Facebook is a wonderful website that connects you with your loved ones and the world. More often than not, you come across some very interesting picture, image or photo on Facebook, that you wish to save or store with you. Downloading a photo from Facebook while using computer is very easy. There is always option of downloading it or “save the image” but it is not that straight forward when you are using Facebook on mobile.
As most of us have started using smart phones to access internet, we spend more time browsing Facebook through mobile than the computer. And here comes the problem. Suppose you come up with an amazing photo on Facebook which you would like to save or share on your own page. But, the official Facebook app for android smart phones does not give you the option of downloading it. So what can be done?
Lets see in this tutorial how to download Facebook photos to android phone. Remember we cannot use official Facebook app for this purpose.
Open a web browser in your android phone, preferably Chrome.
Open Facebook.com in the browser. Since you are using it on mobile, it will automatically open the mobile version of Facebook.
Enter your login credentials.
Now go to the image. There are two ways to download the photo from Facebook.
- Press down on a picture until a menu pops up. Tap on “Save Image” in the menu. Then tap “OK.” The picture will be downloaded to “Download” folder in Gallery.
- Second way is to click on the “View Full Size” option under the image. Clicking on this, will download the picture to Download folder in the gallery. This trick is observed in Chrome browser.
And that’s it. You are done. Enjoy the images. Ciao 🙂
