Default Saving attachments in sms messages

Since upgrading a few days ago to 4.0.3, my GTI9100 wont let me save attachments from received text messages. Previously I would click the photo then hit menu and would have the option attachments/save -or something like that.
Now when I hit menu nothing happens, no pop up menu or anything. (Menu works in other screens just not when attachment is open)
I am hoping it is just something I have missed in settings as I am still getting used to the upgrade.
Can anyone help, in layman's terms please.
thank you

Long press the picture, a pop up will appear and select "Save attachment".

Try the long press else where because Android uses the long press regularly.

Thank you JayJ; it worked.
I had only been trying with the pic at full screen,which wouldn't work;when I did it just in the message screen as you said with long press it worked perfectly.
Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

NP, your welcome!

Don't be afraid of clicking the applaud button in my Profile (left of my posts) though! lol

If your using the stock Gallery app then it should appear there in the downloads folder, if your using a file explorer then this is the file path...

/sdcard/downloads
