imageYour device lets you share your photos with friends and family in a couple of different ways. The Camera app gives you the ability to e-mail photos (iPhone & iPod touch) or send them inside text messages (iPhone). We've already showed you how to send images through text message (see page 49). Here are a couple of other ways to share photos: 
To e-mail photos from your iPhone:

E-mail your images straight from your device.

1. Open Camera.

2. Tap on the Camera button on the bottom center to take a picture.

3. Tap on the Camera Roll button on the bottom left.

4. Tap on the photo you took. You will see additional commands on the top and bottom of the screen come up.


5. Tap on the Action button on the bottom left (it looks like a box with an arrow coming out of it).


6. Tap on Email Photo. A new e-mail message will open up with the selected photo inserted into the body of the message.

7. Tap on the To: field and insert the recipient's e-mail address.
8.) Tap on the Send button. If the image is large, the device will prompt you to choose among actual or smaller sizes.

To e-mail photos from any iOS device:

1. Open Photos.

2. Tap on Album (iPad/iPod touch) or Photo roll (iPhone) and locate the image you want to send.

3. Tap on the image and then the Action button on the bottom left (it looks like a box with an arrow coming out of it).


4. Tap on Email Photo. A new e-mail message will open up and the photo will neatly jump into the body of the message.

5. Tap on the To: field, and insert the recipient's e-mail address.


6. Tap on the Send button. If the image is large, the device will prompt you to choose among actual or smaller sizes.

To select multiple photos to send in one e-mail from any iOS device:


You may want to e-mail several photos to a friend, but sending one at a time just won't do. Here's how to send multiple photos in a single e-mail message:

1. Open Photos, tap on an Album or Photo Roll.

2. Tap the Action button on the bottom left (iPhone/iPod touch) or top right (iPad) of your screen. The Select Photos screen will come up.


3. Tap on every photo you want to send. When selected, a small check mark will appear on the photo. (Tap on the photo again to deselect it.)

4. To send from an iPhone or iPod touch, tap on Share on the bottom left corner and then tap on Email.

5. To send from an iPad, tap on the Email button in the upper left corner of the screen.

E-mail a photo to your Flickr account


If you have an account with the photo-sharing service, Flickr, you can upload a photo through e-mail. Go to Flickr.com/account/uploadbyemail and get the specific e-mail address you can use to upload your images. Then, follow the steps above to attach an image to an e-mail message; use the Flickr e-mail address in the "To:" field.
