    I'm trying to email photos from iPhoto and it keeps telling me it doesn't recognize my email/password combo and I know it's the right password. For now I deleted the email address so there is not one in there. How can I add my Gmail to iPhoto??

    Is your Gmail set up in Mail? If so, just change iPhoto>Preferences>General>Email photos using: to "Mail".

    No I haven't been using Apples Mail, just gmail webpage.

    User Name: your email address

    Triple check that password in another browser.

    Also...Google Two-Step Authentication enabled?

    Thanks. The 2-step authentication is not enabled on my gmail, should it be?
