you can do that by using the paper clip icon, in the editor here.
once you click it, next to the image url there is a small icon when you click on it, you can browse your mac for the image and finally click ok to upload it.
Alternatively you can use any file sharing websites such as www.wikisend.com
you can upload the image there, then you will be given a download link. copy it and paste it in the question so the other person can download it.
let me know if you need any more help
I do think google anything doesn't work as well on Apple devices as it does on PC format ones. But, I use Firefox as my browser here on MacBookPro. But, was using Safari on iPad. I don't think we can even access Firefox on iPads. Sort of the way Bill Gates built in Internet Explorer in his products, Steve Jobs kind of built in Safari on iPads, it seems.
But, I imported the picture I needed into laptop fm iPad and send message to mechanic with pic right there in the body of the message.
worked perfectly on laptop.
Thank you for the additional information on file sharing. what is ge.tt?
Send smiley faces again and we can close out for now.
