Sending photos as attachments with hotmail

I have tried to send some photos using my hotmail email address. I have attached the photo to the short message. But when I press send, all I get is a message saying the photo is being downloaded and if I press send the photo will not be sent. This shows for several minutes and the message is not sent. No problem with ordinary emails with just words.

First thing to consider is: How many Megabytes is the picture.

Secondly : Hotmail uploads the picture tottheir Server before sending it. How long this takes depends on the size of the picture/s and your Upload Speed.

You will be limited to 10Mb size of photo(s). Try reducing the size of the photo(s) and try again ? as wee eddie states, you also need to be patient if file size is large. If you do reduce the size, keep your original by copying it to a new folder and then use the copy to reduce the size. If you want help with reducing size, get back to us.
