    Can you tell us what happens when you try to save the photos? Do you get a notification/error code or notice or does nothing happen? If it's a notice, what does it say?

    If you don't get a notice, it may be that you haven't authorized Facebook to save photos. With the newest iOS (6.0 and higher), you have to specifically authorize Facebook (and other apps) so they can access the Photos. If you don't authorize, they won't even save. To check that Facebook is authorized, go to the Privacy tab in your Settings. Press that line and then press the line labeled "Photos." When that tab appears (it'll show all the apps that are authorized access to your photos) - find the Facebook line and ensure the button/switch is turned ON.

    That should make it so you can save photos from Facebook. If so, yay. If not, holler back and we'll take another try...

    Huh. Are you on iOS 6.x? Cause this is what I see on my iOS 6.1.2-running iPad3:



    I assumed you were on 6.x...my bad. Sorry.

    So, back to the drawing board - what iOS are you on? And, when you are in Facebook, and you press and hold the photo - you don't get a "Save Photo" pop-up? Do you get anything?

    Nah, not a muppet. :) I re-read my post and noticed I missed stating [specifically] that you needed to be in the iPad's Settings app. So, my bad.

    Regardless, I'm glad to hear that things got sorted for you. And, thanks for coming back and telling us your problem got resolved. Always nice to hear back - especially the success stories. :)

    Another way is to view the pic,and then do a screen dump,ie take a photo of it by pressing the home and lock button at the same time. And there it is in yor ipad photos

    And then, using almost any Photo editor app, you can crop the saved picture to get rid of all the 'stuff' around the edge.
