I can open the Windows Photo Gallery, select the picture, select e-mail and the box opens allowing me to re-size the picture; I then click 'Attach' and that's where it all goes wrong - instead of opening an e-mail for me to attach the pic to it it goes straight to 'Sending e-mail'. How do I get the e-mail format (and where are my pictures going to lol)?
Hmm, I use XP and Incredimail, I never have to re-size photos when sending by email - Incredimail does it automatically, provided the right box is ticked. The way I advised you, is the way I do it myself.
Mine tells me that outlook express can not deal with it and I should use outlook, so this may well be where it ends up. I use photo paint to get my pics ready, usually save them to the desktop so there easy to find to attach, then delete them. (leaving the originals unchanged)
All I am doing is following the instrucions in the Help section of Vista to send pictures - after I click attach after re-sizing the picture, the link to open the e-mail format letter is missing. What I am asking is - how do I get that link back?
I think this only works with outlook, which means you need ms office, or you use a seperate pic. programme (picasa 2) to edit your pics and then attach them as from with in your email programme. skidzy (yes I still call it outlook express even though it's windows mail)
