Attaching photos to a text

How do I attach a photo to a text using Anywhere?

Hi @philp

Good question.

Doing so on your phone, versus a PC/Chromebook, may be slightly different, depending on make/model.

Tells us about your phone and/or other devices you may be using. That would help viewers offer specific advice.



I use anywhere on my Window 10 devices much more often than on my phone. One very easy way to attach an image is by grabbing it with the Windows snipping tool and pasting it into the message field. Here, I just pasted a snippet of the snipping tool icon here:



On my Moto X Pure, I just clicked the paper clip on the left side and it allowed attaching (either from file or take a picture)

Hi @philp,

If you’re using Anywhere on a computer, the instructions are here:

If you’re asking about attaching a photo to a text message on the phone, here are the steps:

  1. With the Anywhere app already open to the conversation where you’d like to send the text message, tap the paperclip icon at the left of the text entry field.
  2. If prompted, “allow” Anywhere permission to take pictures and record video.
  3. By default, it will open to the camera so you can take the picture or video right then. Simply tap the checkbox to take a photo and it will be added to the conversation.
  4. If you want to send a photo you have stored on the camera rather than one you take right then, tap the scenic photo icon in the middle of the blue bar, just below the big checkmark.
  5. If prompted, “allow” Anywhere to access photos, media and files on your device.
  6. Scroll through the photos and tap the one you’d like to attach.
  7. You can either tap the “x” to remove the attached photo or tap the send icon to send it.
