    Hello everyone,

    Newbie here to the forum, but a 3 or 4 year iPad vet. If that makes sense. Lol

    I've been having an issue sending photos. Now I know you can go to your photo gallery on the IPad 2 and click a couple pictures then send them away, but my issue is trying to send 100+ photos at a time. (Business related. That's why it's a lot of photos)

    The only way I know how to do this is to " insert photo " in to a new email message. This is very time consuming especially if I have to send well over 100 photos. Sometimes around 150 to 170 photos. I've tried using Dropbox and other ways, but the person is not very computer literate. The only way he claims he is able to receive photos is when I am able to insert a photo in to an e-mail message. Is there anyway to zip the files and just insert one file with all the pictures attached?

    I've read several photo/email issues on this forum using the search function. I've also checked the first 10 pages of the iPad 2 forum to see if anyone had a similar issue. Nothing came up that could help. I'm very sorry for this long post.

    Respectfully,
    Ivan

    When I take the pics using my camera I upload them to my laptop. I then upload them to photobucket. From photobucket I manually download them one at a time to my iPad. From my ipad I have to insert one photo at a time. That's the only way I know how I can send multiple photos. Most email providers set a limit like 25megs. :-( all the photos from my last email was around 478megs.

    I can't think of any quick way of doing this. From "Camera Roll" you are limited to 5 images per email. You can add more using the mail app, but for you it's a tedious process.

    In this case, I'd bail, add the photos to iPhoto on my Mac and send them from there. I honestly don't think the iPad is the ideal tool for what you are trying to accomplish.

    Yes. Use Windows Explorer to download the photographs. Explorer will see your iPad as a camera. Right click on it, (from memory) Properties and select download images.

    Not too sure of the exact procedure, but it is definitely in that context menu.

    Just to make sure we are on the same page....

    I take the pics with a regular camera. A sony iirc. I connect the camera to my laptop. I upload them to my windows laptop. After that I upload them to photobucket. Then I download every pic to the iPad. Individually which is a pain. After I download them to my ipad I hook up the iPad to my laptop(iTunes) and upload them to iTunes?

    Looks like we are not on the same page. I don't understand why the iPad has a use here. It would be far easier to email them using Outlook than the toy email client supplied with the iPad.

    Do you have a specific reason for wishing to email from the iPad when the photographs are already on the laptop?

    The only reason the iPad is being used because it's the only way I know how to send tons of pictures. On my laptop when I zip the files and try using yahoo or other email providers they set a limit to like 25megs per email. Which would require me to send tons of emails with files. The combined size of my last email was almost 500megs. With the ipad I can insert all the pics and send them in one email.

    OK. I still don't see any way of doing this that is not horribly labor intensive.

    Over to the forum, I guess, and see if anyone can think of anything.

    Maybe iOS 8 will allow selection and sending of whole photo albums. That would sort things out for you.

    What about uploading the files to something like megaupload, and simply emailing a link?
