How to attach multiple photos to iPhone email

Select several images from the Camera Roll to share

One of the great things about the iPhone is that it's easy to attach a photo to an email to quickly share something you've snapped with friends and family.

However, it's not so obvious how to attach more than one image. When browsing through your Camera Roll with full-screen photos, the sharing button (bottom left) is fairly prominent; tap it and Email Photo is the first option.

To attach multiple photos (up to five are allowed per email) you need to return to the thumbnail view in the Camera Roll and tap the sharing button at the top right of the screen.

This switches to the Select Items view and you can tap several photos to select them. A green tick appears on each photo you tap.

Tap Share at the bottom of the screen, then Email. The photos will be inserted in the body of a new email.

When you've added the recipients, a subject and a message (the latter two are optional), tap Send. A message will appear asking which size to send the photos: Small, Medium, Large or Actual Size. Next to each option you'll see the total size of the email in KB or MB. It's unwise to send more than 10MB in one go - some email systems will reject the message entirely if it's too large.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
