The iPhone is generally a very intuitive device, however there are times when you need to do a little digging to find a useful feature.  The ability to select multiple photos is just such a feature.

When viewing a picture in the Photos app, you have the option to share the photo by simply selecting the share icon in the bottom left of the screen.
