Share Gallery Photos by SMS with HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Amanda, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to share a photo via SMS message from the Gallery application on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen, and at the bottom, we will see icons. It is in this area we need to focus now because we need to open up the applications folder.
Find the icon located at the bottom of the home screen in the middle.
It looks like a grid of white dots. It is the icon for the applications folder. Press down on it, and it will open up the folder.
Find the Gallery application.
Its icon looks like yellow sand dunes, and underneath, it says the word "Gallery". Press down on this icon and we will enter the Gallery application. What we want to do in this video is to show how to share a photo via SMS message. To do that, we must first find a photo.
Press down on "All photos" in this "Albums" section.
It doesn't matter which section we're in, we just need to find a photo. There are several ways that we can share a photo. Make sure that we are looking at photos in a group now, not individually.
Press down and hold down on a photo until a menu appears.
Find the word "Share" in the menu.
Press down on "Share" to share the photo. We will now show another way to share a photo.
Press the back arrow at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen to go back to the album.
Press the icon at the top of the album screen.
It looks like a little white circle with two arrows coming from it. Whenever we see this icon in this application, it means to share. If we press down on this, it will allow us to share via all different mediums. We want to show how to share by SMS message.
Press the "Messages" icon.
Now it will ask us to "Select a single item".
Press on a single image or photo that we want.
The "Compose" screen will appear.
We will see a grey bar appear at the bottom of the screen that says it's "Converting to MMS message...", which is multimedia messages. That's because we cannot send an SMS with any kind of media, so it's going to convert it.
The photo has been added and we have the option to "Add text" at the bottom of the screen.
Add a contact.
Press down on the icon shaped like a head and shoulders, located near the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Choose a contact.
Press down to place a tick in the box next to the recipient. We can select multiple contacts if we like.
Press the word "DONE (1)" in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
The bracketed number indicates the number of contacts chosen as recipients.
Check the message.
We have the contact, we have the photo that we want to share, and now we're ready to send this message.
Press the "SEND" icon located at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
Pressing this icon will share this photo via SMS and MMS messaging.
This concludes our tutorial on how to share a photo via SMS message from the Gallery application on an HTC One M8.
