Add photos & attachments to your emails

You can send photos and files as attachments in Inbox.

Add photos

You can share images in two ways:

Inline: Photos show up within the text of your email so the other person can easily see them.

As an attachment: This option makes it easier for the other person to download or share your photos. Photos are attached to your email as files.

  2. Open or create an email.
  3. In the compose window, tap Attach Attach.
  4. Choose from your most recent photos or take a photo.
  5. Your photo will be added inline.
  6. Tap the image and then Send as attachment.
Attach files

Troubleshooting

To send large attachments, you can use Gmail to insert from Google Drive instead.
