How do I send a picture from my gallery?

Answered by James Kissner

To send a picture from your gallery, you can easily do so using the Photos app on your device. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through the process:

1. Open the “Photos” app on your device. This app is usually represented by a colorful pinwheel icon or a multicolored flower-like icon.

2. Once you’re in the app, you’ll see all your photos organized by date or location. Navigate through your albums or scroll through your photo grid to find the picture you wish to send.

3. Once you’ve located the desired photo, tap and hold on it. This action will bring up a menu with various options.

4. After tapping and holding the image, you can also select additional photos if you wish to send multiple images at once. To do this, simply tap on each additional photo to select them.

5. With your desired photo(s) selected, look for the “Share” button. This button is typically represented by a square with an upward-facing arrow or by the word “Share.” It is usually located at the bottom of the screen or in the top-right corner of the app.

6. When you tap the “Share” button, a list of available sharing methods will appear. This list may include options like Gmail, Messages, WhatsApp, Facebook, or other messaging and social media apps you have installed on your device.

7. Choose the sharing method you prefer by tapping on it. For instance, if you want to send the picture via email, select the Gmail option. If you wish to send it through a messaging app, choose Messages or your preferred messaging platform.

8. Once you’ve selected the sharing method, the chosen app will open with your selected photo(s) attached. From there, you can enter the recipient’s email address or phone number, write a message, and hit send to share the picture(s).

It’s worth noting that the specific steps may vary slightly depending on the device you’re using and the version of the operating system. However, the general process should be similar across most smartphones and tablets.
