Insert a Picture in an Email on the iPhone 5

We have previously discussed different ways to customize the behavior of the Mail app on your iPhone 5, such as how to set the default email account, but there are some other helpful things you can learn that more directly affect your iPhone 5 usage. One such piece of information is how to insert an image into a new message while you are writing an email. Most of the simplest ways to share items on your iPhone 5, whether they are pictures or website links, involve going to the item you want to share, then using the Share button associated with that item to do so. But this isn’t always a realistic option. You can often find yourself writing a message, then realizing that you need to insert a picture from your camera roll into the already in-progress message. Fortunately it is possible to do that by taking advantage of a (somewhat) hidden option in the Mail app.

Attach a Picture to an Email on the iPhone 5

 

The use of the word “attach” might be a bit of a misnomer, as the image will actually be inserted directly into the message for many mail clients. But the methodology and process are the important part, as the other option is to start the email with the picture, then work around the already-inserted picture. The end result would be the same, but the steps are different. So read below to learn how to attach a picture to an email that you have already started writing in iOS 6 on the iPhone 5.

 

Step 1: Tap the Mail icon.

Open the Mail app

Step 2: Tap the New Message icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 4: Select the album containing the picture you want to insert.

Step 6: Press the Choose button at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Press the Choose button

Press the Choose button

 

The image should now be shown directly in the body of the email message.

 

Do you dislike seeing “Sent from my iPhone” at the bottom of the emails you receive from iPhone users? If you have an iPhone you can remove this signature and leave people assuming that the message was sent from a computer.
