Marking Up Photos You Email in iOS 9

I imagine many of us send photos using our email and I bet that is almost a daily occurrence. Whoever had the idea of putting a camera in a phone is partly to blame and also a stroke of genius. 

Occasionally I find that it would be useful to highlight something in a photo, in my line of work this could be a screenshot or a button to press on a computer, camera or console. It would also be handy to take a screenshot of a map on your iPhone or iPad and indicate something in this. 

[If you don’t already know you can take a screenshot  you press and hold the home button and then the power button, the screen will flash and you will hear the sound of the camera, assuming the sound is on. It then places it in your Photos app in All Photos].

Ok so back to highlighting a photo you want to email. When you add a photo/image to an email you can now add text, draw on it, zoom in on a section and add a signature. 

Here is a video I made to show you how to do this.
