Stll problem copying picture from e-mail

  Duncanf 23:41 16 Sep 2010

I was looking back in previous posts as I've received a large picture (not attachment)in an e-mail and tried most of the usual methods to get it into a powerpoint with no success. Diemmess, in one earlier post mentioned 'right click and save' but doing that and pasting into powerpoint only gives me a white sheet. Any ideas? Using XP Pro and Orange for my e-mails.

If you right click and save you then dont paste you choose Insert> Picture >from file

Thanks eedcam. Sorry, I was slightly wrong in my post. I was using 'copy' and 'paste' and getting a white sheet. When I tried to 'right click and save' as Diemmess had suggested in an earlier post, I got the error message 'Could not complete the operation due to error 800700de.'

Does the picture 'rightclick and save' work?
are you able to save the picture as a .jpg to a file and open it to see the picture?

If not then it is embedded in the email and a different method is required.

Thanks lotvic and john bunyan. The 'right click and save' didn't work but I'm pursuing john bunyan's options! Thanks to you both!

I use Outlook 2007 and W7. Tried right clicking and "Save" on an embedded photo. Then Tried Paint- Paste. It opened OK. I imagine the same with any photo imaging programme.
Maybe different wit XP.

I've done that before and saved into Paint but this time it's not letting me past the 'right click!' Still trying the other options you suggested. Thanks.

Just tried Paint and Photoshop CS5. Works in Paint if I click Paste button top left corner. Curiosly does not work in PS!

Thanks to you all. That's it fixed. The copy into Paint worked. I'm very grateful as always!
