On the iPhone, how to drag & drop photos from Safari to Photos

techno.rentetan.com – There are several fantastic tips and techniques buried within the Apple iPhone’s iOS software, which you can learn about in our roundup of tips and tricks. However, one that we uncovered on iOS 15 is deserving of its own feature since it is just outstanding.

Did you know you can drag and drop photos into your Photos Library right from Safari? This is not a one-handed tip, so make sure you have both hands ready. However, if you want to add a bunch of photos from Google image search, for example, to your Photos Library right away, we’ll show you how.

How to easily drag & drop photos from Safari to Photos

This isn’t a tip you’ll need every day, but you can’t say it’s not useful. You can hold and drag one image into the corner of your screen, touch on many additional photos, and then drag and drop them all into your Photos Library in one motion, whether you’re looking for hilarious memes on Google Image search or something more practical.

This is how you do it:

  1. On your iPhone, open the Photos app.
  2. On your iPhone, open the Safari app.
  3. Open Safari and navigate to the page with the photos you wish to save to your Photos Library.
  4. Drag one picture into the corner by pressing and holding it.
  5. Continue to hold that image in one hand while tapping on the next image with the other.
  6. Each image you tap will move to the corner with the previous image, forming a stack.
  7. If you have a Face ID iPhone, swipe up from the bottom to load the App Switcher, or double tap the Home Button if you have a Touch ID iPhone. Once you have all the images you want, use the hand that was tapping the images to swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone to load the App Switcher, or double tap the Home Button if you have a Touch ID iPhone.
  8. If you launched them one after the other, the Photos app should appear next to the Safari app.
  9. Release the hold you have on the photographs once the Photos app is open in your Library, and they will appear in your Library automatically.

Of course, this method also works with just one image, so you don’t have to hold down on a photo and then touch ‘Add to Photos’ if you don’t want to, even if it’s probably faster in that case.

It’s worth mentioning that in order to drag and drop several photos into Safari, you must hold the first image and not let go until all of them have been put into the Photos Library, which is why you’ll need two hands or extremely long fingers.
