iPad mini: Sharing Photos by E-Mail or iMessage

Part of iPad mini For Dummies Cheat Sheet

On your iPad mini, use the Share button to send photos to a contact without using the Contacts list. You can send pictures via e-mail or iMessage. And you can share a link to something you’re viewing the same way.

  1. In the Photos app, tap Albums at the bottom of the screen.

  2. Tap Camera Roll.

  3. Tap the Select button in the upper-right corner.

  4. Tap the photos to send to your contacts.

    You can select as many as you like, but you can only send 5 at a time via e-mail and 20 at a time via iMessage.

  5. Tap the Share button.

  6. Tap Mail or Message.

    If you’ve selected more photos than allowed, the option Mail or Message icon won’t appear when you tap the Share button. If that happens, tap some of the selected photos — they have a check mark — to deselect them. Now tap the Share button again, and then tap Mail or Message. When you do, the New Message window fills the screen.

  7. Type in the To field.

    Contacts that match what you type will appear. Or, you can tap the + button on the right end of the To field to see an overlay with all of your contacts.

  8. Type a message to go along with the photos. Or not.

  9. When you’re happy with your creation, tap the Send button.
