How can you send pictures from "camera" to email or twitter?

I thought that getting a playbook would be easier than getting an iPad but I think I might be wrong. I'm trying to post a picture that I've taken on my twttter account and can't for the life of me figure out how.  More...I wanted to attach a picture to email and can't figure that out either.  Can anyone tell me if it's possible and if so, how do you do it.

 

Thanks much!!

Go to your message app.  compose a new email, then at the top you will see a paper clip that is how you attach your file.

I tried to send a note via hotmail and don't see a paper clip. This is my frustration.

I just tried on Hotmail, and when you are creating a new message, just below the SUBJECT box it says INSERT, and the first item on the right on INSERT is ATTACHMENTS, and a little further on the right there is PHOTOS

 

If you are uploading a picture from the Playbook, you will need to use the ATTACHMENT, or if you are uploading using the Photo Album that you have with your Hotmail account then use the PHOTOS

 

Good luck

Re: How can you send pictures from "camera" to email or twitter?

On the Gmail mobile site, there appears to be no option to attach a file.

However! If you save your email as a draft before sending it, scroll to the bottom of the pane and you should see a link that takes you to the desktop version of Gmail.

Reopen your email and you can attach your file and send it.

Hope that helps!
