Email iPad iPhone

This brief tutorial will show you how to send emails of the pictures you take with your iPhone or iPad.

  1. Tap the Photos button.
  2. Select the Album that the photo(s) you want to send are in.
  3. Tap the Edit button located in the upper-right corner.
  4. Now tap on the thumbnail of the photo you want to email. Notice that a “red check-mark” has been added to the thumbnail, indicating that it has been selected.
  5. Tap any other photos you would like to attach to the email as well. When you’re ready to send them, tap the Share button located in the bottom-left corner.
  6. Tap the Mail button.
  7. A “compose new email” window will appear with the photo(s) you selected in the previous steps attached to it. Enter the email address (or addressees) of the recipient(s), a subject, and then a message in the body of the email itself. Note: only the To: field actually requires input – the rest is optional.
  8. Tap the Send button to send the photos via email.
  9. You may be prompted to select a size for the images. The smaller the size you select the faster the mail will be to send, but the images will suffer in quality. Unless you’re sending a lot of photos – or they’re particularly large in size – generally you’ll want to select Actual Size
  10. That’s it – the photos have been emailed!
