How to Email Photos Using a Mobile Phone


  •          Touch “Menu” on your Android-powered cellphone. The icon is located at the bottom of the screen.
  •          Tap the “Gmail” icon to launch the email application. The application is included on all Android phones.
  •          Press the “Menu” button on the phone and touch “Compose” from the options that appear at the bottom of the screen.
  •          Touch the “To” field and enter the email address to which you want to email a picture. When you touch the field, an on-screen keyboard appears at the bottom of the screen.
  •          Press the “Menu” button on the phone again and touch “Attach.” Touch the photo you want to send to attach it to the email.
  •          Touch the “Send” icon at the upper right of the screen. A confirmation message is displayed when the email is sent.


  •          Open your iPhone's Photos app.
  •          Choose the album containing the photos you want to send. If you took photos using your iPhone, they'll be in an album up top called "Camera Roll."
  •          Tap the button in the upper righthand corner that looks like a rectangle with an arrow coming out of it. (This will initiate edit mode)
  •          Tap the photos you want to send. You can only send five by email at one time.
  •          Tap the action you want to take from the bar at the bottom. In this scenario, you'll want to tap the Share button.
  •          You may be presented with a few options. If you are, choose Email.
  •          Your iPhone will now compose a new email message and, within a few seconds, you'll see your photos added to the body of the message. Up top, enter the name or email                 address of the person you want to send the photos to. Also enter a subject line for the email if you'd like. When you're done, tap the Send button.
  •          Before the message sends, you'll be asked what size you want the emailed photos to be. Small is very small but takes up very little data. Medium and large are both good sizes for viewing but take up more data. This means they may take longer to send. Actual size means your iPhone will not shrink your photos at all and send the original copies. This is what you want to choose if the person you're emailing is going to print out copies of the photos. Make your selection and your iPhone will start sending the message. It may take some time, but eventually, you'll hear a "woosh" sound indicating that your message has been sent.
