I'm using iCloud for everything (great for syncing) and just emailed a photo via iPhoto.

When I click on Sent, I don't see the email there, although I know the email sent. I logged onto iCloud, on the web, to check and it's not there either.

Are photos sent via iPhoto not included in the Mail actions?

No wait, I see that you can change the settings to send from iPhoto or Mail.

It was sending from iPhoto (which isn't desirable).

Actually, this isn't resolved.

Why should this happen?

Why does sending mail from iPhoto (through iCloud) not show up in iCloud's Sent folder (or in Mail's Sent folder)? In fact, if mail (with pics) is sent from iPhoto, then there is no trace of those messages anywhere.

If you change the mail sending app to "Mail", then it uses Apple Mail to send the photos (through iCloud) and they show up in Sent items.

Any idea?

I don't have an answer for you on how to change this, but that is just how it works. The only way to have a record of a sent photo is to use the send in Mail option.

Maybe this is what you're looking for (i don't have iCloud).
Taken from iPhoto '11: Email your photos:


To view your photo email messages:

To view email you send from iPhoto, you need to send yourself each email message. iPhoto can automatically send you a “blind” carbon copy (blind means that your recipients won’t see that you are a recipient too).

  1. Choose iPhoto > Preferences, and then click Advanced.
  2. Select “Automatically Bcc myself.”

You can also see whether or when you emailed a photo. Select the photo, click the Info button in the toolbar, and look in the Sharing section to see to whom and when the photo was sent. Click the entry in the Sharing section to open an email you’ve sent, so you can view, edit, or resend it. (If you don’t see a Sharing section, you haven’t shared the photo.)

Did not know this. I did command-i on a test photo I emailed yesterday and sure enough it shows I shared it and to whom.
