How To Save Photos From Text Message On Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

Did you know that it’s possible to send photos via text message? Most people now use IM messaging apps like Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp, but in some cases, good old traditional text messages can’t be beaten.

This particular guide is designed for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, but it will also apply to most other smartphones, especially other Galaxy smartphones.
