Which application do I use to create a letter with photos attached? My text edit has no camera icon to insert any images.
You could buy Pages from the App Store or you can get a free Office Suite like LibreOffice.
You don't need a camera icon. Just drag the image file into the document.
That said, TextEdit isn't ideal for that sort of thing - Pages or MS Word would be better as you can make the text flow around the picture and move it about in the document for the best position.
