Can anyone advise as to how exactly you go about saving images from a google search now on iPadOS?

On the iPhone which is running iOS 12 you simply long press and get 3 options save image, copy or cancel

However it seems when doing this on the iPad you get different options now:
Open in new tab
Open in new window
Download linked file (downloads the page the image is on doesn’t just download the image itself
Add to reading list
Copy
Share

I cant seem to see any option when clicking on those to save the image?

The issue is that Google is more often linking to the website that image is contained on - you need to long press on an actual image versus what Google is linking to; DuckDuckGo has a nice big view file button which makes it easy to download images from an image search

Why’d they remove it?
