How Do I Attach Images in iPhone Mail?

By Lynn Holmgren

With iPhone Mail you can keep in touch 24/7, sending text and photos from the palm of your hand. Attaching images in iPhone Mail involves a few more steps than a regular email message, but you can be sure to keep connected in a whole new way. Use your iPhone to attach an image of where you would like to meet up with your friends or send a candid family portrait to a loved one who was unable to make the event.

Step 1

Select a photo from your iPhone photo library and tap on it to open it.

Step 2

Make the controls visible by tapping the opened image.

Step 3

Tap the control on the left hand side of the screen to show the menu bar. Select "Email Photo."

Step 4

Tap on the "To:" field and type the recipient's email address.Tap on the "CC/BCC" field to copy additional contacts. Change your "Sent From:" address by tapping on it and typing in another address. Alternatively, select the saved account from which the email will be sent by tapping on the “CC/Bcc, From:” line and then again on the "From" field.

Step 5

Give your email a title by tapping "Subject." Tap above the photo in the body of the email to add description or a message.

Step 6

Tap "Send" to send the email with image to the recipient.

Tips & Warnings

  • To select a default mail account, go to "Open Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Default Account." Select the mail account you want from within this preference, and it will be set as the default, meaning all emails will automatically be sent from it.
