How to Attach Several Pictures in an Email on the iPad

By Anne Hirsh

Email attachments operate differently on the iPad than on a computer. If you want to attach multiple photos to a single document you can do so from directly within the "Photos" app rather than from the "Mail" app. If you have trouble mailing multiple photos try updating your iPad to the latest version of the iOS software. This can correct glitches that prevent you from mailing your photos or update your features on your iPad if your system is out of date.

Step 1

Tap the "Photos" app to launch it.

Step 2

Select the "Photos" tab to access all of your iPad photos or select "Albums" and choose an album if all of the photos you want to email are collected in the same photo album.

Step 3

Tap the "Action" button in the upper right corner of the iPad's screen. The options to email, copy or print will appear in the upper left corner.

Step 4

Tap each photo you want to include in the email, then choose "Email."

Step 5

Enter the email recipient's address in the "To" field when the email screen pops up. You can enter multiple email addresses as well. If the recipients are already in your address book they should appear in a selection list when you type the first few letters of their addresses or names. If not you will need to type in the full email address.

Step 6

Add a subject line, if desired, and tap "Send" to send your email with multiple photos attached.
