How to Insert Picture or Video into iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch Email
As of iOS 6, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users can now attach photos and videos on their device to email messages after they start writing that email message. Prior to iOS 6, you had to select the photos or video you wanted to email, and then those where the only photos or videos you could send in that email. You can attach photos or videos to your email messages through an action menu that's accessed via a touch command in the body of the message.
