How to email photos from Mac through iPhoto?

Ok there are many ways by which you can send photos to your friends in emails. Directly from your email services etc. but using your Mac account and sending the pictures can be directly done from the iPhoto app in Mac. Everything you have to do is to follow this guide –

Open iPhoto application in your mac. And then open the photo album view so that you can view many photos at the same time, than the enlarged single photo. You can directly open any web albums that you have created earlier.

Adjust any size of the photos, and make them according to your wish. This would set your image sizes. And now you can select the photo that you want to send. You can select multiple photos to send, but keeping the number limited to a smaller one would be better to have small attachment size.

After you have selected the photos, select the EMail option at the bottom right section of options.

  1. i want to email photos using iphoto as attachments only. i don’t want them to be shown in the body of the email? how do i do this?

  2. This did not work for me. The photos did not show up in the email message I sent. You could tell where they should be….and the titles were present, but no images. Very frustrating!!!!

  3. This did not work for me. I only went online to get information about this because my email icon will not send. All the other choices are there, but it won’t let me email the photos, no matter what I do. Obviously, I’m missing something in the following process.

    I have photo albums on I-Photo
    I select either an album or a photo to email
    I open all the photos
    I then try to email it, but the icon is not clickable.
