We can email photos right out of Aperture, right out of iPhoto. I guess you can say that's a old fashion way of photo sharing but it does come in handy and there are times we want to do it. The Aperture method is very straightforward. iPhoto has a bit of a fun twist. I'll show you both. We'll start with Aperture right now. I'm going to select this image, go to Share, go to Email, we'll select a recipient, which I will send it to me for this, give it a name.
And then over here, we get to determine the size of the attachment. And if you hold your mouse there long enough, it will even show you the dimension. So, Large is 1280 on the longest side, Medium 640, and Small 320 and then of course you have Actual Size too. So, we'll set it Large for this one right here. You make that determination and then, all you have to do is send it and off it goes. It's really very simple. You can do multiple photos also.
You just select the multiple photos before you actually send it out. Let's do it with iPhoto because iPhoto is interesting. So, we want to send that. So again, I go to the Share menu and I'm going to choose Email right here. Now, look what we get. This is what I mean; this is a little bit more interesting. We have these fun templates and we can choose which template we want.
This is the way the person gets it too. So, let's say that you want to do announcement. You want to have fun. You can just say, My New Car, you could do that right here too. On the message size, it tells you right now. Now, since we're using a template, we do have some options, still even within the template. So, you can choose the Large, Medium and Small and Optimized. We'll just go with Medium right here.
And you got to make sure that this box is checked or the whole endeavour goes up in flames, right? But it's kind of fun because if you want to use a template, if you want to do something a little different than just attaching the photo to a regular Email and having it appear as a regular attachment. If you actually want to create what I call a sort of a virtual eCard right here, then open your library in iPhoto and take advantage of this mail functionality that they have and all these kind of cool templates that are waiting for you right here.
