can't send photos from my android phone

I used to be able to quite easily take photos on my android phone and tap the icon, share button, below the photo and email the photo to my family and friends.

All of a sudden, without my doing anything, I don't have that option? The share button,icon, is there and nineteen different options show up under the photo, none of which say email. I get gmail (which I don't use), 3 Facebook icons, (which I seldom use), google+, send to Kindle (why would I send a photo to Kindle?????), add to maps, etc....

I can't believe this is something complicated. I have done absolutely nothing new, added nothing new, changed nothing on my phone.

Any help would be appreciated.

Why don't you start by telling us what photo app you are using.

9 times out of 10, the problem is that people can't figure out how to follow the directions posted here.

IMO, pasting a link to photos hosted elsewhere is just as good.

XSleeper, I think his complaint is not that he can't post pics on this forum, but he can't send pics to anybody.

to the OP, Try turning off the phone and/or removing battery. Try a different photo app. Go to the settings and turn off all picture options and then turn off phone, turn back on and reset all photo/pics options.
