Can I insert picture/image directly into an email

I wonder if anyone can help.

Am I able to copy and paste an image/photograph/picture directly into an e mail I am sending through MS Outlook. At present it automatically goes in as an attachment

Many thanks for any help

I have just tried this and it worked ok for me.
Click in the email where you want to insert the picture.
Click on "insert"
Click on "picture"
Browse to the picture you want.
Click "open"
Click "ok"
If that still doesn't work check that you are set up to send e-mails in HTML.
Click on "tools"
Click on "options"
click on the "mail format" tab and chack that it is set for HTML and try again.
Good Luck!

Yes that OK but please do resize it to about 600x800 pixels otherwize will take for ever to send and your recipient wont thank you if they are on dial up -'cos it'll take forever to come in.
