Hitting the “Save” icon on Snapchat and can’t see those pictures on your phone gallery? 

Sucks, doesn’t it?

I understand.

While you may be trying so hard to find these photos in your gallery, you can only see them in the “Memories” section on Snapchat.

Don’t worry – in this blog post, I’ll teach you how you can save your Snapchat pics to your gallery automatically.

At the same time, I’ll teach you how you can save your old Snapchat pics in your “Memories” to your gallery as well.

Without further ado, let me show you how you can do it:

Follow these steps to download/export your old Snapchat Pics and save them to your Gallery in 2022:

To download one or multiple of your old Snapchat pics to your gallery, the first step is to load your Snapchat mobile application.

You can do this by searching “Snapchat” in the search bar or by launching it the way you’re used to.

How to Save Your Old Snapchat Pics to Your Gallery in 2022?

Now, upon launching Snapchat, the next step is to load the “Memories” section. To do this, you need to swipe from the bottom of the screen to the top – which will take you to the memories section.

Under Memories, you can access pictures from Snaps, Stories, Camera Roll, or My Eyes Only.

As we need to download our old Snapchat pics, we’ll select a picture from the “Snaps” section.

Select the picture or video you’d like to export and save to your gallery.

We’ll do it for the first snap in my “Memories” section.

As soon as you load the picture, it’ll expand.

Expore the Snap

When the picture expands, you need to click on the three-dotted vertical line in the top-right corner. As soon as you do, you’ll see the following options:

  • Export Snap
  • Delete Snap
  • Hide Snap (My Eyes Only)
  • Favorite Snap
  • Edit Snap
  • Send Snap

To download this picture, I’ll select “Export Snap” – which is the first option in front of me. 

How to Export Snap to Gallery in 2022?

As soon as I select “Export Snap,” I’ll be asked where I want to share this snap. 

Swipe from right to left on the “Share Elsewhere” screen and you’ll see the “Download” option.

Select “Download” and Snapchat will automatically export the snap and save it to your Gallery.

Congratulations! Mission accomplished!

Now, sometimes, while you try saving the Snapchat pics – they aren’t always saved to the phone gallery yet can only be seen in the “Memories” section.

To save them to the Gallery as well when you select the “Save” option, I’d advise you to read the next section.

Follow these exact steps to save your Snapchat pics to your gallery:

Head Over to Snapchat Settings

To make sure that your Snaps are saved to your gallery in 2022 when you select the “Save” button, you need to change your Snapchat settings. To do it, the first step is to launch Your Snapchat application.

In the top-left corner, click on your Bitmoji – it’s visible on the left of the search icon.

Visit Snapchat Settings

When you select your Bitmoji, you’ll see your Snapchat profile.

Now, in the top-right corner, you need to select the “Settings” icon.

Clicking on it will take you to Snapchat settings.

Select “Memories & Camera Roll” under “Save Destinations”

Now, you’ll see numerous settings options in front of you.

The next step is to scroll down and find the “Memories” option.

You’ll find it in the “Who Can…” section.

This option will be visible below “See My Location” and above “Lenses.”

Click on “Memories.”

Not Able to See Your Snaps in Gallery Even After Saving? Learn How to Save Your Snapchat Pics to Your Gallery in 2022?

Under “Memories,” you can see the “Storage” and “Save Destinations” sections.

Under “Save Destinations,” as you can see my “Save Button” option is set to “Memories.”

This means – even if I click on the Save button, all my snaps will be stored in the Snapchat Memories section. 

To change this, select “Save Button” under “Save Destinations.”

Here, you can see three options:

  • Memories – Upon hitting the Save button, your snaps will be stored in the Memories section.
  • Memories & Camera Roll – Upon hitting the Save button, your snaps will be saved to the Memories section and camera roll.
  • Camera Roll Only – Upon hitting the Save button, your snaps will be saved to your Camera Roll only.

We need to change this from “Memories” to “Memories & Camera Roll.” Or you can even set it to “Camera Roll Only” if you don’t want to save them to your Memories.

Here, we’ll select “Memories & Camera Roll.”

And now, whenever you hit the Save button, you’ll see your pics in your Gallery as well.
