They are talking about saving while preserving the format of the conversation. If you want to copy and paste, you can only copy the actual text of the messages, but not any information about who sent each and how many people were in the chat.
That means you will later have to reconstruct the thread before you save. But the problem with copy and paste of messages is that it does not include the sender or the recipient. Screenshots are the only way to truly preserve iMessages in any meaningful way, as goofy as that is. Convert to PDF or Doc x. BTW does anyone call iPhone messages as simply messages, iMessages, or text messages?
I never know what to call them, I call them text messages still, but iMessage is theprotocol. Name required. Mail will not be published required.

The way you send video and photos has also changed a bit in the iOS 8 Messages app — the new interface is pretty similar to that for audio messages. The other new way to send a photo or video instantly is to tap and hold on the camera icon and get the radial menu with another camera icon up top and a video button to the right.
Slide your finger up to the camera option and it will take a photo and send it as soon as you release your finger from the screen. There is no previewing your photo this way, so be careful!
Do the same thing for video — slide your finger to the video recording icon to the right, then make your funny faces or record whatever video you want. You can also flick up and send the video without previewing. If you want to switch to the rear camera, tap and hold the camera icon until the radial menu appears and then let go. Tap the switch camera icon in the upper right, then go back to the radial menu to take a photo or record a video as above.
Your iPhone will record your message and then let you preview it or cancel it by hitting the X button to the left, though in my testing, sometimes the audio just sent, while other times it allowed me to cancel.

You can also set how long audio messages will last before they expire there.
The main list interface in Messages remains fairly unchanged, with a Details button where the Contacts button used to be.
