For many people, an iPhone is really more of a camera than it is a phone at all. Later generation iPhone cameras take such good pictures, and have so much storage capacity for those pictures, that we snap away any time anything relatively photo-worthy presents itself. When one of those 20 pictures turns out so good you want to share it, you have lots of quick and easy options, provided the intended recipient has an iPhone as well. And even if he or she doesn’t, transferring images from an iPhone is still blissfully easy. How to use AirDrop to share photos between iPhones First, make sure the AirDrop feature is enabled on both iPhones . Go to the photo you wish to share, then tap the little square with the arrow pointing up out of it at the bottom left. (If you can’t see that icon, just tap the image, and it should appear.) If you want to send several images at once, tap the circles on the bottom right corner of the other pictures to select them. 1. Just below the image, you will see the AirDrop icon, which looks like concentric blue circles with a white triangle poking up from the bottom. Ask the intended image recipient to turn on their AirDrop function from within their phone’s settings. 2. Tap the person’s name once it appears in the AirDrop space. IMG_3827 3. Once they accept the AirDrop offer, the photo(s) will transfer. Also see our article, “How to AirDrop a file from an iPhone to a Mac or other Apple devices,” for more details.

Tap the blue “+” at the top left of the screen to create a new album. 3. Tap “New Shared Album.” 4. Name the album, then tap next. 5.
