How to save pictures from Facebook to a Mac

Saving pictures from Facebook to your Mac is pretty simple and straightforward, however many people do not know how to do it (including you, since you’re reading this).  Below is the tutorial with images that shows you exactly how to save a picture from your Facebook timeline to your Mac’s hard drive.  The tutorial uses a Mac running Google Chrome on OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion, but the method is pretty much the same for every Mac.


1. Firstly, navigate to the page where the picture is located that you want to download.
