Insert files from iPhone or iPad in your messages on Mac
Take a picture, scan a document or a draw a sketch with your nearby iPhone or iPad and have it appear instantly on your Mac to include in a message conversation.
In the Messages app on your Mac, select a conversation.
Choose File > Import from iPhone or iPad, then choose one of the options.
On your iPhone or iPad, do one of the following:
For a photo: Take the photo, then tap Use Photo or Retake.
For a scan: Scan the document. Your device detects the edges of the document and autocorrects any skewing of the image — if you want to adjust the area included in the scan, drag the frame or its edges. When you’re ready, tap Keep Scan or Retake. When you’re satisfied with the scan, tap Save.
For a sketch: Draw a sketch using your finger; on iPad, you can also use Apple Pencil. When you’re ready, tap Done or Cancel.
On your Mac, the picture, scan or sketch appears in the message field.
If you want to include a written message with the photo, scan or sketch, type it in the field, then press Return on your keyboard.
If you have photos and other files on your Mac, you can also drag them to the message field or copy and paste them to send.
