Viewing Your Images

Once photos are shot, a thumbnail of the last image taken will be displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen. Tap on this thumbnail to launch the Photos app, which allows you to view, delete, email, and print your digital images. You can also assign a photo to a contact or use it as a wallpaper image.

Another way to launch the Photos app is by tapping on its app icon displayed on the Home Screen. The photos shot using your iPhone 4 or iPad 2 will be stored within a folder called Camera Roll. Upon launching the Photos app, tap on the Camera Roll folder.

On the main Photos screen will be thumbnails of each image taken using the camera(s) built into your phone or tablet. Tap on any thumbnail to view a full-screen version of the image. Or tap on the icon displayed at the top-right corner of the screen to choose one or more images to email/share, copy, print, or delete.

When looking at an image in full-screen mode on your iPad 2, you can tap this same icon, which will now be displayed between the Slideshow and trashcan icon (as shown in Figure 2) to gain access to a pull-down menu with the following options: Email Photo, Send to MobileMe, Assign to Contact, Use as Wallpaper, Print, or Copy Photo. On your iPhone 4, this command icon can be found in the lower-left corner of the screen when viewing an image in full-screen mode.

Figure 2 From within Photos, you can access this pull-down menu to share your images in a variety of ways.

From the Photos app, you can view many thumbnails on the screen at once; view one photo at a time in full-screen mode; or on the iPad 2, activate the Slideshow option, which will cause photos to automatically be displayed one full-screen image at a time, using an animated transition between images and background music you select.
