How to Attach Photos and Videos to Emails on an iPhone or iPad

Three Methods:

You can attach images to your email messages on your iPhone or iPad either through the Mail app or the Photos app. These images will appear in the body as in-line images, but can still be downloaded by your recipient as an attachment. If you are using iOS 9 or later, you can attach image files that you have stored in your iCloud Drive or other cloud storage service.

Steps

Using the Mail App

  1. Compose a new message in the Mail app.You can insert images into your message using the Mail app. This is essentially the same thing as attaching the image. The images will appear in-line in the message body.
  2. Place your cursor where you want the messages to appear in the body.You can insert the messages anywhere in the body. If you want them to appear as more traditional attachments, place them at the end of the message.
  3. Tap the cursor to open the menu.You'll see the "Select," "Select All," and "Paste" options.
  4. Tap the arrow on the right side of the menu.You'll see additional options appear. You won't need to do this on an iPad.
  5. Tap"Insert Photo or Video."This will open a list of your photo and video albums.
  6. Find the photo or video that you want to attach.You can browse through all of the albums on your Camera Roll.
  7. Insert the photo or video.Tap the photo or video and then tap "Choose." This will add the image or video to the message.
    • You can insert up to five images into a single email messages, or a single short video clip.
  8. Send the message.After you're finished adding images, you can send the message as you normally would. You'll be prompted to either compress the images or send them in their original quality. If you're using a mobile connection, you may want to reduce the quality to save data.

Using the Photos App

  1. Navigate to the album that contains the photos you want to attach.You'll be able to attach up to five images.
  2. Tap "Select" to enable multiple selection mode.This will let you select more than one image.
  3. Tap each image that you want to attach (up to five).Each image you tap will have a checkmark on it. You are limited to five images for a single email message.
  4. Compose and send the message.Once you've added the images, you can enter the recipient(s), create a subject, and type the body. When you send the email, you'll be prompted to either compress the images or send them in their original size. If you're worried about your data usage, you may want to pick one of the compressed options.

Attaching Photos or Videos Stored in iCloud (iOS 9)

  1. Open the Mail app and compose a new message.iOS 9 introduced the ability to add attachments from iCloud and other cloud storage services. You can attach any type of file, including photos and videos.
  2. Place your cursor where you want the attachment to appear.Your attachment will be included in-line in the body. Whether or not it appears in-line or at the bottom of the message depends on the recipient's mail client.
  3. Tap the cursor to open the Editing menu.You'll see a few options appear above the cursor.
  4. Tap the right arrow in the menu.This will display some additional options. You won't need to do this on an iPad, as all of the options fit on the screen.
  5. Tap"Add Attachments."A new window will appear, displaying the contents of your iCloud Drive.
  6. Find the image file that you want to attach.You can attach any image file that you have stored on your iCloud Drive. Simply tap a file to attach it to your message.

    Perhaps you aren't giving it enough time. You have to wait until the video has completely been transferred to the email. There should be a bar indicating the process. Then you can send it.
    Thanks!
