How do I save a picture from e-mail?

E-mail program

EmailNote: When a picture is sent over the e-mail it is sent as an attachment and most e-mail programs and online webmail programs will often display any attachment separate from the actual e-mail message. This means in order to view and save the attached picture you will often have to click the file or an icon such as a paperclip icon to view the actual attachments.

Microsoft Outlook

  1. Open the e-mail with the attached picture.
  2. Right-click on the picture or the icon of the file containing the picture and choose Save As.
  3. This opens a Save Attachment window that allows you to specify where you want to save the file to.

Mozilla Thunderbird

  1. Open the e-mail with the attached picture.
  2. Right-click on the picture or the icon of the file containing the picture and choose Save As or Save Image.
  3. This opens a Save Image window that allows you to specify where you want to save the file to.

Internet e-mail

  1. Open the browser and locate the image or picture you want to save.
  2. Right-click the image and choose the option to Save Picture As, Save Image As, or Save image.
  3. This opens a Save As window. In this window browse to the location you want to save the image to and click the Ok or Save button.
