Why don't they let us add attachments from within the email? I hate having to send several emails each with one picture or attachment..

Or am I missing something?

you can go into the pictures app, click the little swish arrow in the top right.
select the multiple pictures you want, click share, and hit email.

You can send a certain number of pictures, i think somewhere i got was around 6 pictures a single email, there seems to be some sort of limit. You can do this same method for MMS too, although there is a limit on that too.

EDIT: checked it real quick. The email option goes away after i select 6 pictures (so 5 pictures an email) and the message option goes away after i select 10 pictures (so 9 pictures per message)

You can copy and paste multiple times though. I think the email limit is 20 pictures, although my memory is fuzzy on that.

Exactly.. I had to reply to a email to get my iPad case replaced today, and they wanted a picture.. So since I couldn't add it to our email conversation, I had to upload it to photobucket and send them the link.

Just add a attachment button! How hard is that?

Install Anyattach will do the job

There's an attachment data limit involved - somewhere between 20 and 50 MB, with the 50 MB being the one most mentioned. That's what limits the number of photos. If you select the small size photos as attachments, you can have more of them... up to the data limit.

However, I've found the email gets very, VERY slow to upload when you get over about 15 MBs.
