Tap and hold the image until you see the following menu come up. Tap Save Image.


If you’re on a home page of a site, you get a larger menu. Tap Save Image.


Now from the Home screen, to view the images you saved, just tap Apps. Then tap Device. A list of all installed applications appears. Tap Gallery.


A list of thumbnails of the images you saved appears. Just tap any one of them to see it full size.


The Gallery apps lets you zoom in and out on the images you saved.


Tap the menu button to get other basic features to rotate, crop or create image slide shows.


The Gallery app is basic and there other other image-tweaking apps available. But to save and display basic images – Gallery works just fine.

    I have a Kindle Fire HD, and I tried this even though the setup is different, and it did not work. Was it supposed to work for an HD too or just the Fire?
