  • If you have a lot of photos and finding it difficult to locate specific ones, you can use the search bar or sort them by date or album.

Step 3: Share Photos

After selecting the desired photos, tap on the share icon usually located at the top or bottom of the screen. The share icon is represented by an arrow pointing upward or an envelope symbol.

When you tap on the share icon, a list of available sharing options will appear. Scroll through the list and select your preferred email app.

Common email apps include Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, and more. If you don’t have an email app installed, you may need to download one from the Google Play Store.

Step 5: Compose Email

After selecting your email app, it will open with the selected photos attached. Now, you can compose your email by filling in the recipient’s email address, subject line, and any additional text you want to include.

    Congratulations! You have successfully emailed photos from your Android device. Now all that’s left is to wait for your recipients to enjoy those beautiful memories captured in pictures.
