How To Email Photo From iPad

Dear Computer Lady,

How do I put a picture from my iPad into an email to send to my granddaughter? I have tried to figure it out, but all I get is frustrated.

Thank you for helping me with my iPad! Gretchen

Dear Gretchen,

You can simply use copy and paste to put your picture in an email message. Here is how.

First, go to your pictures on your iPad, and find the photo that you want to send in your email.

Tap and hold your finger on the picture until a “Copy” button appears over the picture.

Release your finger, and tap on the copy button.

Now, go to your email app and create a new email message.

Tap and hold your finger in the body of the email until the round magnifying glass appears. Release your finger and the “Paste” button appears, tap on the “Paste” button to insert your photo into the email.

Now, send the email as usual.
