Picture in Messages

Post by Bob Wiswell » Sat Aug 09, 2014 6:05 pm

I have a message (in Messages) on my iPhone 5c that includes a picture/photo. How can I download the picture to my computer in order to save/print it? I cannot use iCloud as my computer is old and uses Snow Leopard.

The usual way I transfer messages, e-mails and images to my iMac is to use the share button and choose e-mail. Then I e-mail to myself, using an e-mail address that I check on my iMac.

Thanks Stephen. I didn't find a share button in messages, but I was able to place the picture in my Photos folder on the phone-as a result of punching buttons looking for a share button. In the Photos folder I was able to e-mail the photo to myself and that worked.
