Move Picture

I have a picture on my iPad that I received as an attachment in an email. How do I move that picture into my photos app on the iPad- or can I move that picture to my photos in the photos app on the iPad?

The iPad is running iOS 10.3.2. I cannot go through my computer because it is old and maxed out with Snow Leopard. So whatever I do, I have to do with my iPad or iPhone. I do have an icloud account and both the iphone and iPad can go there, but I don't see any way to save the attached email picture, or to download it onto the iPad.

Thanks.

I had to look this up:

As of iOS 10, there's a new method for saving images from an email in Mail to the Camera album in Photos.

Touch and hold the image in the email. (On my iPhone 6s, I needed to not touch and press. That yields a different result.)
Hold for a while, and you'll get a panel with options. (It seemed to me that I had to hold a long time.)
One option is to Save Image. It's automatically saved to the Camera album. Of course, then you can move it to another album, or carry out any other function from Photos.

Thanks Stephen, that worked. I didn't have to hold long, but I found that you just need to touch and not press on the picture. I found that one time it didn't seem to want to work and I found I was pressing too hard; I let up and touched again and it went immediately.

That's a problem in the current versions of iOS: learning to distinguish between a touch and hold vs. a touch and press.
