When you press and hold on the picture...it does not give you an option to save the image?  Also for the keyboard issue...go into settings/application manager(it may also say apps/manage apps).  At the top scroll over and select all.  Scroll down and find messaging and tap on it.  If you have an option to clear data and force stop then select them(it wont delete anything).  Once done go back in the list and see if you also have anything that says keyboard or android keyboard and do the clear data/force stop on that also.

ok i was able to save the photos and i want to thank you for letting me know there was another way to save them. i usually just hit the option button to hit save attachment. but i tried the keyboard thing and it didn't do anything plus i could not find keyboard or android keyboard in the list

Hmm...if you are still having the keyboard issue, do the same steps but in the list find where it says messaging or text message and do the clear data/force stop and see if that works!

The issue is in the touch feedback settings which we can't modify.  Make sure when long pressing you stay perfectly still and the sub menu will pop up.  It takes a bit longer than it used to.
