    That is unfortunately so with the iPad unlike its big brothers the Macs. The only way you can do so is to, for a photo, open up the picture in Photos and then Share via the email function. With a file you can use the appropriate app, eg GoodReader or via DropBox and email that way.

    In the native app, there's the possibility to attach a photo from the Photo app.
    When writing an email, tap and hold where you want to add the picture, this will appear:
    image-1858626884.jpg
    When you choose "Insert ....", you'll see this:


    image-380162282.jpg

    Tap the album you need and choose a photo there.

    That stopped being true with iOS 6. See Johanna's reply. Though only Photos can be attached this way. Any other file type still requires you to go to the app containing the file and email from there.


    And in case the OP was using the GMail app instead of the native Mail app; there is a paper clip to the right of the Subject line when editing an email. Tap it to attache a photo.

    If you use the Mailbox app, you can attach photos as well as files. The files are imported from Dropbox.

    Thanks tp and J.A. I must stop relying on memory and better get to know the new system. Good to see another improvement, at least re photos via iOS7.
