Sending jpeg pictures with hotmail

  briandy 19:14 19 Oct 2007

This is probably an easy question but I cannot resolve it. How can I imbed jpeg pictures into the body of an email instead of sending them as attachments?

I don't use Outlook Express, but in Incredimail there is the option to 'Insert Picture' as well as 'Add Attachment'. Insert Picture puts the picture in the body of the email.

i am not aware of hotmail having this facility apart from add attachments. sorry ( been trying for ages )

Outlook Express has an "insert" tab also with a variety of things to insert. You may need to resize any picture before inserting.

as far as i am aware your question is re hotmail and not oe?

As you say, but as it will not work then OE may be the other option which does seem to work.

I am using hotmail and not Outlook Express. If it is possible in OE then I should be able to use that I hope. The frustrating thing is that I managed it by accident a few weeks ago but I don't how!

Why not use Incredimail, much better/easier and free. I and all my relatives and friends use click here very easy to set-up with a hotmail address.

Hi Briandy

I am sure you can "cut & paste" jpegs,

I am sure I have done that on several
occasions myself.

Hope thats helpful

Kind Regards

Are you really using Hotmail - or Windows Live Mail?

As Rogmur says you can definitely Copy/Cut and Paste, although you will probably suffer a loss in definition.
