How to Import Email Photo Attachments to iPhoto


Apple's iPhoto software provides users with photo-editing and photo-management options, letting you adjust margins, brightness, contrast and more. This program, the default image editor on Macs, prompts users with one-click import options when your Mac detects a connected camera or SD card. If you want to import photos from emails rather than connected devices, the process is not automatic, but it is still fairly straightforward.

  • Log in to your email account.

  • Click "File," then click "Save attachments," if you're using the default Mac OS X email program. If you're using a third-party email service or a browser-based email account, attachments are often saved by clicking directly on a small paper-clip icon near the top of the email message.

  • Browse your computer's folders and click "Save" to download the email photo attachments to the selected folder.

  • Open iPhoto from your desktop.

  • Click on the "File" menu.

  • Click "Import to Library." A window pops up listing your computer's files. Browse these files until you locate the recently downloaded images.

  • Select the photo you want to import into iPhoto. Hold down the command key if you want to select multiple photographs.

  • Click "Import" to finish placing the photos in your iPhoto library for editing.
