How to E-mail Photos from Your iPad

Part of the fun of taking photos is sharing those images with others. It’s easy to share photos stored on your iPad by sending them as e-mail attachments, and you can do it from within the Photos app. Follow these steps to do just that:

  1. Tap the Photos app icon in the Dock on the Home screen.

  2. Tap the Photos tab and locate the photo you want to share.

  3. Tap on the photo to select it and then tap the Sharing icon (it looks like a box with an arrow jumping out of it).

    The menu appears.


  4. Tap the Email Photo option.

  5. In the e-mail message form that appears, make any modifications you want in the To, Cc/Bcc, or Subject fields. You can also tap within the body of the message and add more text.


  6. Tap the Send button and the message and photo go on their way.

You can also copy and paste a photo into documents, such as those created in the Pages word processor app that you can purchase for about $9.99. To do this, press and hold a photo in Photos until the Copy command appears. Tap Copy, and then in the destination app, press and hold the screen and tap Paste.
