Tip of the Day: How to email a photo [Beginner]

New to iPhone and want to learn how to send those pictures you have just taken, then here is a tip for you. Once you’ve taken a bunch of photos with your iPhone’s camera here’s how to share them with your family and friends. There are actually 3 different ways you can do so. The first method only works for emailing a single photo. The second and third methods are for emailing multiple photos at once. The third one is ideal for scenarios when you’ve already started an email and want to attach a photo to it. This is especially handy when you’re replying to an email.

How to email a single photo

  • View the photo
  • Tap the arrow on the bottom left corner
  • Select “Email Photo”

How to email 2-5 photos in a single message

  • View the album containing the photo you wish to email
  • Tap the arrow at the upper right corner
  • Tap the photos you wish to email (up to 5)
  • Tap “Share” at the bottom left corner
  • Tap “Email”

Note: if the Share button isn’t working, check to make sure you haven’t chosen more than 5 photos. 5 is the limit.

How to paste 1-5 photos into an existing email

  • View the album containing the photo you wish to email
  • Tap the arrow at the upper right corner”
  • Tap the photos you wish to email (up to 5)
  • Tap “Copy” at the bottom left corner
  • Exit the Photos app
  • Launch Mail app
  • Paste photo into new or existing email message

Bonus tip: if you just want to copy one photo, tap and hold your finger down on it and a “Copy” button will pop up just for that photo.
