Not everything about the iPhone is intuitive. For example, certain users (OK, me) have often wondered how to select more than one photo to share via e-mail or to delete.
I mean, there's no visible "select" option on the main Camera Roll page, and if you tap an individual photo, you get share/delete options solely for that photo--there's no option to go back and add more.
Today's tip is about a feature that's hiding in plain sight. Here's how to share or delete multiple photos:
- Open the Photos app, then choose the Camera Roll.
- Tap the button in the upper-right corner of the screen, which, for lack of a better term, I'll call the Action button.
- Now tap each photo (and/or video) you want to share or delete. You'll see a red check mark appear on each one.
- When you've finished making your selections, tap Delete to trash them or Share to forward them via e-mail or MMS.
Although the same selection process works in other albums on your iPhone, your options are limited to Share and Copy--you can't delete photos this way.
Speaking of Copy, you can use that function to paste photos into the body of an e-mail (as opposed to attaching them) or into any other apps where pasting photos might be useful. I'm thinking a word-processor document...
