    Question I send - I'm sending

    Hi,
    I have to send a file to a friend by e-mail, so I write also a message. Should I say:

    1) I send you photos and video.
    2) I'm sending you photos and video.

    Are both correct or just one of them?
    Thank you in advance :)

    Default Re: I send - I'm sending

    I am sending (I'm sending).

    "I send" would be for habitual or repeated actions. I send you photos and videos every Monday of the events of the weekend.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
