android – Attach a photo to the email


Good morning everyone, the question is as follows. I have some basic fields (name, phone etc), and an option to take pictures. I already have the email sending and the take photo button working, I can get the values ​​of all fields and even take the photo, but I want to know how I can attach the photo to this email…

These are the methods to take the photo and save it to the mobile phone memory card.

public void abrirCamera(){
        File picsDir =       Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory(Environment.DIRECTORY_PICTURES);
        File imageFile = new File(picsDir, "foto.jpg");
        Intent i = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
        i.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, Uri.fromFile(imageFile));

public void takePhoto(View view)
    Intent intent = new Intent("");
    File photo = new File(Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory
            (Environment.DIRECTORY_PICTURES), "Pic.jpg");

    intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, Uri.fromFile(photo));
    imageUri = Uri.fromFile(photo);

    startActivityForResult(intent, TAKE_PICTURE);

public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {

    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

    switch (requestCode) {

        case TAKE_PICTURE:
            if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {

                Uri selectedImage = imageUri;
                getActivity().getContentResolver().notifyChange(selectedImage, null);

                ImageView imageView = (ImageView)  getActivity().findViewById(;

                ContentResolver cr = getActivity().getContentResolver();
                Bitmap bitmap;

                try {
                    bitmap = android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.getBitmap(cr, selectedImage);

                    //Toast.makeText(getActivity(), selectedImage.toString(), Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

                } catch (Exception e) {
                    //Toast.makeText(getActivity(), "Failed to load", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                    Log.e("Camera", e.toString());


You will need to create an Intent by putting your photo's Uri as EXTRA_STREAM .

Try something like this:

private void enviaEmail(Uri uriDaSuaFoto) {
    Intent emailIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND); 

    //Definindo que o conteúdo sera uma imagem

    //Qual e-mail a ser enviado
    emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, ""); 

    //Titulo do e-mail

    //Corpo do e-mail
    emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "Corpo do email"); 

    //Aqui você coloca a uri da sua imagem
    emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, uriDaSuaFoto);

    //Criando um dialog para o usuário poder escolher qual aplicação enviar o e-mail
    startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, "Enviar e-mail com"));
