If you want to send attachment eg: a photo on your iPhone or iPad, you would usually have to find that picture in your phone library fist, then choose “Email Photo”. Then a new Email message will be created and the photo you want to send is nicely attached to it.
What if you want to add attachment (eg: a photo) to the Email message you’re editing? Say that your friend sent you a picture of her dog and you wanted to attach a picture of your dog to the reply Email. There is no “Attach” button in the “Mail”. Here is a way I found that essentially allows you to send attachments from “Mail” on your iPhone
Add Attachment Using “Copy” & “Paste”
- Compose your Email message as usual, when you need to attach a photo
- Switch to “Photos”, find the photo you want to add as attachment
- Tab on the photo and hold until you see “Copy”, click on “Copy”
- Go back to your exiting mail message, at the place where you want to the photo to appear, tab->hold-> choose “Paste”
You should be able to attach videos using this method as well though I have not tried it myself.
Alternatively, you can use Group Email. With Group Email! you can send email with attachments to single contacts, to groups, to handpicked set of contacts or to custom distribution lists. You can optionally attach photos, videos, documents, locations information with map and address, audio clips, pasteboard content and contacts information (vCard or text).
