Are you struggling to attach a picture to an email on your iPhone? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

In this step-by-step tutorial, we will guide you through the process of attaching a picture to an email on your iPhone. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Compose a New Email

To begin, open the Mail app on your iPhone and tap on the compose icon, usually located at the bottom right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Enter Recipient’s Email Address

In the “To” field, enter the recipient’s email address. You can also add multiple recipients by separating their addresses with commas.

Step 3: Add a Subject (Optional)

If you want to add a subject to your email, tap on the subject field and type in a brief description of what your email is about. This step is optional but can be helpful for organizing your emails.

Step 4: Insert Your Message (Optional)

If you want to include a message along with the picture, tap on the body of the email and start typing. This step is also optional but can be useful if you want to provide some context or additional information.

Step 5: Attach Picture

To attach a picture:

  • Option 1: Tap on the camera icon located above the keyboard. This will allow you to take a new photo or select an existing photo from your camera roll. Once you’ve selected the photo, it will be automatically attached to your email.
  • Option 2: If you don’t see the camera icon, tap and hold anywhere in the body of the email until a menu appears. Tap on the right arrow, then choose “Insert Photo or Video.” Select a photo from your camera roll and it will be attached to your email.

Step 6: Send Your Email

Once you’ve attached the picture to your email, you’re ready to send it. To do this, tap on the send icon, usually represented by a paper airplane icon located at the top right corner of your screen. Your email, along with the attached picture, will now be sent to the recipient(s).


  • If you want to attach multiple pictures, simply repeat step 5 for each additional photo.
  • If you change your mind and want to remove an attached picture, tap and hold on the picture until a menu appears. Choose “Remove” from the menu options.
  • If you’re having trouble attaching a picture from certain apps, make sure that app has permission to access your photos. You can check this by going to Settings > Privacy > Photos and enabling access for that particular app.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully learned how to attach a picture to an email on iPhone. Now you can easily share your favorite moments with friends and family through email.
