I searched the forum but couldn't find specifically what I was looking for. I saw a picture on twitter and wanted to save it on my Mac...

How do I go about saving it? I tried the tap with 2 fingers etc.

You could drag it directly off the page and into iPhoto, onto the desktop, or an open Finder window. But right-clicking it should bring up a context menu with a "Save" option.

Right click photo and from the drop down menu click save to downloads, then you can do with it what you like re saving locations.
