The reason many of us use our mobile devices to take photos is to share them with others. Unlike with the photos that come from my expensive DSLR, I can easily capture, edit, and share mobile images all within minutes.

Let’s look at the options for uploading and sharing your images with your Android device.

Basic Sharing

This section walks you through the process of sharing an edited photo straight from the Gallery app to an email.

Step 1

In the Gallery app, press the words “Filmstrip view” to change to Grid view.

Step 2

Select an image by tapping it, allowing it to fill the screen.

Step 3

Tap the Share menu (represented by three dots connected by lines), and select the app you wish to share your image with; in this case, Gmail.

Step 4

To share multiple photos, return to Grid view in the Gallery app and tap the Gallery menu button (three gray dots in the upper-right corner). Then tap Select Item to begin choosing two or more photos to share at once.

Step 5

The photo is attached to the email.

Step 6

To add more images to this email, press the Gmail app’s menu icon (three gray dots in the upper-right corner) and select Attach Picture.

You can follow these same steps to share photos to any social media platform, such as Twitter, Google+, or Facebook.
