Hi all,

This may see a trivial problem, but it's bugging the life out of me.

I want to add multiple pictures from my photo library, as attachments, to an email. Unfortunately, when I try to do this, it adds them to the body of the email, making it look incredibly messy and text appears all over the place.
Is this possible? Can anyone help?

Thanks,

R.

I'm not sure what you're doing to make your text appear all over the place. If you insert photos below the text they appear below the text. What are the steps you are taking to lead to this?

Sure, but I'd rather have the main body of the email be text-only, with the images as attachments, rather than displaying a bit of text, scrolling for 2 seconds past a hi-res photo, then getting another bit of text.

Anyway, the main issue is adding the the photos as attachments rather than embedded within the body of the email. Is there a way to do this, please?

I can’t see a way to do it, but why not just add all of the photos right at the bottom of the email after the text.

No magic way directly from the Photos App to the Mail app regardless of where you start. They'd have to be zipped in a third party app like Bundler or some similar workaround.
