How to Send Photos From Your Phone to Your Email

By Thomas McNish

Technology is evolving to the point where we can take information from one source and send it to another without having to use CD's or disks to transfer it. One of the advantages of this technology is that you can take pictures with your phone and send them to your e-mail. After that, you can store them on your computer or send them to friends and family.

Things You'll Need

  • Cell phone
  • Computer with Internet access
  • E-mail address

Step 1

Get into your cell phone's menu, and go to the gallery where you store your photos.

Step 2

Scroll through your pictures and find the one that you want to send to your e-mail address. Click it so that it becomes the only photo you're looking at. There shouldn't be any other photos on your screen at this point.

Step 3

Select the "Options" button to open a list of activities you can do with this picture. There might be an option to delete it, zoom in or zoom out. Look for the option that says "Send," then click it once you find it.

Step 4

Go through the "Send" options to find "e-mail." There may be an option to send via Bluetooth or maybe even an option to send it to another folder. But you want the option that will allow you to send it to your e-mail address.

Step 5

Type in the e-mail address after clicking "send" and then "e-mail." Click "Send" when you're finished typing in the necessary information and wait for the screen to tell you that it successfully sent your picture. If your picture wasn't successfully sent and you know you have service, your phone plan may not allow picture messages. In that case, you would need to call your service provider.
