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 (probably including you, since you're reading this).

Below I've set out a tutorial with images that shows you exactly how to save a picture from your Facebook timeline to your Mac's hard drive. The tutorial used a Mac running Google Chrome, however, the process remains the same even if you're browsing on Safari or Firefox.

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

2. Now click on the image, wait for it to load. Once it is loaded, right-click on the picture and navigate to 'Save Image As'

3. Now select the location you wish to save to and a file name, and you're done!

Hi, my name is Mike and I made this site to document all the helpful tips and tricks that I've discovered using various Apple Macs and other Apple products over the years, as well as to provide more general guides in relation to using the internet. I've been obsessed with Apple products ever since I could afford my first iPod, and am somewhat of a fanboy (you might have guessed). For me, the simply work without any fuss, issues or errors. I can rely on their products. The build quality is excellent and I even have several, several-year-old Macbooks in my wardrobe that are still humming along fine (just a bit slower). You can contact me personally using the form on this page.

  1. I used to right click on a photo in Facebook, then click on option “save to IPhoto”. Very simple. Now way too many things with Apple have gotten very complicated and I’m frustrated with it all. Considering being done with Apple.
