How do I add apps (Like gmail and messager) as options to send photos in Microsoft Photo?

Hi there and thanks ahead of time,

When I try to send a photo through Microsoft photo, it gives me the option to "add other apps" but it doesn't work. It it takes me to the Microsoft store and shows me the most popular apps which have nothing to do with what I am trying to accomplish. I simply want the option of sending photos though Gmail, AOL and Messanger. How do I accomplish this?

Many thanks ,

    Hello there,

    Have you added any Email clients to your device? Do you get any error messages while you try to send a photo?

    What is the size of the image some Email clients have a limitation on the size that you can share directly via Email.

    To send a photo or photos as email attachments, click on the "Photo Email" option and select "Send photos as attachments." Use the radio buttons to select the photo size to send. Click "Attach" to open a new message in your default email program with the photo or photos already attached.
