Here's a tip included in O'Reilly's upcoming title "iPad: The Missing Manual."
Do you have a bunch of photos someone sent you as file attachments to an email message? Or do you see an image on a web page you want to add to your collection? To save photos to your iPad's Photos program, press your finger on the photo when the iPad displays it.
Wait for a box to pop up with a Save Image button.
Tap Save Image to store a copy of the picture in the Photos > Saved Photos album.
If you have multiple photos attached to an email message, the iPad asks if you want to save them all.

The iPad 2 is faster, lighter, and more versatile than its predecessor, but there's still no printed guide to using its amazing features. That's where this full-color Missing Manual comes in. Learn how to stream HD video, make video calls, manage your email, surf the Web, listen to music, play games, and maybe even do a little iWork. It's the book that should have been in the box.
