Key Takeaways

How to Save Snapchat Pictures in Camera Gallery

If you want to save Snapchat pictures to your camera roll automatically, the steps are as follows.

Step 1: Open the Snapchat app and navigate to your profile, which can be reached by tapping your Bitmoji character in the top left part of the screen.

Step 2: Once you’re in the profile screen, press the Settings/gears icon in the top right corner of the screen.

Step 3: In your settings, scroll down and click on Memories. It will be under the My Account heading, which is the first one on the screen, so you won’t need to scroll very far.

Step 4: In Memories, tap on Save Button, and choose Camera Roll to have your gallery as the default location for saving Snapchat pictures. You can also have them automatically saved to both the gallery and your Memories, if you so choose.

As you can see, it’s a quick and easy process that shouldn’t take more than a few seconds to change. It’s also very simple to switch back if you no longer want your camera roll as the destination for saving photos.
