Mick

    Have you checked the Camera Roll in your Photos app? this is where the photos should be saved.

It is likely that you will find a thread containing an answer to your question, but if not, then by all means, post your question.

    Heya Goofy8275

    It's ok now . There was some security thing in Settings for Facebook that had to be turned on. I didn't realize I switched it of ,
    Or it's something new in the new OS.
    Thanks again .

    Yes. This is the new privacy setting at work. You have to allow apps to access your camera roll. They can't just go there until you have given them permission.
